Skin Conditions and Nutrition

Skin Conditions and Nutrition

Nutrition is very important when it comes to maintaining your skin and getting rid of that annoying skin conditions such as acne. This feature goes into the importance of why nutritions plays an important role in keeping our skin looking great and getting that healthy glow.   At one point or another in our lives we have all suffered from the embarrassing blemish or skin rash. Our skin is our body’s largest organ and allowing toxins to exit through it is a way our bodies fight disease. This is why fever accompanies almost any illness. Our body will increase its core temperature and push the toxins out by causing sweat. Toxins can come in the form of bacteria and viruses, but they can also be caused by foods that are poorly digested. When undigestable food particles enter our bloodstream our body will launch an immune attack on the foreign particle. This leads to us being in a state of inflammation. This is where we can develop hives, acne, and atopic dermatitis. Milk allergies tend to be a major culprit of skin problems as well as grains, legumes, and soy.

Acne and Traditional Chinese Medicine

Acne and Traditional Chinese Medicine

If you have ever tried Chinese herbal medicine you will know that it can help with a variety of conditions. This article talks about the causes of acne and how it can be treated with herbs and acupuncture which has been proven to very effective.   According to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) there are several different types of Acne. It is not simply a single disease that requires a uniform treatment. Two major factors are taken into consideration: one is the person’s body type or constitution, and the other includes all of the different external influences which affect the development of the disorder such as diet, environment, climate, life-style, mental and emotional state and medications. Each individual’s body has different strengths and weaknesses and different tendencies towards imbalance. Often two people will react in completely different ways to the same thing, e.g. eating a bar of chocolate or being exposed to hot, humid conditions such as we have in Spain. Therefore the TCM practitioner aims to understand the root of the problem (which is the individual’s basic constitutional make-up) as well as to distinguish which particular type of Acne the patient has. Get all the details about Chinese medicine for acne here   Like many natural treatments that aim to treat the cause of acne, Chinese medicine is also based on the same theory. This is good to hear as anything that is happening on the skin is a sign of something wrong on the inside. You don’t just treat the symptoms of acne you also must find and treat the cause.

Toothpaste For Spots

Can Using Toothpaste For Spots Really Help?

It has been a long held belief that putting a dab of toothpaste on a pimple will eliminate the spot. But is this a myth and could ingredients in the toothpaste cause you to get more spots?   What toothpaste can cause, however, is irritation or allergic reactions in people with certain sensitivities, resulting in rashy bumps around the mouth or, perhaps, rosacea, a chronic condition of redness and skin sores that might be confused with traditional acne, said Dr. Richard Gallo, chair of the dermatology department at the University of California at San Diego. “One of the instructions we give to patients with rosacea is to think about the toothpaste you’re using,” Gallo said. People can be allergic to just about anything, but toothpaste’s mint and cinnamon flavorings, which can include the allergens balsam of Peru, cinnamic aldehyde and peppermint and spearmint flavors, are major culprits in skin reactions, Gallo said. Read all about it right here   What was shocking for us to read was that over 90% of toothpastes on the shelves do not even list all their ingredients. what was even more shocking was that most toothpastes contain SLS, which is a foaming agent that is used in many household good such as washing detergents. This alone can cause skin corrosion and irritation. Should it really be in grooming products? Click To Read More »
