By Huff: (NaturalNews) Most topical acne products on the market today are nothing more than cheap blends of toxic, skin-drying chemicals that both fail to address the root causes of acne and promote rapid aging. But a revolutionary new product line developed by a sharp young man with a family legacy of natural healing offers a pure and highly effective acne treatment alternative that won't dry out your skin and won't pollute your body with toxic chemicals.
By Sofiya:(NaturalNews) The concept of superfoods emerged on the radar of health and beauty experts just a few short years ago. Remarkably, in that brief period the hidden benefits of several common food products came to light. Coupled with scientific research and the trend toward organic foods, the health benefits of foods such as kale, blueberries, walnuts, salmon, avocados and mulberries have made them immensely popular.
By Padilla:(NaturalNews) The skin is the body's largest organ. It's constantly eliminating toxins via perspiration through every single pore on the body. Every now and then, the burden of removing toxins can become too much for the skin, and trouble manifests itself in the form of pimples, acne, discolorations and other skin issues. Most individuals turn to makeup to cover up the unsightly marks, but sometimes that only worsens the issue. Others pick at the problem to see if they can make it go away; this never works and it only serves to irritate the tissue further.
Almost 85 percent of people experience acne within the course of a lifetime, according to the American Academy of Dermatology, (1) so it's a very common problem. Many people turn to over-the-counter acne products or prescription drugs for this condition. But many of these products have ingredients that can actually worsen the skin and cause other side effects. Instead, try our natural home remedies for acne that are gentler on the skin and only use natural ingredients you probably already have in your home.
You hear it all the time from skin care companies and the slogans for their products: "Lock in the moisture!" Did you know that you are actually locking in toxins with toxins? Yes, your body is trying to perspire and sweat out the toxins, and breathe. And just what toxins are we talking about that are trying to get out? Don't get me started. What is it about all petroleum-based products that you should know? What about baby oils and baby lotions? What's locking in toxins all day, every day, and what goes into the manufacture of most lotions, personal care products and everything that drives the skin cancer industry?
The borage plant is from the Boraginaceae family, and it mainly grows in the Mediterranean region, although it's also cultivated in Europe and the United States. Apparently, the Romans would drink borage tea combined with wine before going to battle, as they believed that it would give them inner strength. Its leaves are edible, and in Italy you'll sometimes find it as a side dish, but it's specifically when transformed into borage oil that it can work wonders for your health.
Fran Kerr, author of Clear Skin for Life and How to Heal from Acne Naturally, has been a fan of jojoba oil for years. "I still do love it. I'm a massive fan of it, but I have a new favorite now," she admits. "It's organic hemp seed oil. I am in love with hemp seed oil as a cleanser and moisturizer."
In the U.S., manufacturers are allowed to use virtually any chemical they want in their skin care and other personal care products. Often, their products are called ‘natural’ but still contain toxic chemicals. Their goal is to generate sales, not to protect your health. As a result, the chemicals they choose may be expedient for them but detrimental to your health and life. So, how can you protect yourself? Ultimately, your health is your responsibility. Rather than trust a product manufacturer, do your own research to make sure that your skin care products are truly safe.
