3 Effective Natural Remedies For Keratosis Pilaris & Other Problematic Skin Issues
Posted on February 04 2019
Skin problems like stretch marks, eczema, psoriasis, and keratosis pilaris are a lot more common that you may realize. If you’re like most people, you’ve likely tried countless products to no avail, or maybe even ended up in a dermatologists office at some point.
No matter what it is you’re dealing with, just know that there is natural way to prevent, manage, and perhaps even get rid of it altogether.
With that said, in this article we’re going to take a look at three of the most effective methods of healing problematic skin naturally!
Eat to nourish your skin inside out
Did you know that what you eat and drink is linked to the condition of your skin?
Think about it… when you indulge in a few too many sweet things, you likely end up with a zit or two. Most of us do!
Yet, it’s not very common to hear of someone eating nourishing foods who ends up with a host of skin issues.
Without a healthy body on the inside, the products you use on the outside have little chance of actually working. If this sounds like you, it’s never too late to make a change. Rather than focusing on specific foods, making a lifestyle change is the best thing you can do.
Start to include more leafy greens, fatty fish (salmon, sardines, tuna), legumes, and whole grains into your diet, while upping your intake of water.
Here are 5 nutrient packed recipes you can try to eat your way to healthy skin. If you’re still completely lost, don’t be afraid to reach out to a nutritionist for help.
Avoid common skin problem “triggers”
Once you’ve got the nutrition down, it’s time to take stock of what’s truly lurking in the products you’re using. If you’re still playing skincare roulette with drugstore skin and bodycare, chances are you’re going to be applying any number of the following skin problem “triggers” to your skin:
- GMO ingredients
- Artificial colors
- Phthalates (fragrance)
If you suffer from any skin issue, these additives are just going to make them worse. There’s no other way of saying it! From skin rashes caused by artificial colors, to hormone disruption and allergic dermatitis caused by phthalates and parabens… it’s just not worth it.
Why are they used in skin and bodycare in the first place you may wonder?
It’s quite simple… they’re cheap ways to extend the shelf life of products! Which means, the companies using them get to produce more products at a much lower price, all at the expense of the you, the very consumer trusting them to follow through on the claims they make.
Best thing you can do? Avoid these ingredients/triggers altogether.
Apply all natural products for prevention, maintenance, and hydration
You’ve heard that saying, “prevention is better than cure,” and it certainly rings true when it comes to avoiding common skin problems.
In addition to maintaining a healthy lifestyle, and removing toxic triggers, there’s no better way to prevent these problems from occurring in the first place than by using all natural products on your body.
Our range of skin and bodycare products are all formulated to keep your skin nourished and you won’t find any of the triggers listed above!
If you’re not sure where to start, why not give our Clarity Exfoliating Sugar Scrub or Flawsome Cellulite Reducing Coffee Scrub a try, followed by our Fearless Body Butter. This a thick and creamy, skin deep moisturizer, available in two sensual scents; luminous and luna. For those with even the most sensitive skin, don’t worry we have you covered with our unscented option as well!
Not to mention, our Fearless Body Butter has been receiving raved reviews from our customers who seem to have tried everything for their skin issues before with no luck! Heather recently wrote in, “I’ve had keratosis pilaris my entire life and have tried absolutely everything, including medical grade acids to help it go away and nothing has ever really helped. But just using your product has made it almost completely go away and it hasn’t even been a month! My skin is SO soft! *yay* :)”
