What Does The Skin Need?

You probably heard the expression “As soft as a baby’s bottom”. It’s something we spent our youth taking for granted and in our adult years longing for. When we had our soft baby skin, than it wasn’t exposed to any of the harmful environments and moisture-robbing factors that damages our skin. As we get older all of our organs change and the skin is no exception to this. With age comes the problem for the skin losing its flexibility and that radiant look because it becomes thirsty for moisture. The moisture beneath the surface of the skin supplied by the body is no longer there.

What The Skin Needs

We need to give the skin the type of moisture it is looking for that actually is smoothing lines and wrinkles. Some of the things that can help are drinking more clean filtered water and increasing the level of omega 3s in your diet. With all the great things we were born with, the natural supply of nutrients declines over time which causes the cracking and creasing of the skin. When it comes to creams most of them don’t do any good because they simply sit on top of the skin. It needs something absorbent into the inner-most layers of the skin that really does its work. It is important for the nutrients being able to penetrate deep beneath the skin; only then a nutrient can begin to hydrate and to rejuvenate your skin from the inside out. The problem with most expensive creams and sera on the market is they don’t tighten, don’t reduce wrinkles, and don’t improve firmness. They may moisturize, but only the top surface of your skin, not really where they should.

Diet, Nutrients, Vitamins

To bring your skin back to its natural, radiant, healthy look is the change to different foods. A point to remember: The loading up on certain skin cleansing creams and moisturizer is not going to have a big impact unless you make some changes to your diet as well. What is important is a diet rich in bioflavonoids, nutrients that include vitamins, A, B 3, C and D as well omega 3, selenium, lutein, lycopene gallate and many more. Only then you will build the necessary groundwork and foundation for a healthy, radiant looking skin. Using the right ingredients in your diet can give valuable protection against skin disease, rashes and even skin cancer.

Vitamin D

Something more on that very important vitamin D. Clinical evidence shows vitamin D is a potent system booster and antioxidant, therefore also important for the skin. Unfortunately many people are not getting enough of this vitamin which is so crucial to our health. Vitamin D is derived from the sun when UV rays make contact with your skin. This has actually shown the opposite effect as often claimed about skin cancer, although common sense profiles. A short period of exposure to the sun at first, and gradually extent that time if you wish, is a safe way of doing so. The more skin you expose to the sun the quicker the vitamin D intake will take place. Sometimes twenty minutes every day could be enough to reach your target. Many risks of illness even skin cancer is not forthcoming if your defense of your immune system is strong which relates to a good healthy diet. According to research vitamin B 3 (Nicotinamide) may also protect those who are prone to skin cancer.

Skin Wreckers

Avoid the many skin wreckers like processed foods, sugary drinks, too much alcohol, and avoid most of the skin creams on the market which also includes sun lotions. Most creams and lotions contain chemicals and toxins which will damage the skin over time.

If you want to put a stop on aging use only creams with natural ingredients that nature has provided and has to offer. No benefit in wasting time and money on products that are only half the quality and don’t deliver what they promise. Number one priority is always the diet first. Only than if you use natural skin care products, such as anti-aging systems consisting of infusion and defense will bring that difference to your skin you are looking for.

 

Vitiligo Treatment

What is Vitiligo?

Vitiligo is a disease of the skin in which there are white patches. A disease which is difficult and long lasting, patients have a number of options to choose from, for their vitiligo treatment. Let’s take a look at the various treatments for vitiligo that are available today.

What happens in Vitiligo?

Melanin is the pigment that is responsible for our skin colour. In Vitiligo, the skin cells that produce this pigment either die or are unable to secrete this melanin. Factors like heredity, exposure to chemicals, stress, sunburn and one’s own immunity attacking and destroying the skin cells are thought to be responsible.

Thus, the conventional treatment for vitiligo aims at either suppressing the erroneous immune system or at bringing colour back to the white patch.

What are the Conventional Medicines for Vitiligo Treatment?

Corticosteroid creams and creams having drugs called tacrolimus or pimecrolimus aim to suppress the immunity. Thus it intends to prevent the immunity from attacking one’s own skin cells.

Light therapy involves the application of UV rays on the skin, sometimes in combination with medications to enhance light sensitivity.

Grafting a patch of normal skin over the white patch and tattooing are other options that aim to restore colour in a specific patch.

What does Homoeopathy offer for Vitiligo treatment?

Homoeopathic treatment for vitiligo considers the fact that Vitiligo tends to progress as a disease. Thus, taking care of a single patch and doing nothing for the underlying immunity will not do any good to control the appearance of a new patch elsewhere. Hence, Homoeopathy tries to correct the immunity and thus stimulates the body’s skin cells to produce the pigment melanin naturally.

Homoeopathic treatment of Vitiligo also attempts to heal by correcting the after-effects of triggering factors like stress, chemical exposure and hormonal imbalance of the thyroid gland.

How can Homoeopathic treatment help my Vitiligo?

Homoeopathy provides a safe solution without any of the side-effects that are seen with long term conventional treatment. We, at Life Force Homoeopathy, do not promise miraculous, permanent and quick cures for all cases of Vitiligo.
