Check out the following natural products and beauty tips for beautiful skin care in winter season:
Winter skin protection. The inner stem of the root was dried and powdered and rubbed onto the hands and face in winter to protect the skin from the cold. (It was also used to waterproof rawhide.)
A mash of Rose Hips was made for skin problems
Now cosmetic companies use rose hips oil in creams and lotions to soothe the skin, as well as in anti-aging face creams, because it is thought that rose hips oil can reverse wrinkle formation.
Aloe Vera for healthy skin winter
Native Americans used aloe vera to sooth and heal the skin, as well as to hydrate and protect it from extreme climates in areas like dry deserts. It was also used to treat sunburn and for soap.
Sweetgrass for shiny skin
This flat-leafed bladed grass is considered sacred. It is smoked to purify individuals and their surroundings, and is used in ceremonies. It is even handled in a special way and with respect due to its spiritual powers. Some Native American women decorated their hair with sweetgrass. As a wash, sweetgrass was used to treat windburn and chapped skin. The tea can also be used as a hair tonic to make the hair shiny and fragrant.
Wild Mint for hair and skin
The Cheyenne Indians in Montana used a decoction of the wild mint plant as hair oil. The Thompson Indians of British Columbia used the whole plant soaked in warm water to make a solution that was used in hairdressing. Mint was also used in bath water to alleviate itchy skin.
If you have ever had an unfortunate case of fungus on your scalp, be sure to thank the Native Americans for the shampoo you used! Bear Berry is the active ingredient in anti-fungal shampoos but even if you don’t (thankfully) have scalp fungus, you can boil bear berry leaves and rinse your hair with the water to get a cool feel that no shampoo can ever give you. Bear berry salve is also good for rashes and will help to heal any scratches on your head.
Cactus for skin hydration. An anti-inflammatory, the leaves of the prickly pear were used to make a moisturizer to protect the skin from the sun. It also speeds up cellular turnover leading to improved skin texture and appearance.
Saw Palmetto was used by Native Americans for hair, scalp and skin care. Due to its ability to balance hormones in the body, it was used by Native American women to get rid of facial hair. It is now believed saw palmetto regulates excessive hair growth in women by suppressing DHT production in the body (a hormone produced by testosterone).
Yarrow for Fragrant Hair. Native Americans used an infusion of the leaves from this strong-scented perennial plant as a hair wash. The Okanagan Indians of British Columbia mixed the leaves and stems with white clematis (a perennial with bright yellow flowers) and witch’s broom branches to make a shampoo.
Jojoba, again, is now no longer a secret but it is still a priceless asset. Using jojoba oil, Native American women were able to make their hair soft even in the harshest conditions. Also, latest research suggests that bathing in a Jojoba extract helps to make skin softer and tighter thus removing wrinkles, acne and giving a youthful and age-defying look.
New Look of native american skin care
After review on native american beauty secrets have a look on new aspects of skin care in winter of native american!
When it comes to Miss America and beauty, the eyes are always a main focus point. Eye shadows in light hues help make the eyes seem wider and more startling. Though some subtle medium hues may be used for effect, your eye shadow should always remain on the light side. Make sure you curl each and every eyelash before applying any mascara to maximize length. It’s smart to use false lashes for extra volume, but use natural looking lashes trimmed to a normal length to prevent that spider-legs effect.
Your smile, and thus your mouth, is the next priority when it comes to Miss America and beauty. You must have clean, straight, shining white teeth to create a powerful smile. However, constantly wearing that smile can sometimes be difficult. That’s why many pageant contestants use a thin layer of petroleum jelly on their teeth. Spreading a light coating of the jelly across your teeth helps keep your lips from sticking when you have to smile repeatedly for long periods of time.
Proper hair care is another important part of basic pageant beauty. Your hair needs to be healthy from the inside, moisturized on the outside and trimmed regularly to prevent breakage. It’s also important to wash your hair every other day instead of every day. Daily washing strips your hair dry, regardless of the products you’re using. You need to give your hair time to absorb natural oils. By washing it every other day you’re cutting the damaging caused by the cleansing process in half. This gives you the perfect balance between your hair looking good and your hair staying healthy.
