Acne SerumMost commercial acne treatment products are loaded with toxic chemicals and synthetic preservatives.  These products use harsh chemical ingredients to aggressively dry out the skin.  They use synthetic preservatives, such as parabens, to allow their products to set on store shelves for literally years.

Unfortunately, these toxic chemicals that dry up the skin end up irritating, hastening free radical damage, creating an imbalance between skin moisture and oil levels, clogging the pores, causing bacterial infections and premature skin aging.  Many of these synthetic preservatives are estrogenic and can lead to multiple health problems.

Use an all-natural acne treatment product that helps maintain and balance the skins proper moisture and oil levels, and one that is free of dangerous synthetic preservatives.  Your skin and overall health will reap the benefits if you do.

Skin Structure

The skin not only provides the body with a waterproof covering but is also a complex organ made of many special cells. The skin varies in thickness from very thin areas that cover the eyelids to thicker areas such as the soles of the feet that have constant wear and tear.

Two primary structures make up the layers of the skin. The outer layer is referred to as the epidermis and the underlying layer is the dermis. A small, fingernail size patch of skin would contain approximately 5 million cells, over 100 sweat glands and hairs, 1000 sensors for touch, approximately 3 1/2 feet of microscopic blood vessels and 1 1/2 feet of nerve fibers. Simply amazing!

Sodium laurel sulfate causes eye irritations, skin rashes, hair loss, scalp scurf, and allergic reactions.  It penetrates the brain, heart, eyes, and liver.  It can also keep children’s eyes from developing properly.  Remember, whatever you put on your skin it is immediately absorbed into your bloodstream.
