Health and Beauty
Wrinkles took a back seat when I got a basal cell skin cancer right on the tip of my nose! Although I can't go back and undo all the damage from being in the sun, I can protect my skin going forward. I've included what I used to diminish the scar from my recent surgery, along with a supplement that has solid research behind it when it comes to protecting your skin.
I add this unflavored collagen powder to my smoothies. Just one scoop provides the following:
20g of collagen (from grass-fed and pasture-raised bovine)
100% of your daily vitamin C requirement
80mg of hyaluronic acid
9g of protein.
All are wonderful for our skin, hair, and joints!
These came highly recommended by my surgeon and can be used as soon as an incision has healed. They can also be beneficial for older scars.
Silicone strips help soften and flatten scaring and cover everything while healing. Wear daily for 12 to 24 hours, for three to six months. And be patient; it can take almost a year for scars to fully settle down.
I was excited to read about this supplement. Several peer-reviewed studies have shown that polypodium leucotomos (a fern from central America) can reduce the damaging effects of the sun.
Not only does this supplement offer protection from skin cancer, but it's also beneficial for treating eczema, psoriasis, atopic dermatitis, and other cancers. The recommended dosage is 240mg daily. And it has an excellent safety record!
This is the BEST laundry detergent I've used. It's hypoallergenic, fragrance-free, and dermatologist tested to be gentle on the skin — and it works!
Like the laundry powder, this stain remover is powered by plant-based ingredients. It's impressive stuff and I haven't been disappointed in the results. (And I'm a very messy eater!)
