Figs Are Among The Mediterranean Region’s Best Natural Skin Care Products
In the Mediterranean region, where the ingredients for the Naturally Mediterranean range of natural skin care products are sourced, fresh figs can be found everywhere during the summer months. For centuries, figs have been recognised as a natural aid to digestion, and a remedy for constipation, but in fact figs are also great for natural skin care.
The milky juice that seeps from the stems of fresh figs is an excellent treatment for warts and facial blemishes. And should you have any sort of problem with acne or spots, just mash two fresh figs into a paste and spread it on your face. Leave it on for 20 minutes, and then wash off with tepid water.
For a great natural face and body scrub, mash two figs and combine with one tablespoon of sugar, two tablespoons of fresh orange juice and several drops of olive oil. Use once a week to exfoliate dead skin cells and leave the skin healthy and glowing.
For a simple anytime face scrub, just wet the face, then massage the complexion with the inside of a fig skin. Natural enzymes in the figs help to remove dead skin cells and flaky, dry skin, leaving the complexion soft and clear.
Eating figs can also help your skin from the inside. Figs are very high in calcium, which is essential for natural collagen production. That helps to keep the skin plumped out and keep wrinkles at bay for longer.
Because figs have a high water content, they help to hydrate and moisturise the skin. Figs are also high in the antioxidants which help to mop up disease-causing free radicals. Since free radicals can also damage the skin and cause premature aging, figs are excellent for helping the skin to stay younger looking for longer.
At Naturally Mediterranean, natural skin care is our passion, so we are always pleased to pass on natural skin care tips to our customers. Clearly figs are one of nature’s best ingredients, both for skin care and for general health.
