We called on the expertise of Melinda Joy Miller, author of "Shamanic Gardening: Timeless Techniques for the Modern Sustainable Garden" and Janice Cox, author of "Natural Beauty for All Seasons: 250 Simple Recipes and Gift Giving Ideas for Year-Round Beauty". They share recipes for skin and eye remedies that'll help clear blemishes and zap zits; ones that'll help soothe facial irritation, bring pH balance to the skin, calm insect bites and sunburns, and soothe red, itchy skin; and ones that rejuvenate and condition tired-looking eyes.
In case you weren't blessed with a green thumb, Miller has a tip for you: "The best time of day to pick herbs or flowers is in the early morning just as the sun is coming up. The energy of the day is very high then and the plant is at a rested, healed-by-the-dew state." On the other hand, if you're not a morning person or don't have a garden, you can improvise by picking them up at your local market at your leisure.
And now, here are the at-home fixes for skin care emergencies.
