Does it feel like nothing helps with your acne? You eat healthy, you live healthy and you’ve tried everything, but nothing helps. Your acne just won’t budge. You may suffer from gluten sensitivity and it may prevent you from curing acne.
Gluten sensitivity is one of those hidden and hard to detect causes behind many
health problems. And something you might not think of in a million years. It
also happens to be the reason many acne victims struggle to get clear skin.
For those hypersensitive to gluten, a perfect diet and healthy lifestyle won’t
clear your skin because of regular exposure to gluten.
So how does gluten contribute to acne?
It is believed that acne is a result of blood sugar problems and chronic
inflammation. These trigger hormonal reactions that lead to increased sebum
production, blocked pores and overgrowth of acne-causing bacteria.
Gluten contributes to acne in two ways.
First, it causes damage to the small intestine, which could lead to nutritional deficiencies and an increased toxic body load (through leaky gut syndrome).
The second link between gluten and acne is inflammation. People with gluten sensitivity cannot digest gluten effectively. As a result they absorb incompletely digested protein
molecules. The immune system treats these as invaders. As it attacks these
‘invaders’ the white cells release histamine, which increases inflammation.
Inflammation increases insulin resistance in the nearby cells.
Unfortunately, gluten is everywhere including nearly all processed foods which
constitute the majority of most American’s diet. Gluten can even be found in items you
wouldn’t think of, such as lipsticks, shampoos and vitamins.

ALOE VERA-help for Psoriasis
can be traced back 6,000 years to early Egypt, where the plant was depicted on stone carvings. Known as the “plant of immortality,” aloe was presented as a burial gift to deceased pharaohs.
What is ALOE used for:
Traditionally,used to treat wounds and various skin conditions, and orally as a laxative. Today, in addition to traditional use, people take ALOE orally to treat a variety of
conditions including diabetes, asthma, epilepsy, and osteoarthritis. Topically, ALOE is used for osteoarthritis, burns, sunburns, and psoriasis.
ALOE is found in hundreds of products from supplements, sunblocks and lotions.
The applicable part of ALOE is the leaf. From the leaf multiple components of aloe can be extracted. Most aloe containing products use the aloe gel or latex.
Aloe latex (a dried substance produced from the green part of the leaf surrounding the
gel) has strong laxative component due to the cathartic effects of the
anthraquinones in the aloe and at one time was regulated by the FDA as OTC
laxatives. They were all removed from the market in 2002 because the company manufacturers did not supply adequate safety data.
PSORIASIS: applying aloe extract 0.5% cream topically 3x’s day for 4 weeks significantly improves and increases the resolution of psoriatic plaques. Early studies have shown that aloe topically helps heal burns and abrasions. However, one study showed that aloe inhibited healing of deep surgical wounds.
Want to help you skin….try some topical estrogen.
A wide range of somatic symptoms of the perimenopausal female is due to the decrease of estrogen at that age. Little if any attention has been paid to the involvement of estrogens in female skin aging symptoms. A recent studyhowever, looked at the aging skin of the face of perimenopausal females and a treatment of 0.3% estriol cream or 0.01%estradiol was utlilized to help with dermal thickness, elasticity and texture.
Both treatment groups showed improvement of the various skin aging symptoms at the end of treatment. The effects of the group treated with topical estriol were slightly superior with regard to their extent and onset.
