It always fascinates me about the power of nature for healing and coming to the rescue of what ails us. This fact is especially true for the health of our skin as well as its appearance. Nevertheless, you may be unaware of exactly what sort of natural skin healing ingredients can best help you out when skin is damaged from burns, cuts or dealing with preventing a potential scar.

Natural Skin Healing Ingredients to Protect Against Blisters and Burns

If you are prone to getting your share of blisters, there are a few natural skin recovery ingredients that are worth your time to try. Believe it or not, the castor seed with its beneficial nutrients for addressing this inflammation and protect with its antioxidants to treat the skin is a great source. Therefore, when you first start noticing redness and pain of a blister about to form, try cleaning and drying the area first before dabbing some castor oil that is USDA certified organic or cold-pressed and covering with a bandage.

In addition, you also try using castor oil in this way on your corns over time to help them eventually soften. This method does not work overnight and requires patience, but the corn can shrink in size from my personal experience.

Another of these natural skin repairing ingredients is honey, being antibacterial and wonderful for calming inflammation. Clean and cover the area before applying honey on a bandage can also come in handy to stop a forming blister. Raw honey is a soothing antiseptic to prevent infection for burned skin as while as assisting the skin to renew itself with fresh tissue.

Calendula is also among those natural skin healing ingredients that can come to your skin’s aid when suffering from blisters or burns. The reason calendula officinalis, better known as flowering marigold, is important is because of the several ways it helps with pain and repairing injured skin. It has analgesic, antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, and antimicrobial properties that can save you from pain from blisters forming and visible ones to healing burns. It also can be used to treat insect bites with its plant-based antioxidants and inflammation fighting compounds like C-reactive protein and cytokines. Besides healing wounds, calendula can also help promote healing of open leg ulcers since it also can increase circulation to speed up the process.

More relief for burns and suffering for natural skin remedy ingredients are turning to milk products due to lactic acid, which helps alleviate pain due to its fats, protein and enzymes. When I dropped a scalding cup of hot chocolate in my lap a few years ago, compresses of milk helped cool the skin before turning to aloe vera for a healing salve.

Speaking of burns, lavender essential oil has properties for faster healing and pain relief with its anti-inflammatory and antibacterial capabilities. It can even help cut the skin’s risk of scarring.

Compresses of green tea or black tea are another of these natural skin healing ingredients that are good to have on hand for burned skin. Green tea especially proves promising for decreasing burn size when used in conjunction on burn wounds with Vaseline and silver sulfadiazine dressings according to the Indian Journal of Plastic Surgery, 2014 Sept.-Dec.

These are just a few tips for skin healing from nature that can help.  Sometimes, accidents happen. You need not suffer.

    I am a firm believer in honey and do know it works, It ha to be real honey though not the processed kind. Tea also is great, it works for sunburns as does vinegar (you might smell like a salad but it works) I have not tried flowering marigold or a couple of others. This was quite interesting.
