Healthy Skin

A great looking skin must include some POSITIVE reference to the sun. Your skin craves the bio-photons of light that only the sun's nourishing energy can provide. That's why I get out in it whenever I can and recommend others do the same to avoid skin problems and ' illumination'. Recently, I got chatting and the woman said to me, "You have such great skin"! I was naturally, very flattered and it got me thinking.... Most people don't realize that their SKIN is the largest organ of their body and yet it's one of the most mis-treated.   Your SKIN is the very "outer layer" of who you are. Not only is your skin exposed to outside forces every single day, most people don't realize that it's the most vital organ for eliminating toxins...so you need to take care of it as best you can. One of the "controllable" aspects of skin care revolves around what we actually choose to put ON our skin on a daily basis. For many, a new moisturizer, body scrub, lip balm or body spray makes them look and feel good - but most of us give no thought to what's actually in those products, not realizing that they're actually adding toxicity into the body. The history of cosmetics spans at least 6,000 years of human history and almost every society on earth uses them in some form - women AND men! It's freaky to know that there are more than 10,000 ingredients approved for use in cosmetics and personal care items but more than 90% have never been tested for their effects on human health.And of the chemicals that have been tested, many have been linked to a number of health problems from allergies and skin sensitivity to more serious hormonal disturbances, fertility problems and even cancer.  And ladies? Well, it's estimated that the average woman’s daily grooming and make-up routine results in a shocking 515 different synthetic chemicals on her body every single day.

If you can’t recognize the ingredients, don’t put it IN or ON your body

So what can we do?  The answer is simple.  By using plant based oils, vegetable extracts and salts from nature you can have everything you need to have beautiful, soft, healthy looking skin. Those that know me, know that one of my favorite mantras is this: If you can't eat it, don't put it on your skin. It really is amazing how much better you actually feel when you go for simple plant-based products rather than the expensive, chemical-laden ones. I really wanted people to experience for themselves just awesome wholesome, nature-made products .  The best way to treat unhealthy skin You’ve probably heard me say it before, but it’s important that you get this…  Your skin is Cytophylactic, meaning it absorbs and dumps waste more than any other organ in your body.
If you’re unhealthy on the inside, it will eventually show up on the outside…and one of the surest indicators that someone needs to ‘clean house’ is when they have unhealthy and blemished skin. One of the most common dis-eases that shows up on the skin, as a result of excess internal plaque, is called PsoriasisThese blemishes that appear are often raised, red in color and very itchy. But soon enough, these raised patches turn white with the dead cells flaking off. Poor skin conditions often rear their ugly head in winter, Psoriasis usually goes through seasonal cycles of flare-ups and remission – but don’t let that fool you. The worst thing you can do is apply chemical topical creams to suppress the condition because you will pay for it down the road. The best thing you can do is to read the signs and support the healing, by doing the right things and embracing natural, non-toxic remedies. Here’s what I recommend for conditions like Eczma, Psoriasis and scaly, itchy skin:
  1. Get your body into the Sun! 95% of Psoriasis sufferers improve or even remit the condition by exposing the effected areas to regular dose of sunshine. Rub cold-pressed coconut oil on before exposure;
  2. Get into the ocean or a natural SALT bath! Soaking your skin in the ocean or a warm, mineral rich bath salt is one of the most healing things you can do to detoxify for your skin;
  3. Avoid Any Chemicals in your Food! scary7  As consumers, we want to believe that food manufacturers have our best interest at heart, but the truth is, as we learn more about the foods in the grocery store, we realize these companies are more concerned with taste and shelf life than with our overall health. Thousands of chemicals are used to make our food taste better, look better, and last longer, but most of these food additives, preservatives, and coloring are synthetic. Even the term “natural food” – once used to describe whole fruits and vegetables and unrefined grains – has now been expanded to include packaged, processed foods, many of which contain a wide array of chemicals. Read every label on processed food , don't buy, if you don't know what are chemical or scientific names mean ;
  4. Eat a clean 50% raw plant diet! Load up on plenty of fruits and vegetables ;
  5. Eat more Plant Oils! Be sure to include ONE Tablespoon of Extra Virgin Avocado Oil on a salad each day;
  6. Steer clear of toxic skin care products! I have a philosophy when it comes to skin care, 'if you can't eat it don't put it on your skin'. That's why we can handcraft a simple range of products  using principles of alchemy not chemistry;
  7. Add extra Dietary Fiber! Colonic health is critical to the health of your skin and overall body. When transitioning to a cleaner diet, you may need to add some extra fiber like Flax, Sesame  Seeds or Psyllium Husk  to help get waste out of your body. Add a teaspoon of these fibers in the morning to warm water or fresh squeezed juice;
A few final tips, drink plenty of good qulaty water each day to hydrate your body and aid the elimination of waste, avoid eating animal fat and exercise regularly (particularly outside in the fresh air) to work your body into a light sweat whenever you can. All of these things will accelerate the release of built up toxins and get you on the path to having beautiful, healthy skin.

abfaccbc The Harmful effects of "micro-beads" and what you should be using instead for exfoliating your face and body on a regular basis. "Micro-beads" are tiny, spherical particles (smaller than 1 millimeter, about the size of a pinhead) made of plastic that are common in many exfoliates and body scrubs on the market today. The problem is they're loaded with chemicals and not ideally suited to taking care of your largest (and one of the most vital) organs of 'your house'...your skin! Your skin is "cytophylactic", meaning that it rapidly absorbs whatever you put on it to either enhance or hinder the regeneration of healthy, new skin cells. To keep your skin feeling and looking young and vital, it's important to support the regeneration of new skin cells with regular exfoliation. Lightly scrubbing the skin with a natural loofah sponge or brush is a great way to go provided that you're using non-toxic soaps to cleanse your pores. I prefer using a mix of good nature-made salts, like Himalayan , combined with plant oils like Almond or Mustard and Lemon or Orange Juice (for fragrance and therapeutic benefit). Commercial soaps and cleansing agents that contain chemicals will strip your skin of natural oil and encourage dryness and flakiness. Over time and distance, this will cause your skin to become less efficient at eliminating natural waste (through perspiration), and will lead to poor skin conditions and even reactions like, "seborrhea" because your skin glands will be working overtime to compensate for the loss of natural oils caused by chemicals.  Nothing beats nature-made salt for healing and regenerating your skin! That's why the worst cases of acne and psoriasis can be healed rapidly by soaking in the ocean, light exfoliation with salt, applying a little cold pressed Coconut  or Avocado Oil and then getting some regular exposure to sunshine. Salt is incredible because it removes dead skin cells and helps clear dirt from your pores. Make your own salt scrub exfoliate at home using the ingredients I've mentioned above  and make it part of your weekly routine. If you'd prefer not to use a salt exfoliate on your face, here are some other natural, non-toxic suggestions I'd recommend: Use a clay or mud mask in order to clear away excess oil. Try blending together one teaspoon of green or blue clay powder, a drop of water and one teaspoon of raw honey and then apply the mixture to your face, avoiding the eye area. Make sure to leave it on for around 15 minutes and rinse well with warm water. Continue this at least once a week or more. Another important tip to help cleanse and release toxins from below the surface layers of your skin, is to get in a 'hot box for face' or sauna once a week and do exfoliating after that. Just be sure to avoid using products and soaps that contain chemicals and your skin will look and feel brighter - and together with a clean diet - you'll avoid skin related ailments and conditions.
