Sensitive skin (acne,dandruff,constipation,dry skin)I've had mild to severe acne for 6 years on my face and upperback. I've tried antibiotics but it was only a 2 month solution because as soon as I stopped taking them it came right back (happiest two months of my life though). After that I didn't want to try anymore of the mainstream solutions because they always seemed to be only temporary solutions and I like to stay clear of drugs in any shape way or form. When I was 19 I found out that I had chronic constipation. I figured it was due to a food
allergy despite what my doctor told me, which was it sounded like IBS and
that there is no way it could be a food allergy. I tried cutting out dairy all together for a month and found absolutely no difference. Then I tried
cutting out wheat and caffein and my skin cleared up and my constipation
was not as bad. I went from going to the bathroom once a week or more to going once every 2 days. Sometimes seemingly unexplainably my constipation would return and I would be going once a week again, so I ordered a colon cleanser called oxypowder which I take now whenever this happens. For the past 6 months my face has become extremely dry especially after showers. So I tried using a moisturizer, Garnier Pure. After that my skin became blotchy and deep pimples under the skin came up in spots I dont even usually get pimples. I also suffer from bad dandruff which I solved by trying a shampoo called healthy scalp. Any other shampoo will cause my hair to have very bad dandruff. I've had bad dandruff since grade 4. Even hardcore dandruff shampoos seem to only work for just a little while then lose their effect. I also have permanent red marks under my arms from using deodorant for 6 months. The red marks become extremely itchy when they get dry. I've had these red marks under my arm for about 3 years now. If I try to put deodorant on now it instantaneously starts to burn and I have to wash it off. So right now I stuck with either super dry skin with the occasional breakout or moisturized broken out skin, dandruff that can only be controlled by one shampoo, and itchy red marked underarms that can't use any deoderant. It seems that my skin reacts badly to anything I put on it, so I do my best to not even as so much touch my skin, let alone put anything on it. I have somewhat found a cure for my acne but my skin is just so sensitive that its hard to go a week without some sort of skin damage. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Try it. Forget soap.

Breakdown of the acid mantle occurs when products that are not pH correct are applied on the skins surface. Skin has a pH value that falls somewhere between 4.5 and 6. Therefore it is crucial when dealing with eczema to use products that are pH correct (having a pH which falls between 4.5 and 6). Most readily available products are pH balanced which means having a pH range of 7, this pH range can irritate and disturb the skins acid mantle. One of the worst offenders to breaking down the acid mantle is ordinary soap. Soaps pH range falls between a 9-11 which creates high alkaline levels and allows for the growth of bacteria.
Moisturizing the skin contributes to one of the most important self care treatments for sufferers of eczema. Again, a moisturizer that maintains a pH correct range of between 4.5 and 6 should be used. Those suffering from eczema should search out moisturizers that are natural or botanically based instead of chemically based. These moisturizers use essential oils from nature that are known to nourish and protect the skin from the environment. Chemically based products can irritate the skin and worsen the condition. Eczema sufferers need to look for products that do not contain mineral oil or petrolatum, these ingredients are occlusive, clog pores and interferes with the skins basic function which is to release toxins and absorb nutrients. The use of products that do not contain known irritants such as dyes and fragrances is also highly recommended.
Good Skincare Products make a difference
The implementation of natural based skincare products that incorporate a correct pH range that protects the skins acid mantle, is free of known toxins, and does not contain occlusive ingredients show significant improvement in the treatment and even the elimination of eczema. People who have suffered from eczema for years have seen it vanish almost over night after implementing this simple approach. Sufferers are able to regain their social activities and their self esteem and quality of life greatly improves.
Following these guidelines and obtaining products that meet the above criteria might be all you need to cure your skin condition and have beautiful skin.
I hope this helps and if you have any questions or need further informaton please contact me.

MeritVCO extra virgin coconut oil for internal and external uses
With all the health, nutritional, and beauty benefits that you get from Virgin coconut oil, there is no doubt why this has been hailed as the miracle oil. It is said to prevent and cure many sicknesses that are almost impossible to heal. Being a healthy oil, it could help decrease viral load of HIV patients, could improve insulin production and thyroid function, it could reduce the risk of diabetes complications, and could even fight heart disease which is the leading cause of death. Virgin coconut oil improves the performance of the digestive system that can make a person lose weight
In addition, Virgin coconut oil may also solve skin problems like acne, pimples, black heads, eczema, psoriasis, or as simple as dry skin. To learn more about the Virgin coconut oil benefits, read on the article:
Benefits of Virgin coconut oil for external health
1. Virgin coconut oil and acne or pimples
Acne is common during the stage of adolescence due to some hormonal changes experienced in puberty. One of these hormonal changes is the abnormally excessive secretion of oil (sebum) by the sebaceous glands. When bacteria mix up with sebum, then there is acne eruption.
Virgin coconut oil contains medium chain fatty acids that boost the metabolic process in the body. Ingesting Virgin coconut oil can improve metabolism that enhances cell and hormonal functions. As a result of better digestion, there is regulated excretion of oil by the sebaceous glands.
Putting coco oil on your face also melts bacteria clogged up in the pores.
2. For dry scalp
Healthy scalp would mean healthy hair. Lauric acid converted into monolaurin is one of the antimicrobial properties of Virgin coconut oil. This acid is also found as ingredient in soaps and shampoo. By applying coco oil, your scalp is kept moisturized and protected from fungi that cause dandruff.
