Skin conditions are a physical and emotional rollercoaster. Anyone who has lived with skin issues could divulge stories of anxiety, anger, frustration and worthlessness which can turn into despair and depression. Whether it is irritated, inflamed, dry, weeping or oily, the triggers are endless. Working out the cause can take years of research, learning and experimentation. Throw in hormones and it’s the perfect storm. Hormonal changes are known to be a trigger for skin conditions, causing issues throughout puberty and in different stages of adulthood, during pregnancy, peri menopause, menopause and post menopause.
It is well known that deficiencies in the diet can have a profound effect on the body, dry skin, night blindness and stunted growth in the case of vitamin A, rickets which effects the mineralisation of bones in the case of vitamin D, scurvy a vitamin C deficiency causing bruising, bleeding, joint and muscle pain, or vitamin E causing nerve and muscle damage. So, it is not a leap in thinking it is believed people with skin conditions have deficiencies of essential fatty acids.
Helen who researched skin issues and plant oils spoke about the fatty acids the body uses to function correctly, omegas 3, 6, and 9 the most well-known. Omega 3 Alpha Linolenic Acid (ALA) mainly from plant oils or green leafy vegetables and omega 6 Linoleic Acid (LA) also found in plant oils, are named essential fatty acids (EFA’s) as body is unable to or has a reduced capacity to produce these and they form components of every cell wall in the body. Within the omega 6 family also lies Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA) necessary to produce prostaglandins integral to the body’s repair.
Deficiency in ALA shows as eczema, dry skin, dandruff and cracked nails. Omega 3 is thought to have natural capacity to reduce inflammatory symptoms which in the skin increases the potential for a compromised skin barrier. A balanced diet and additional supplementation where required may help maintain skin health. With western diets high in processed food the ratios of omega 6 and omega 3 are out of balance but combining omega 6 and omega 3 in ratios of 4:1 gives the greatest reduction in inflammatory conditions.
The Bare Faced Skin founder stated: “There is no such thing as one size fits all when it comes to skin conditions. Some choose the conventional medicine route, topical treatments of steroids, occlusive creams which slow trans epidermal water, or external application of retinols and laser treatments. Others may go for holistic whole body approach, emotional and physical well-being, including diet and skincare.”
The inclusive award-winning beauty products incorporate oils high in both linoleic acid and alpha linolenic acid helping in the reduction of skin inflammation and irritation, added antioxidants help combat free radial damage which causes the breakdown in collagen and elastin in the skin. The nutrient rich formulas have been developed with the aim of supporting the skin barrier function, and providing essentials the skin needs to function correctly, moisture, protection, and nourishment. The UK black owned brand’s no nonsense products provide skin confidence and mood boosting results, one solution to help you change the way you feel about your skin and find your calm.
