To a large extent, clear, smooth skin is healthy skin, and what's good for your skin is good...

Our lips frame one of our most notable features - our smile. But if our lips are dry, cracked, chapped, or blistered, there's not much to smile about. Since lips lack a barrier of dead, but protective, cells and have fewer and thinner layers of skin than the rest of our bodies do, they tend to dry out easily and...

Medical science and the public, alike, have long agreed on the positive relationship between vitamins and good health. Nonetheless, vitamins have, for the most part, been snubbed from cosmetics, skin creams, and beauty-care products.

The growing list of scientifically-formulated ingredients in these products adds to the illusion that pampering our hair with a modern array of elements beautifies hair. However, these powerful-sounding chemicals may do more harm than...

Examine the skin on the inside of your upper arm; then look at your face. Which skin is firmer, clearer, softer, and younger-looking? Most likely, the skin on the inner portion of your upper arm. Why? Because it has been better protected against sunlight and environmental pollutants which cause skin to lose its youthful qualities after years and years of exposure....

The use of natural products promote and maintain mental well-being, physical health, and beautiful skin has come full circle over the last 100 years or so. Before the 20th century, health remedies and beauty aids came primarily from organic products - such as clove oil for viruses, jasmine for relaxation, and honey for skin toning. During most of this century, however,...
