Skin Conditions and Systemic
The effects of chronic or acute inflammation on the skin and to your organs whether it is acute or chronic can make the difference between being healthy, and well, or lead to conditions that can alter skin’s health, and both physical and mental well-being.
Inflammation of the organs; skin for instance, can lead to conditions such as acne, psoriasis, eczema dermatitis, sebaceous cysts, rosacea, and potentially cancer. It is important to reduce inflammation and seek products that contain effective anti-inflammatory agents that also support the Immune system. Within the Skin 2 Skin™ Care formulations we have taken great consideration of precisely formulating each product to maximum benefit. Ken Simpson, through knowledge and experience, as well as continuous testing and research has ensured that Skin 2 Skin Care’s key ingredients in combination work to address and reduce inflammation. These are: Green and White tea, Ginger, Cucumber, Aloe Vera, and Pomegranate in such products as Oatmeal & Pomegranate Face Scrub™, Revitalizing Eye Gel™, and others to improve function, health, chronic and acute inflammation, control acne and bacteria AND combined with anti-oxidants. To address inflammatory skin conditions far too often topical corticosteroids are “prescribed” and recommended, a caution is that regular use can result in irreparable skin thinning. It is better to naturally address “at source” or at cause, than to look for a not so quick, “fix.”
The skin is not the only organ where inflammation can cause damage and effect both short-term and long-term wellness. Inflammation to internal organs is also something of which we should be proactively aware and aim to resolve and rectify. Examples of diseases and conditions with chronic inflammation include: asthma, chronic peptic ulcer, tuberculosis, rheumatoid arthritis, chronic periodontitis, ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease, chronic sinusitis, and chronic active hepatitis (there are many more). Acute inflammation is better recognized as infections, wounds and any damage to tissue. They would never heal properly without inflammation – however tissue would become more and more damaged and the body, or any organism, would eventually perish if inflammation is not addressed. This leads to the question: What if there is chronic inflammation? Chronic inflammation of major organs can eventual cause several diseases and conditions, including some cancers, rheumatoid arthritis, atherosclerosis, periodontitis, and hay fever. Inflammation needs to be well regulated.
So, in brief, to address and renew to good, glorious, glowing (3G’s!) skin health seek a product, Skin 2 Skin Care that is clinically proven effective, natural, plant based (to penetrate from skin layer 2 skin layer, not just fill or sit on top of the epidermis), with potent anti-inflammatory ingredients, and choose foods to nourish your body with anti-inflammatory, nourishing foods. To provide you with a few examples we have grouped the most effective anti-inflammatory “agents” if you will in categories below for your ease of reference. (“Agents, as in “agents to your good health!”)
Veggies and Fruits: Broccoli, Cabbage, Carrots, Kale, Spinach, Bean Sprouts, Sweet Potato, Avocado, Guava, Canteloupe, Lemon, Pineapple, Papaya, Strawberry, BlackBerry.
Nuts and Oils –Flaxseed, Macadamia, Hazelnut, Brazil, Olive, Salmon, Canola, and Cod Liver
In the spice department Cayenne, Ginger, Chili, and Turmeric are all wonderfully healing. For those who know us well (and some of our secrets), a ¼ tsp of Turmeric in a smoothie in the morning, or added to a small glass of orange juice prior to eating is fabulous to rejuvenate and feed your organs. This does not have to be a daily routine, but can be done once or twice a week for good health maintenance. As a general rule oily fish such as herring, anchovy, and salmon have good nourishment and anti-inflammatory properties as well as other essential vitamins. These can be eaten as a meal, or added to salads, appetizers, or in soup’s (anchovy to soup or as part of pasta with some spinach and hard cheese for example. Under Kens Kitchen we often provide updated recipe’s that have been independently tested for health impact of ingredients and taste.
