How to have healthy skin?

The key to maintaining skin health is by supporting the protein components of connective tissues – elastin, collagen and proteoglycans.

The whole process of skin regeneration must be enhanced from within rather than spending excessive resources on external skin care products (though it helps as long as we don’t use excessive chemical based products). The use of steroids to heal skin rashes and eczema will speed up the aging process.

Emblica officinalis as in Phytolec promotes collagen synthesis. Thus it is an effective herb for skin health and bone strength. This can be enhanced by nutrients that can promote energy to regenerate and repair tissues such as Coenzyme forte and alpha Lipoic acid as in SL Alpha Lipoic Acid. These nutrients together with galangal may protect us from heart attacks and stroke.

Assimilation of proteins and nutrients need to be enhanced with bitters such as vermouth elixir and bertram. Bertram has anti-candida, anti-fungus, anti-bacteria and immune enhancing properties. It promotes good blood circulation, which is necessary for skin health.

In addition, herbs such as nettle as in the formulation Phytocel tea cleanse the blood of toxins and provides nutrients such as calcium, potassium, magnesium and silica.

Oil your face and body regularly with natural oils such as virgin coconut, St John’s wort, avocado and calendula.
