Holistic Skin Care

In reality, few people are truly happy with their skin. Most people will leave their skin feeling as though it is lacking certain important nutrients, or it is dirty, or too oily, or too dry. This is not because those things are physically true, but it is because feeling and looking good does not necessarily equate to healthy skin. Most people will feel better when their skin looks healthy.

Holistic skin care is a great way to use to achieve a healthier and more radiant skin. The best types of skin care products are those which contain nutrients, vitamins, and minerals. The older you get, the more wrinkles and lines appear on your skin. Using a purely natural skin care regimen is a way to prevent this from happening.

Many people are under the impression that only a surgical procedure will fix wrinkles and lines that appear on the face. This idea is promoted often by slick advertising and false hope in order to make people feel better about having lived a life of discomfort and pain. In most cases, this type of surgery will work, but it will take years of follow up care.

A truly effective skin care regimen consists of a wide variety of steps. Proper foods and vitamins are important as well. Unfortunately, many people believe that surgery and topical creams are the only things that can be done to perfection in skin care. In reality, vitamins, minerals, and topical creams that are applied directly to the skin are far more effective than these methods.

Holistic skin care takes the best of various medical treatments and applies them to the skin. If you’re thinking of obtaining any of these special skin care products, you should also be thinking about the other things that need to be done. Unfortunately, most people never balance the various things–food, exercise, and prescribed medication. By following a holistic approach to the world around us, we may be able to avoid several skin problems down the road.

Now, a fair-skinned person can have some genetic makeup that makes them more prone to skin cancer. This increased resistance to cancer can be attributed to their genetics and how they are strictly metabolized by the body. Unfortunately, you do not have any control over this. But, you can certainly do what you can to decrease your chances of developing cancer at an early age, and maybe even prevent it.

Indeed, there are solutions for just about any skin problem that anyone can worry about. Short of surgeries or hyped up creams, there are solutions for almost everything. But, solutions such as topical applications that actually reverse sun damage, moisturize and repair or even dye or bleach grey hair, are becoming more and more popular. And, they are real.

True, such treatments are not easy. They are certainly not cheap. At best, they are mildly uncomfortable. At worst, they can be downright harmful. You should always follow the instructions when using these products. You may be surprised at how little they actually accomplish.

Other options are also available. If you’re a bit more flush, you may consider a walk through the woods after dark. There are many natural substances that will give you a nice flush. Some are even edible. Honey, lavender, and even red wine are all well known for their ability to produce a lovely flush. And, they are much cheaper than the cost of temporary skin colorants.

In the end, there is really no clear answer as to whether any temporary method of skin color enhancement will be better than a more durable one such as surgery. It seems that surgery is the only option that makes sense. Short of a major economic collapse, there is little to no reason why people should risk their lives in pursuit of a diminished skin color. Products such as temporary skin colorants are simply not worth the risk that comes with it.
