Miami Facial: Herbs and Supplements That Are Good for Your Skin

Besides eating healthy, preferably organic food, getting plenty of sleep, exercising and drinking lots of water, there are natural remedies easily available to us to help our largest organ (our skin) remain radiant and vibrant.  Here are just a few that are good for most of us.  (You should first check with your primary care doctor or pharmacist if you are taking prescription medications for possible interactions.)

BURDOCK:  Antibacterial and antifungal.  It helps balance hormones and is a strong liver purifier, aids in neutralizing or eliminating toxins from the body, supports kidneys as they filter acids from the bloodstream to purify blood.  Addresses problematic skin conditions such as acne and psoriasis.

TURMURIC:  Might be the best inflammation-fighting compound for treating rosacea and inflamed acne.  Also helps aid digestion and prevents cancer.  Helps to prevent Alzheimer’s.

ASHWAGANDHA:  Anti-inflammatory, anti-tumor, anti-stress, anti-oxidant, boosts your immune system and has skin rejuvenating properties.

LICORICE:  Aids adrenal glands, digestion and detoxification, normalizes hormones, has anti-inflammatory action, protects the liver.  May reduce immune hyperactivation caused by shock to the nervous system.  Has remarkable rejuvenating effects on cells.  Anti-cancer, antibiotic, wonderful anti-oxidant.  Helps to soothe throat and coughing.

SEA BUCKTHORN:  This supplement significantly supports the matrix of collagen and elastin that maintains the skin’s supple and youthful appearance. It has a natural plumping action, and is excellent for all skin types. Not only is it good for your skin, but Dr. Oz recommends it for healthy teeth and gums, reduces inflammation, fights dry eyes, and all mucous membranes. It is availalable in capsules and in creams at your local healthfood store or online. I have been taking it for the past few months and see a definite improvement.  My friend swears it has helped her dry eyes!

You can google any of this information and educate yourself even more.  Remember that each of us is responsible for our own health and well being.  Whenever possible, I would rather use natural, organic products before resorting to pharmaceutical medicines.  Let’s remember, though, that doctor prescribed medicines have also cured and  saved many lives.      Keep yourself informed of what is best for you.
