Skin Care

Posted in Books, Food, General, Health, Nutrition, Vitamins

It is the time of year when many people have extra dry skin. I am a firm believer in “we heal from the inside out”, but while you are in that process you may need to choose something topical. I am always for as natural as you can be and avoiding medicines that have side effects and toxic chemicals, if possible. I am going to share information from an article from Dr. Mercola’s web-site,  you can also look into this further on your own. For topical use he recommended Pure Emu Oil, coconut Oil and a Body Butter I believe you can purchase through his web-site. There is controversy about mineral oil, so I would just avoid a product with that in the line up.

Internally, Omega 3 Fats..good for many things and skin is one of them. You can take it in a capsule, buy good quality from a reputable company as to be confident of its efficacy and safety. You could eat fish that has it. Dr. Mercola recommended sardines, anchovies and Herring…not sure if I would do it! I am a proponent of flax seed oil for omegas. Flax seed oil contains 9 percent saturated fatty acids, 18 percent clean acid, 16 percent omega-6 and 57 percent omega 3.  With its extremely high omega-3content, flax seed oil provides a remedy for the omega=6/omega-3 imbalance so prevalent in America today. Should be kept refrigerated, never heated and used in small amounts.(from Nourishing Traditions)

I must mention that the intestinal integrity…good bacteria vs bad bacteria is also likely responsible for healthy skin. Too many sugars, white flour carbs and other toxins effect that intestinal flora balance and the symptoms for some are allergies expressed in the skin. Take your probiotics and eat a diet full of healthy choices.

Happy New Year and I hope this little bit of information can help those who need it.



Though I attend several of her classes, where Darla truly shines is as a personal trainer and
health coach. She saw where I was, and helped me to get where I wanted to be, even though I
wasn’t sure I was communicating it clearly. After just a year my Dr. was amazed to report my
bone density had improved, and my overall health was enhanced. Darla keeps training fresh,
challenging, and enjoyable; and she is always supportive and encouraging. During this time of
sheltering I have been continuing my training sessions via Skype, and her eagle eye doesn’t
miss a thing…still correcting my form and pushing me to go beyond where I thought I could go.
Thank you doesn’t seem nearly enough for someone who got me back on a positive health track
that has enriched body, mind and spirit. But thank you anyway, Darla.
