Lifestyle factors to consider for great skin

• Iron deficiency increases free radical formation making skin conditions worse
• Check for allergies
• Improve digestion
• Manage stress, even better to reduce it
• Cigarettes are really drying to your skin, even passive. So is air conditioning.
• Reduce your exposure to the midday sun and wind. Try to go out before 10am and after 3pm. Don’t always use a sunscreen as we need the Vitamin D is provides. Use sunscreen, and make it natural – only in the heat of the day
• Check for food sensitivity’s, eliminate offender
• Regular alcohol consumption is really damaging to your skin
• Acne is associated with poor liver health and dirty blood
• Your skin problem may be hormonal, if so address the imbalance with herbs
