Natural Skin Care Treatment?

A natural skin care treatment is any type of skin care treatment that utilises natural products or methods of treating the skin. For example using a loofah to exfoliate the skin is a natural skin care treatment method. Similarly using a natural skin care product such as a facial clay mask to remove dirt, toxins and dead skin cells is also a natural skin care treatment.

On the other hand, a chemical skin peal is not a natural type of skin care treatment and neither is microdermabrasion.

Just what is a natural skin care treatment?

A natural skin care treatment is any type of skin care treatment that utilises natural products or methods of treating the skin. For example using a loofah to exfoliate the skin is a natural skin care treatment method. Similarly using a natural skin care product such as a facial clay mask to remove dirt, toxins and dead skin cells is also a natural skin care treatment.

On the other hand, a chemical skin peal is not a natural type of skin care treatment and neither is microdermabrasion.

 

Why use natural skin care treatments?

The answer is simple. For example, chemical skin peels have been known to cause sever skin irritation and subsequently increased skin sensitivity. This is not a desired result and can leave lasting sensitivity of the skin. These side effects are extremely rare when using natural skin care treatments. Using a loofah for instance may cause excessive amounts of skin being removed, due to excessive rubbing by the user, however this will not leave long term side effects and the next time, the user will probably not scrub their skin as vigorously and cause themselves no skin damage.

Similarly, a natural facial clay mask may dry the skin a bit too much if left on for too long, but again, this will not leave lasting effects. Using natural skin care treatments are less likely to cause problems in the first place, they are usually gentler to the skin and do not cause any damage.

 

What types of skin care treatments are available and what are some examples of natural skin care treatments?

There are many natural ways to treat the skin. For example, Baths of various types are natural skin care treatments and include: Mud-baths, Milk-baths, and of course baths with added essential oils and or herbs that benefit the skin. Then there is Aromatherapy massage, which uses essential oils massaged into the skin to achieve a variety of effect, not just on the skin, but also on physical and emotional levels.

Swedish Saunas are another way to flush out toxins in the skin and body and is very invigorating to the circulation of the skin, helping to bring vital nutrients to the living skin cells in the dermis. The idea of jumping under a cold shower or in Sweden into the snow, is to close the pores of the skin to prevent microbes from entering the pores - and to cool off.

Hydrotherapy is another natural skin care treatment method that has the potential to not only treat the skin, but also internal problems. Hydrotherapy is a part of naturopathic medicine and utilises water to treat the body. Use of hot/cold water to simulate blood circulation generally or locally, when applied to a specific area of the body, has the ability to help remove toxins from and bring nutrients to the superficial layers of the skin or other parts of the body.

By adding herbs or essential oils to hydrotherapy treatments the therapist can more specifically target a disorder or treat a specific problem, for example, dermatitis and other skin afflictions.

Natural skin care treatments are frequently offered by Beauty salons and Spas using mud packs to treat the skin. These mud packs have reputed healing properties and when prepared and used properly by qualified therapists, they can have beneficial effects on boils, eczema, and other skin disorders. The primary ingredient in mud is clay and clays have many beneficial effects on the skin.

Examples of non-natural skin care treatments

Non natural skin care treatments on the other hand include: microdermabrasion, chemical skin peels, botox injections and a host of other cosmetic manipulations, including surgery, all with the aim for a quick fix to improve the an individual’s complexion. The problem is, the effects rarely last and most of these treatments can potentially leave your skin worse off than it was before.

Of course any form of skin care treatment, natural or otherwise, can cause potential problems. Allergies to a variety of substances are increasingly common and these allergies can be to such seemingly innocent substances such as Strawberries, Peanuts and many more natural chemicals, however, it is less likely that individuals have an allergic reaction to a natural skin care treatment than one that utilises synthetic or concentrated chemical compound.

Another advantage of using natural methods to treat the skin is that if an allergic reaction or a side effect does occur, it is less likely to leave lasting or permanent effects. This is primarily because our bodies are able to deal with natural substances better than synthetic chemicals.
