Topical Treatments for Skin Conditions


Itching for Relief from Your Skin Condition?

Healthy skin is an integral part of good health. Common skin
conditions such as acne, eczema, psoriasis and rosacea can
be painful, itchy, irritating and greatly affect self-confidence.
It can be a frustrating and challenging road finding effective
and sustainable ways to improve the health and appearance
of your skin, as these common skin conditions are much more
than skin deep!

The appearance of your skin can be an outward reflection
of your health on the inside, and a comprehensive approach
to treatment is required in order for the internal causes to be
resolved. Your Practitioner can also help put you on the right
path to healthier skin by providing symptomatic relief with
topical skin creams to soothe and heal the skin.

Vital Functions of the Skin

Skin is the largest organ of the body and is involved in
eliminating toxins, regulating body temperature and protecting
the inside of the body from potential invading microorganisms.
Millions of skin cells are shed each day and our
skin completely replaces itself approximately every 27 days.

Topical Treatment for Skin Conditions

While a comprehensive internal treatment strategy to address
skin problems from the inside out is underway, topical
creams and lotions can be used to give speedy and effective
symptomatic relief for itchy, red, inflamed and painful skin

There are natural solutions to help you on your
way to healthy, vibrant skin.
