(NaturalNews) The usual skin creams, lotions, or salves promoted on TV or on slick magazine ads are not effective for wrinkles, stretch marks, acne, and other skin problems. They often make matters worse, they're expensive, and some even contain carcinogenic components.

Pharmaceutical applications prescribed by dermatologists can be just as ineffective and harmful, and probably more expensive. Your skin is your largest organ. It is your immune system's first line of defense. However, some ingredients can eventually be absorbed into your bloodstream.

Using natural ingredients on your skin is a wiser first choice, if you know what is likely to work for any undesirable skin condition.

Highlighting topically applied natural skin remedies

Here are some suggestions starting from the most serious, non-impact injury troublesome skin conditions, to the least threatening.

Skin cancers (non-melanoma) and warts are reportedly cured by extracts from eggplant. UK physician Dr. Bill Cham, MD, PhD, observed Australian farmers and veterinarians curing farm animals of skin cancer with a folk remedy extracted from the Australian Devil's Apple plant.

So he took samples of Devil's Apple and studied them to determine their active ingredients. Since Devil's Apple is not easily found everywhere, he looked for an easier alternative source that contained the same phytonutrient glycocides and glycoalkaloids that were the cancer curing agents of Devil's Apple.

That turned out to be eggplant. So Dr. Cham created a cream using those compounds from eggplant to sell commercially known as BEC5. Though condemned by mainstream dermatology, which insists you avoid sunshine to escape skin cancer,

Dr. Jonathan Wright MD, founder of the holistic Tahoma Clinic in the Seattle, Washington area promotes Dr. Cham's BECS product.

You can even make your own extract of eggplant solution that some have tried with success, explained here: http://www.naturalnews.com/035471_skin_cancer_cure_eggplant.html

Herpes and several other skin irritations, including eczema, dermatitis, and tinea are easily remedied by topical applications of aloe vera gel. Aloe vera is antibacterial, antiviral, and anti-fungal.

Use the highest quality organic gel you can find, or better yet, grow your own. Pealing or cutting a leaf of the plant exposes its healing gel, which can be directly applied to infected areas.

Here are more detailed instructions for using aloe vera topically on a variety of skin problems: http://www.naturalnews.com

Tinea is a skin surface fungus that can manifest as athlete's foot, ring worm, or genital area skin irritations for women and men (jock itch). Ringworm has the red ring look and can appear almost anywhere. Other tinea contaminated areas can appear somewhat red or display a white, scaly appearance.

Tinea is a fungus that loves warm, damp areas and makes those areas itch almost incessantly. The most common topical application that is usually effective is tea tree oil. It's an indigenous folk remedy that has proven itself in Western medicine clinical trials.

Neem is another good natural topical remedy for tinea. The salve usually works well, and if you can find an ozonated or oxygenated tea tree oil or neem salve, go for it. You can get some relief from pure unpasteurized apple cider vinegar as well.

Here's what Chris Kilham, a botany professor at University of Massachusetts Amherst recommends for winkles, stretch marks, and acne:

For wrinkles, try using remedies that contain comfrey, calendula and lavender. Maca powder is also an excellent choice for helping skin remain youthful.

Stretch marks can be reduced more rapidly by massaging coconut oil and shea butter into the skin, but tamanu oil from the Pacific Islands is even better.

Acne is helped immensely by tamanu oil also. Oils or creams containing copaiba or dragon's blood are also helpful for acne.
