Is Your Skin Ready For Winter?

As temperatures drop and the winter season approaches, our skin becomes more prone to dryness.  When left untreated, dryness and the resulting itching can lead to cracked, bleeding skin as winter weather continues to strip away our skin’s moisture and natural oils.

Those with skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis are at especially heightened risk during the winter, since chilly temperatures and low humidity can worsen or trigger symptoms.

Is your skin ready for winter? Fortunately, there are simple changes you can make to your skincare routine that will help you achieve healthier-looking skin. Follow these winter skincare tips to help your skin stay healthy.

5 Natural Remedies for Eczema

Eczema is a very common skin disease that affects over 30 million Americans, both children and adults alike. While each type of Eczema has different triggers and symptoms, it is commonly marked by patches of red, itching, scaling, and inflamed skin. Babies and children generally developed eczema on their faces, but it can appear anywhere on the body. Eczema is not contagious and is thought to be caused by genetics, environmental triggers, and compromised immune systems.

Though eczema cannot be fully cured, this skin condition can be effectively managed to reduce symptoms and related discomfort. Eczema is commonly treated using OTC treatments such as topical ointments, antihistamines for the itching and prescription medications.  But it can also be treated using natural remedies that offer many additional health benefits that may carry far lower health risks.

Natural Acne Treatments That Really Work

If you suffer from Acne, you are not alone.  Acne affects roughly 50 million U.S. men and women, teen and adults every year.  Acne occurs when dirt, oil, and dead skin cells clog your pores and trigger acne. It can be exacerbated by factors including stress, diet, hormonal imbalance and personal hygiene.

Though there are many over-the-counter acne treatments designed for acne, keep in mind that some of these products are often overly harsh on your skin, which can lead to redness, peeling, and stinging.  Using harsh products results in over drying the skin – which causes a rebound effect – your skin will compensate by overproducing sebum (oil), which then leads to more acne.

Prescription medications commonly used to treat acne such as antibiotics and birth control pills are even linked to side effects including headaches, dizziness, and nausea.

Here are some natural acne treatments that really work, and can help you achieve clearer, healthier-looking skin.

How To Get Rid of Dandruff

Dandruff is commonly marked by itchiness on the scalp and hairline that produces excess small to large flakes of skin. These excess skin cells die and fall off, causing white flakes in your hair and clothes. Common causes of dandruff include dry skin, sensitivity to hair care products, having irritated, oily skin (also known as seborrheic dermatitis) and suffering malassezia yeast growth on the scalp.

Dandruff is not contagious, but if you are affected by this chronic, incurable skin condition with embarrassing flakes and itchy scalp, take heart. While there is no cure, there are several treatment options that can banish your flakes.

Dandruff can almost always be controlled. Here’s how to get rid of dandruff options that you can experiment with until you find a treatment that works for you.

Dandruff Shampoos – Are Not All The Same

Shampoo

These shampoos contain special medications and formulas that attack dandruff by reducing fungus and yeast. Some dandruff shampoos even reduce the turnover rate of dead skin cells to cut down on flaking. Before using dandruff shampoos, read all warnings and directions on their labels, since some formulas may discolor your hair or dry your scalp further, which increases flaking. Also, dandruff shampoos aren’t the all the same, so you will need to experiment to find one that works for you.  If any shampoo causes itching, stinging, redness or burning, then discontinue its use.

Getting Rid of Dandruff with Loma Lux Dandruff Pill

getting-rid-of-dandruff-with-loma-lux-dandruff-pillEverybody knows that anti-dandruff shampoos are the most common and convenient to use treatment for dandruff. But what if you could get rid of dandruff by simply taking a pill? Many people are not aware of such a treatment, although it is available and it is a great option in case an anti-dandruff shampoo is not working. The worst part about using an anti-dandruff shampoo is that it may cause addiction. This means that when you use the product, your scalp and hair are free of dandruff. But once you stop using the product, dandruff returns to your head as fast as snapping your fingers. Also, there are situations in which shampoos just can’t handle dandruff because the problem comes more from the inside, rather than from the outside. So it is definitely worth taking a look at these pills, to see what they contain and how they can help us better manage our dandruff issue.

Product Review – LOMALUX Dandruff Pill

Today I wanted to talk to you about a product that may not interest all of you, but some of you may be very interested. I had hoped to give you a full review, but due to all of the health issues I have been dealing with I am constantly running behind on my blog post and I didn’t want to put this off. So you may end up with a follow-up post on this or at least some post on social media letting you know what I think later. Currently I am only a couple of weeks into taking this. I think a month to a month and a half is really needed to give a full accurate opinion.

LOMLUX Dandruff Pill

So lets talk about what this is. The product is the LOMALUX Dandruff Pill. It is a homeopathic medication (I will talk about what that means in a bit) designed to temporarily relieve the symptoms of dandruff. It is a combination of seven active minerals. It is lactose free, gluten free, and vegan. It does have a warning on the box to not take this if you have kidney disease, under fifty pounds, or breast feeding. So those are some things to consider before taking this. Also, the product claims have not been reviewed by the FDA. I personally don’t care about that factor, but I know some people do, and I want you to be fully informed when I review products like this.

LOMA LUX LABORATORIES DANDRUFF PILL

Along with Acne & Psoriasis, Dandruff is caused by the excessively rapid turnover of skin cells. In healthy skin/scalp, new skin cells grow deep in the skin/scalp and slowly rise to the surface, usually every 23 – 30 days. With Dandruff, this process speeds itself up, causing Dandruff scaling and inflammation.

As Dandruff and other skin inflammatory conditions begin internally, why use a topical product that just treats the surface of your scalp? Dandruff Pill targets the internal source – for a healthy scalp from within.

Dandruff Pill’s totally unique 7 Natural Active Mineral Ingredients relieve Dandruff flakes, itchy scalp, dryness, oily scalp and irritation – all in one pill – taken orally, just like a vitamin.

As Dandruff Pill works internally, results are gradual. We recommend a 12 week use course to achieve optimal results. Continue taking as long as beneficial.
