Nutrition for your skin.
Skincare is a critical component in maintaining health and wellbeing. Most commercial skin products are made with the primary goal of having a long shelf life - not with the health of the skin in mind. Pure Integrative Pharmacy carries natural skin care products that contribute to healthy skin and that can also be used as treatments for a variety of skin related issues.
There are many reasons to turn to a natural skin care regime:
- Allergies to traditional ingredients
- Paraben-free means no exposure to the toxic chemical
- Natural skin care products contain vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, which can be absorbed through the skin
- More environmentally friendly
- Individualized compounds can treat specific conditions
What is put on the outside of the body can be absorbed through the skin, and in turn, impact what goes on inside the body. Our bodies absorb the chemicals that are put onto the skin using traditional skin care products. These products are made with harsh and toxic ingredients that can be working against the body by contributing to skin irritation, redness, breakouts, inflammation, and other health issues. Using products that are derived from naturally occurring ingredients, such as herbs, roots, oils, and flowers (and that are manufactured in such a way as to maintain the healing properties of these ingredients) can help protect and repair the skin.
Conditions that may be improved with natural skin care:
- Effects of aging
- Dry/dehydrated skin
- Sun damage
- Stretch marks
