Organic Aloe Vera and the skin.

I've been writing articles about Organic Aloe Vera and the "best tasting aloe vera" for several months now and the feedback has been very interesting, to say the least.

Today, I was asked if I could switch gears a little ...I was asked to write a series of articles about the benefits of Organic Aloe Vera and the skin.

My response was yes, I would. However, the topic of the skin is so huge that I will have to take it piece by piece, problem by problem and recommendation by recommendation.

But, before we jump into the details of the skin, for starters, lets list a few of the more common skin problems:
  • Acne
  • age spots
  • athlete's foot
  • burns, boils
  • bruises
  • cold sores
  • candidiasis
  • dermatitis
  • dry skin
  • fungus infections
  • hives
  • herpesvirus
  • insect bites
  • lupus
  • leg ulcers
  • oily skin
  • psoriasis
  • rosacea
  • ring worm
  • scabies
  • sebaceous cyst
  • seborrhea
  • skin rash
  • skin cancer
  • sunburn
  • shingles
  • warts
  • wrinkling of the skin
...now, that's just for starters!!

Right now you're wondering, where in the heck do we begin?

So, lets start here ...the skin is your body's largest organ and it's made up of three major layers.

The outer layer (epidermis), the middle layer (dermis), and the inner layer (hypodermis).

Your skin serves as the protective covering to protect the body from all of the foreign substances and helps in cooling and maintaining a proper temperature for the body.

Your skin is subject to many environmental conditions such as:
  • changing colors
  • cracking
  • dryness
  • flaking, itching
  • redness
  • roughness
  • scaling
  • thickening
  • and the one condition we most want to prevent ...aging!!

Your skin has many reactions. To list a few:
  • allergies
  • insect bites
  • plants
  • foods
  • weather
  • drugs
  • alcohol
  • tobacco

Here's an astonishing consideration. Believe it or not, 75 percent of all skin rashes in children are caused by food allergies ...especially to:
  • chocolate
  • eggs
  • peanuts
  • milk
  • dairy products
  • wheat (cereal)
  • fish
  • chicken
  • pork
  • beef

These rashes that show up as food allergies are usually pink to reddish in color with some swelling and itching involved.

Interestingly enough, through the time tested applications of the Aloe Vera cremes, gels, liniments and lotions of the Organic Stabilized Aloe Vera, it has proven itself over and over again, to aid in the healing benefits of the many skin problems mentioned in this first article of Organic Aloe Vera and the skin.

My recommendation stands...drink plenty of clean, fresh, filtered water with two-four ounces of Organic Aloe Vera every day...along with the topical application of creme or gel.

As always ...know you supplier.
