Organic Aloe Vera and the skin ...Part III
With the skin being the largest organ of the body, it stands to reason that the skin, will, without a doubt, have many conditions to which you will have to deal with on a consistent daily basis.
Many of these skin disorders can be linked to the all to common "nutritional based disorders," as well as industrial pollution and the environment.
As you already know, many of the skin disorders affect the face in particular. These include acne, rashes, allergies and infection.
Lets not forget, some skin problems reflect your over all health. For example, remember that last bout of cold sores on your face, caused by infection with the virus that causes herpes simplex? And let not leave out the case of eczema. Both of these conditions reflect your general health ...a weakened immune system caused by access stress.
Remarkably, in a series of test conducted, stabilized Organic Aloe Vera gel proved 100% virucidal against herpes simplex virus in a span of seventy-two hours.
Other kinds of mild dermatitis also commonly occur on the face. (literally, inflammation of the skin).
Pimples, whiteheads, and blackheads on the cheeks, chin, and forehead are characteristic of acne.
Early treatment is important, especially to prevent permanent scarring.
The skin disorder of acne is well known in the teenage years ...often because of diet and hormonal changes ...again, a nutritional based disorder.
Let me share a little secret with you. If you're being treated for acne, remember, the skin takes more than a month to regenerate, so you may not see the improvements for about four-eight weeks. Be patient ...give it time to work.
A painful rash, can be caused by shingles, an infection of the nerves supplying the skin. The shingles infection is brought on by the herpes virus (the same virus that causes chickenpox). The virus may lie dormant for years before emerging when your immune system is weakened and your resistance to disease is low.
Many skin changes occur as part of the aging process. Your lifestyle habits have a lot to do with these age-related effects.
Here's the thing, it's important to be able to identify any abnormal changes in your skin that could indicate a health problem.
Some skin changes that occur with age. In addition to the loss of skin elasticity with age, patchy darkening of the skin often develop (age spots). Purple-brownish spots or patches (known as senile purpura) are also common, especially among middle-aged older women. They are caused by fragile blood vessels bleeding under the skin.
Here's what you need to know, when dealing with skin problems ...jump on the Organic Aloe Vera. Get it, both in you...and on you.
With that said, the recommendation stands. Drink plenty of clean, fresh, filtered water with two-four ounces of the "best tasting aloe vera" every day.
