Lavender for Healing Dry Skin
Your skin’s sebaceous glands are responsible for producing oil. As you age, they produce less of it and your skin becomes drier. Studies show that lavender oil hydrates and improves dry or scaly skin.
Look for lavender oil in moisturizing creams for your eyes, face and body.
Echinacea for Treating Blemishes
This flowering plant kills bacteria and reduces swelling. Hundreds of years ago, Native Americans used echinacea to treat skin wounds and infections.
Look for echinacea in facial soaps, masks and toners.
