Summer Skin and Skin Conditions
Remember being young and carefree, enjoying the sun and playing outside without irritating skin conditions and the worry of sun damage. For many of us, those days are behind us. We still love the sun, but now we slather on the sunblock in an attempt to protect ourselves from the harmful UV rays. Many of us deal with skin conditions all year round: acne, psoriasis, eczema, rosacea and cold sores. The summer months tend to make these conditions worse.
You may have heard that sun can help clear up outbreaks from eczema, psoriasis and atopic dermatitis. While this is true, outbreaks can also become worse in the summer because of overheating and excessive sweating—which can cause increased itching. Sunblock does protect our skin from harmful UV rays. However, it can also be irritating to those of us who suffer from eczema. The following vitamins help address the outbreaks: beta carotene is necessary for the repair and maintenance of skin and mucous membranes. It also enhances the immune system. Vitamin E helps to prevent cell damage, improves circulation and repairs tissues. Selenium is an antioxidant. It works synergistically with vitamin E to protect tissues and cell membranes.
Acne sufferers may deal with more outbreaks in the summer months because the excessive heat causes our body’s to sweat more. Sweat contains toxins and other substances from your body that once are inside your pores will cause your skin to break out. The summer heat opens up your pores allowing dirt and debris to enter your skin. In order to protect your skin from toxins, cleanse the body. Dandelion root helps cleanse the liver and the blood of toxins and balances the skin pH levels.
Rosacea outbreaks can be triggered by extreme temperature changes. The heat increases vascular dilation or blood flow and causes the sweat glands to work harder. This causes reddening of the face along with bumps and pimples. In order to address the inflammation caused from the increased blood flow, you need ligustrum, which stimulates the immune system, decreases inflammation and protects the liver. Echinacea is good for immunity and the lymphatic system and combats inflammation caused by bacterial and viral infections. Finally, cold sores are a culprit of skin outbreaks in summer. The sun can be a trigger. As the cold sore clears, it is important to keep the spot covered in sunscreen, or a lip balm with an SPF of at least 21. However, it is also important to attack the outbreak from the inside, L-Lysine aids in the production of collagen and tissue repair and combats the herpes virus-which is the root cause of cold sores.
On a personal note, I’m a psoriasis sufferer, and have been for over ten years. I always dreaded summer because I couldn’t enjoy any of the activities I loved as a child, like swimming. The chlorine in the water made swimming painful. A friend recommended that I give Herpanacine a try. So, I did and my skin was clear within six months. I can finally enjoy summer without dread. Now, I live my life without the embarrassment of flakes and redness. Herpanacine Skin Support cleanses the blood and liver of toxins, cleanses skin layers, gets to the root cause of whatever is causing your skin condition, whether it’s bacterial or viral. It balances your pH level and improves your immunity. Once your skin condition is clear, continue taking Herpanacine Skin Support because it will improve the tone and texture of your skin and protect you from further outbreaks.