3. Virgin coconut oil for hair
Healthier and shinier hair is also one of the Virgin coconut oil benefits. To keep your hair from being dry and unmanageable, spread an ample amount of coco oil from the roots to the tip of damp hair. Do not put too much or your hair might get greasy.
4. For skin
Many people experience dry skin. Untreated dry skin can cause premature wrinkling and ageing in the long run.
A solution to this is applying virgin Virgin coconut oil as alternative to your other body lotions. The usual lotion that you use primarily contains water that easily evaporates, thus, drying your skin. Virgin coconut oil prolongs the moisture on your skin making it smooth and soft the whole day.
To add to that, Virgin coconut oil also strengthens by holding your skin tissues together and protects the skin from the harmful UV rays of the sun. The antiseptic composition of Virgin coconut oil kills fungi and yeast that cause athletes foot, diaper rash, and candidiasis
Virgin coconut oil cure can also be true to eczema. Eczema, an inflammation of the epidermis, is caused by hereditary factors, allergens like dust, pets, or plant pollens, and irritants like smoke or solvents. As a result, a person experiences itching, flaking, dryness, or even bleeding of the skin. Moisturizers are very important treatment for eczema and Virgin coconut oil is best for lasting moisture for the skin. This same effect of coco oil also treats psoriasis.
Benefits of Virgin coconut oil for internal/systemic health
Maintaining a Virgin coconut oil diet is beneficial for your internal body system. Virgin coconut oil diet is done by changing your usual cooking oil with refined Virgin coconut oil and taking three to three and a half tablespoons of virgin Virgin coconut oil as supplement everyday.
The medium chain fatty acids (MCFAs) in Virgin coconut oil greatly contributes in boosting the digestive system that improve the performance of cells and hormonal secretion of glands. Also, Virgin coconut oil contains antimicrobial lipids, lauric acid, capric acid, and butyric acid that are helpful in fighting infections, yeast growth, and killing disease-causing bacteria.
In effect are the following Virgin coconut oil health benefits:
1. Virgin coconut oil and thyroid
Hypothyroidism is a state when the thyroid glands are not producing sufficient thyroid hormones. Virgin coconut oil plays a major role in improving thyroid function.
2. Virgin coconut oil and diabetes
Diabetes is a syndrome of a metabolism disorder resulting to high blood sugar levels in the body. Insulin is a hormone that assists the blood sugar to enter the cell and be converted as heat and energy. There is better production of insulin with the help of MCFAs present in coco oil.
3. For heart disease
Common fats are not easily absorbed by the cells as nutrients. Instead they are stored as body fat until they get clogged in the arteries and blood vessels. This clogging disrupts blood circulation and leads to heart ailments.
MCFAs in Virgin coconut oil, being more soluble, are easily converted into nutrients in the metabolic process. So, if you use Virgin coconut oil, you would lessen the fear the risk of heart disease.
4. Weight Loss
The medium chain fatty acids also aid in the calorie-burning activity when your system is digesting food. This means you can lose weight in using or ingesting Virgin coconut oil.
Note: Since Virgin coconut oil enhances the digestive system, it is advised that taking and using Virgin coconut oil is done gradually to give the system time to adjust. Ingesting big amounts of Virgin coconut oil immediately may cause diarrhea, so small amounts at a time will do until you are ready for a regular dosage.
5. Virgin coconut oil and candida
Candidiasis happens when Candida species grow uncontrollably in the small intestine, vaginal canal, or the mouth until it affects many parts of the body including the intestinal tract.
These fungi can grow in years causing inflammations and discomforts in humans like respiratory infection, painful urination, chronic rashes, oral yeast infection, vaginal discharge, impotency, among many others.
MCFAs in Virgin coconut oil have antifungal properties (like lauric acid) killing bad bacteria, fungi, and yeast like Candida.
6. For Bones and teeth (and osteoporosis)
Since MCFAs present in Virgin coconut oil facilitate better absorption of nutrients from the food to the body, thus, there is also faster absorption of calcium for the teeth and bones. Because of calcium absorption, coco oil helps prevent osteoporosis a disease of bone that can cause fractures.
7. For Cancer
Other than lauric acid and medium chain fatty acids, Virgin coconut oil also contains butyric acid which is said to be an anti-cancer agent.
8. HIV, AIDS, and the Immune System
Virgin coconut oil can also benefit the HIV and AIDS patients. A nutritionist and Virgin coconut oil advocate Dr. Bruce Fife, once shared about a story of an HIV patient. This man stayed in a rural place where he maintained a coconut diet and an organic lifestyle. His viral count decreased and he became more energetic.
The first clinical study about Virgin coconut oil being effective treatment for HIV was reported by a Filipino pharmacology professor, Dr. Conrado Dayrit. This study has confirmed that coco oil can reduce the viral load of an HIV patient.
There are actually antiviral drugs used to fight HIV but they give a lot of bad side effects like vomiting, hemorrhaging, fatigue, and altered mental function. Virgin coconut oil, on the other hand, does not give these side effects to patients.
More so, the lauric acid, capric acid, and caprylic acid boost the immune system. As such, Virgin coconut oil helps in dealing with virus and bacteria that may cause herpes, influenza, and cytomegalovirus.
9. For Stress
The soothing effect of Virgin coconut oil releases stress. Applying Virgin coconut oil on your head is helpful in eliminating mental fatigue.
The good fatty acids are key components that make coco oil beneficial to your health, nutrition, and beauty. Now that you know these facts, buy Virgin coconut oil and use it to gain all the Virgin coconut oil benefits.
