Today on OiB I will discuss the different benefits of Ginger that are ready to be availed for the
skin even though it has lots of cooking and other health benefits too. For all those people who
have been waiting for my pick on ginger’s benefits for skin, this is the best way and the right

Ginger has lots of benefits that have been discovered just through the effective use of
Ayurveda. It is an herb that is native to China and India. It is not even an herb but a root in
actual. The numerous ginger benefits for skin are given as follows

 

 Burn Support
It is surprising to know that the natural situation of the skin is regained if ginger is applied directly to the place where the burn has taken place. It also helps to reduce the pain for the burn. Besides rubbing a fresh ginger slice, one can also apply fresh ginger juice for the same effect. If it is applied twice or thrice a day, it can help to remove different scars too. This takes effect in 6 to 12 weeks while the ginger slice should be fresh every time you apply it.

 Anti-Aging
Ginger has more than 40 antioxidants in it. This is why it greatly helps in anti-aging. The
toxins are flushed out due to which the body circulation of the blood is improved. This in
turn helps to have improvement in the skin appearance because it provides more
nutrients to the skin. They also prevent damage from different free radicals which is
why the youth of the skin is not lost. The elasticity and firmness is maintained and aging
is slowed down.

 Acne and Spots
Acne and spots or different related blemishes are more like a curse to many people.Ginger can work wonders here. Ginger is a very powerful antiseptic and cleansing agent. It helps to keep the skin clear as well as free of any residues. As a result, the skin is invigorated and the blemishes are also lessened. Acne-causing bacteria is also killed by ginger which is why it is also known as the best natural acne-fighting weapon of all. This way the rate of acne formation is also minimized.

 White Scars
Hyperpigmentation can also be solved with the help of ginger. The white spots are now no more of a problem at all. The skin becomes lighter or white at some places in comparison to other patches of the skin. The use of ginger reduces the appearance of this pigmentation. If you apply a fresh slice of ginger to your skin and leave it on for some time, then the results can be seen in just 2 weeks. If you also have any other ginger benefits make sure you tell me in the comments below too.

Lanolin – is it worth it being in your Skincare Products?

Today on OiB I will be discussing Lanolin; what it actually is, its uses and drawbacks. On the surface, Lanolin looks pretty effective and safe to use as it softens and protects your skin by quickly absorbing into your skin without clogging any pores. Oh, and no animals are hurt in the harvest of Lanolin!

  • What is Lanolin?

In simple English, Lanolin is the wax derived from a sheep’s wool, after the sheep has been shorn. The sheep is not hurt in this process but hey, no one ever enjoys their fur being cut off. But, the people responsible for this (cutting the fur off) specialize in this field. They do this very promptly and within minutes the sheep is back in its herd.

The clipped wool is covered with wool fat. Which is a natural pale-yellow, and water resistant wax. The purpose of this is to ensure the sheep stays dry and healthy. This wool fat is extracted by boiling the wool. This is called crude lanolin.

  • Refining: Essential for Safe Use

After the wax has been properly extracted, the next step is to refine this wax and remove any impurities it may contain. A recent documentary made by PBS on Lanolin showed them (PBS) purifying the wax by mixing it water and olive oil. This enabled the impurity to dissolve into the water, leaving only the off-white wax which can then be easily gathered.

Commercially, the process of purifying lanolin is pretty different. The process has many stages and is usually done in a sterile environment. This refining process is necessary to ensure the safety of using Lanolin. Lanolin can either be refined crudely or refined to a medical level, all this depends on the manufacturer and the demand. However, crude lanolin will still have some impurities whereas the medical grade lanolin is the purest and can be used by nursing mothers for use on cracked nipples.

  • So, Why the Bad Image?

Even with all the benefits of Lanolin, you must be wondering that why it neither is nor mainstream neither getting the recognition it deserves? Well, the answer is quite simple.

You see that Lanolin has two major problems:

Even if it is refined to cosmetic grade. It will still contain impurities and there’s a high chance that they could be allergens. So if you’re prone to allergic reactions you will suffer from allergy. In this case, it is worth mentioning that Lanolin itself isn’t allergic but the impurities in Lanolin that weren’t totally finished during the refinement process cause an allergic reaction. Furthermore, to whiten the color some manufacturers use chemical bleach. Also, the finished product is mixed with vegetable oils or soft paraffin’s which is derived from other sources. These impurities could have some additives.
Not all, but some Lanolin can be polluted by DDT, dieldrin, lindane and other harmful pesticides. It is highly likely that these chemicals could get into our skincare products because the sheep could be eating food that has been specially treated with these or other pesticides.

Natural Lip Balm DIY recipe

Homemade Hippie Lip Balm

Ingredients

  • 1 tsp coconut oil
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp lanolin
  • 1 tsp shea butter
  • 1 tsp honey
  • 1 tsp beeswax pastilles

Method

I put the oils and beeswax in a small metal bowl and heated on the stove top until they were all melted together. I removed the bowl from the heat and stirred in the honey. I used a small funnel and poured it into empty lip balm containers that I had been saving.

It filled 4 of them (the tube type) with some left over! I left it sitting on the kitchen counter, and by the time I threw the dishes in the dishwasher it was set up and solid and ready to use. I made it “un-girly’ enough that Rob and I can both use it.

  • How to ensure the safety of Your Lanolin:

The two problems I mentioned above can easily be solved if you buy your Lanolin from a well-established company; which can be trusted, and has known presence – with proper contact details and labeling on the product. To be 100% sure be certain that pure grade, fine grade, highly refined, or medical grade is mentioned on the label. If you have any confusion regarding this, get in touch with the company and ask them about the grade. Remember, the best Lanolin is one that is free from any impure particles or harmful chemicals.

As a responsible citizen and human, it is your responsibility to check that any skin care product you buy has not been tested on animals.

Lastly, please note that Lanolin itself isn’t going to cause any allergic reactions. But, just to be on the safe side you should always consult your doctor before applying anything that will be absorbed by your body and as always feel free to comment your thoughts about Lanolin and share any experience(s) which will be helpful to our readers.
