Facts about an oatmeal face mask and skin care!
You’ve probably read or heard about Oatmeal and the good things it does for the skin.
There are two very important Oatmeal benefits, do you know what they are?
It contains essential amino acids and it’s also hypoallergenic. Add those two together and you get skin that is well hydrated.
But what important role do amino acids play in our skin. We know they improve the cellular structure of the skin (the epidermis, dermis, and subcutaneous fat layers) but they also play an important role in skin tone and color.
Have you ever heard the term colloidal oatmeal when speaking about skin care or bath products?
If so, that refers to the oats which have been turned into an extremely fine powder. Many oatmeal based products are used for relief from sunburn to poison ivy and you find these in lotions, creams, or powder form.
You need to look no further than the label of your product to understand that Oatmeal is recognized by the FDA for its protection benefits to our natural skin.
Facts about Parsley and skin care!
Parsley contains a high concentration of vitamin C, iron and is a good source of manganese. It also contains calcium and is a great source of potassium.
The benefits these vitamins and minerals have on your skin is well know. Vitamin C is a powerful anti-oxidant and in conjunction with protein, is necessary for the production of collagen – the glue that holds us and our skin together and circumvents sags or wrinkles. It regulates sebaceous glands to keep skin from drying out; helps prevent facial lines, wrinkles and spider veins.

What causes sensitive skin?
Allergies are a very common cause for sensitive skin. Sometimes even food allergies can trigger skin outbreaks. If you think this may be the cause of your skin problems, you may find it helpful to get allergy testing. You can read more about this at our common allergies and symptoms page.
Genetic factors also can play a role in sensitive skin. Do a lot of your family members have skin problems? Research has shown that fair skinned people tend to develop sensitive skin more often than people with darker complexions.
Poor digestion and food assimilation can play a role in developing sensitive skin. If you have difficulty digesting your food, not only are you not receiving as much nutrition as your body needs, but also the undigested food tends to create gas, bloating and inflammation in your digestive tract. This kind of inflammation can affect many other body systems including your skin.
Sluggish elimination can cause skin problems, as the toxins that need to leave the body aren’t able to be released through the digestive system, so they are more likely to erupt through the skin.
If you have poor digestion or sluggish elimination, but are in otherwise good health, you may want to try a homemade body cleanse to help restore your body’s optimal health.
Thyroid problems have also been known to cause skin problems. I heard a statistic recently that 25% of women have a low thyroid, and I do not know the accuracy of this figure, but I know of many people who have imbalances that cause an overactive or underactive thyroid. Some symptoms of thyroid problems include:
- Dry skin
- Hair loss
- Immune problems
- Memory problems
- Weight gain or loss
- Low body temperature or heat intolerance
- Heavy or light menstrual periods
- Cold or warm hands and feet
