Problem: Dry skin
Rub the inside of an avocado skin all over clean face and let sit for twenty minutes to moisturize and nourish dry skin. Apply evening primrose oil topically. Use a bag of oatmeal as a wash cloth.
Take a cool bath with one-quarter cup of baking soda or apply it with a compress. Apply aloe
vera. Make a compress of skim milk and oatmeal and apply. Apply witch hazel with a cotton
ball. Apply diluted essential oil of lavender. Put your moisturizer in the refrigerator before
applying. Drink lots of water to counteract the drying effects.
If your acne is hormone related, primrose and wheat germ taken internally will help balance
hormone production. Vitamin E mixed with the herbs lily and comfrey can be applied to heal
scarring after inflammation is gone. Clean your skin with milk and yogurt. Take bee propolis
internally and externally. Acne sufferers often need additional chromium, selenium, magnesium, and zinc. Many people swear by lecithin, taking two tablespoons of the granules in apple juice or five capsules per day. It is said to emulsify and help break down fatty globules in the body. Applying diluted lemon juice, which is antiseptic, cleansing, and has a high pH.

mineral that has been linked to respiratory damage.
3. Dibutyl phthalate – Found in nail polish and moisturizers, this hormone-disrupting
chemical accumulates in the body’s fatty tissue and can cause reproductive damage.
4. Formaldehyde-releasing preservatives – Because formaldehyde is a suspected carcinogen
that can also cause irritation and allergic reactions, avoid preservatives such as DMDM
hydantoin, quaternium-15, and diazonlidnyl urea, which release formaldehyde as they
5. Parabens – Butyl-, ethyl-, methyl-, and propyl-parabens mimic estrogen and may result in
reproductive damage, according to recent studies.
You may end up changing your lifestyle. You can find your self hanging out more often at the
health food store, juice bars, organic food shops and vegetarian restaurants.
