This article discusses the effects that vitamin D has, the various sources and also the symptoms to look out for when you are low in this essential vitamin.   The shortage of sun during the winter can deplete our vitamin D supply — vital to absorbing calcium — and send our moods plummeting. A tropical vacation to soak up some rays would be a quick fix, but if you don’t have the time or resources, there are other ways to replenish this important nutrient. How do you know whether you are suffering from insufficient levels? Vadeboncoeur says symptoms include skin conditions such as psoriasis, acne and eczema; and lower mood levels, also known as the winter blues or seasonal affective disorder (SAD). View the original article here   This is a useful article that gives a few examples of foods that you eat that are high in vitamin D. We particularly liked the advice on using a liquid vitamin D supplement as opposed to tablet form, as this is absorbed more effectively by the body.

We know through our own research on proactiv, that it has had mediocre reviews and results with many people complaining of severe drying of skin and pain.   If you are considering proactive as your primary acne treatment, the most common question would be does proactive really work. Proactive like any other acne treatments treat acne by removing dirt and oil from the skin and kills the acne causing bacteria.

Read the original article here   Although we do not recommend using such acne treatments, they may help with the symptoms initially to help reduce the swelling, redness and itching. That said, a much better way is to deal with the internal cause and eating a well balanced diet.

Traditional Acne Treatments vs. Naturopathic Acne Treatments! /naturopathic-acne-treatments/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=naturopathic-acne-treatments /naturopathic-acne-treatments/#comments Mon, 26 Mar 2012 08:27:38 +0000 Editorial Team /?p=1775 In this article you will read about the traditional treatments that are typically used to treat acne that are not so effective at helping to get rid of the acne or other skin conditions. It then goes in to detailing better methods that can be used to get rid of acne. Yes there is in fact a better way which will actually get rid of your acne once and for all.   I doubt anybody needs me to go into detail about what acne is. Unfortunately it strikes right when we’re most emotionally vulnerable (during adolescence), although some people struggle with it well into adult hood. Even more unfortunate, resistant cases are notoriously difficult to treat, because root causes can be so diverse and multifaceted. Causes: Certain drugs can cause acne, including steroids and certain birth control pills, among others. Hormone fluctuations are frequently the culprit as well, of course, hence the correlation with puberty. Deficiency in essential fatty acids (like O3 and O6) can contribute too, as can food sensitivities. (For more explanations, see Naturopathic Treatments, below.) Read the full article here   Naturopathic treatments are a much better and safer way to combat many types of skin conditions and not just acne alone. Cleaning and cleansing you whole internal system of toxins and improving your diet will get you on that path to becoming free of acne, eczema, urticaria, psoriasis or any other skin condition that you may have.

12 Favourite Skin Nourishing Oils /skin-nourishing-oils/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=skin-nourishing-oils /skin-nourishing-oils/#comments Wed, 21 Mar 2012 19:37:46 +0000 Editorial Team /?p=1664 This feature is going to give you a list of natural oils that you can use that will help with a variety of body locations including your face and skin. Applying natural oil such as coconut oil, almond oil which we love, is great for keeping the skin moisturised and supple as will also help with internal issues as the skin absorbs what you apply back into your body.     Rubbing oil on your face? Sounds like an invitation for disaster. But these natural, oil-based products have taught us that we have a misconception about the substance; we think we need to get rid of it, when in reality, the more you remove, the harder your skin works to replace it, thereby creating even more oiliness. (It’s an underminer like that.) “Like cures like, so a little bit of a healthy, plant-based oil on the skin helps the skin stay balanced,” Dr. Hauschka Skin Care CEO Mirran Raphaely told “The right amount signals to oil glands that they can stop producing. It may sound counter-intuitive, but once you try this method, you’ll never go back.” We hunted down the best nourishing oils on the market — for all areas of the body — and recommended our top picks: View the original article here   This is an interesting list of oils for the body including hair and nails besides skin. One oil I use that was surprisingly not listed is coconut oil which has a massive amount of health benefits and is great for keeping the skin looking healthy and supple. What do you think of the list and what oils do you use for your skin?
