If you've ever felt guilty about splurging on too many beauty products, stop yourself there. With important health benefits, there's no need to feel bad about adding these to your regime…
For ultra-protected skin
Pomegranate has been proven to protect the outer layer of your skin as well as aiding tissue repair and healing wounds, so look out for it in the ingredients lists! We love Dr Organic Pomegranate Skin Lotion (£7.19), which is also really hydrating and great for sensitive or irritated skin.
Treat dry or cracked skin
Health conditions such as diabetes and even strokes can lead to bad circulation and cracked, dry skin – a rich, anti-bacterial formula is what you need to hydrate the affected areas while also fighting bacteria. Lotil cream (£3.59) is perfect for this; the gentle formula rubs in without fuss, forming a barrier around broken skin.
For antiseptic action
Australian tea-tree oil is a well-known remedy for oily skin and acne, but did you know it could also be used for mouth ulcers, cold sores, in-grown hairs and dandruff? According to medical studies, this miracle oil also has antiviral properties and helps stimulate the immune system - we're sold. Try The Body Shop Tea-Tree Oil (£7.00), which can be applied directly to the skin.
Don't forget to floss
It may be a bit of a chore, but leaving flossing out of your dental routine is proven to increase the risk of gum disease, which has been identified as a risk factor for both heart and lung disease, as well as diabetes. Not to mention the bad breath. So add these easy Interdental Cleaners (£5.08) from Dentek into your morning regime, and keep everybody happy!
The all-in-one miracle remedy
With pumpkin seed oil, olive oil and wheatgerm extract, Burt's Bees Miracle Salve (£7.99) is a must-have for your beauty bag. Use this all-rounder on your hair, hands or body to hydrate and nourish skin exposed to the harsh effects of the outdoors.
While we've all heard the benefits of Argan oil for the hair and skin, it's actually hugely effective in many other ways. Fushi Organic Virgin Argan Oil (£13.00) is unique in that it can be applied onto the skin as well as taken internally, for a more balanced digestive system, stabilised blood sugar levels, boosted immunity and reduced cholesterol too.
