Supporting Lifestyle and Nutritional Protocol
Human skin should never be dry. When skin is healthy, several mechanisms function to maintain the hydration of the body’s largest organ. Skin tissue contains microscopic sponge-like molecules, proteins, and sugars whose function is to trap and absorb moisture. Fatty substances including waxes, lipids , and cholesterol further facilitate moisturization. And the skin’s surface, the stratum corneum functions as a barrier preventing the loss of water through evaporation (technically called TEWL, trans-epidermal water loss). When skin dryness (xerosis) occurs it is typically the result of either a poorly formed skin barrier and/or deficiencies in skin moisture factors. This condition can be exacerbated by the breakdown of connective tissue in the dermis. Using nutritional and dietary protocols can be much more effective than using ordinary moisturizers which can actually suppress the production of natural skin moisture factors and inhibit effective barrier formation. Consider adding the following protocols to your daily routine:
1. Help correct fat malabsorption issues with bile salts, lecithin, digestive enzymes and apple cider vinegar with meals. Start meals off with “bitters” and bitter veggies like dandelion greens, radish, arugula, and kale.
2. Avoid alkaline soaps, instead, use low pH cleansers and coconut oil.
3. Enjoy healthy fatty foods, olives, eggs, fish, organ meats.
4. Use nutritional supplements featuring all 90 essential nutrients. Pay particular attention to:
- Vitamin D
- Vitamin A
- Vitamin E
- Omega 3 Essential Fatty Acid and Fish Oil
- Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA)
- Vitamin C
