As we all know, pharmaceutical companies sell pills that are designed to treat everything the human body needs, from physical conditions to mental health issues. However, a lot of people are uncomfortable with the idea of just taking a handful of pills to solve their everyday problems. As such, we have come up with a list of natural remedies to counter a variety of problems and help boost your everyday life.
- To Aid Sunburn
Sunburn is the single worst thing about summer. However, the overexposure to ultra-violet rays from the sun, can allow sunburn to strike at anytime of the year. What UV does is increase the melanin count in your skin. Of course, the best cure to sunburn is prevention, but if it is too late to prevent and what you require is a natural aid then try either potato paste, cold compressed milk or baking soda, aloe vera, mint tea, witch hazel or even plain yoghurt.
- To Combat Acne and Spots
We’ve all been attacked by spots at some stage in our lives. It may have been a big fat pimple on your forehead that ruined a first date, or it could be that you woke up one day with dreaded acne. It’s a big problem for many people, which is why every television channel is littered with spot cream adverts. But how do you treat acne without dousing your skin in chemicals? Try washing with apple cider vinegar, or making a mask out of cinnamon and honey, make a paste from natural yoghurt and honey or just use papaya.
- For An Improved Libido.
History is littered with opinions on what natural products can boost a person’s libido. A lot of these remedies have been disproved, but some have been proven to make a real impact on people’s love lives. An improved love life comes with an array of health benefits ranging from improved blood flow and a reduced risk of heart problems, to better respiratory and nervous systems. Natural remedies that include the herb tribulus terrestris have been proven to increase a person’s libido, whilst other plants include rose, cinnamon and vanilla. But a boost in male virility isn’t all this remedy offer's; it also looks after the respiratory and nervous systems, making it another healthy benefit of sex.
- For Less Stress and Better Sleep
Not sleeping well for one night is bad enough, so having a chronic case of insomnia is dreadful. However, most sleeping pills come with hard-hitting side-effects that leave you drowsy the next day, and that’s at the very least. Long-term use of sleeping medication can seriously harm your health. But hope is not lost, as there are loads of different natural remedies to aid sleep. These can be ingesting juices that contain Melatonin such as cherry juice and chamomile, or it could be adjusting your lifestyle in certain ways, such as sticking to a set bedtime, or improving the Feng Shui of your bedroom, or regularly getting acupuncture.
