18 Aug Best Tips to Nourish Your Skin Naturally
Whether you’re traveling across the country, sitting by the pool, playing sports, water activities, beaches or having outdoor picnics, your favorite times are likely outdoors. That means the sun and your skin will be spending a lot of time together, and the opportunities for sunburn, dried out skin, exposure to insects and insect bites, and other skin damage goes way up.
That also means it’s time for you to take steps to prevent and minimize any skin problems before they start.
Diet and your Skin
Your skin reflects the nourishment you consume, so take a quick inventory of your diet. Your skin loves antioxidants, but especially vitamins A and C, lutein, resveratrol, and zinc. It also thrives on omega-3 fatty acids derived from such things as fatty fish and avocados. Great antioxidant sources include a variety of berries, lutein from dark chocolate, and resveratrol from red grapes, cocoa, and even pecans. Vitamin A enriched goodies include things like carrots, spinach, red and yellow bell peppers, broccoli and be sure to try and get as much Vitamin C enriched foods in your diet like kale, strawberries, oranges, brussels sprouts to name a few.
Staying well hydrated is also critical for skin health. Pure water, green and white teas, herbal teas, and vegetable broths are good choices.
Protecting your Skin with Topical Products
Go into most stores or online and you’ll find scores of topical skin products that claim to soothe, smooth, and relieve skin issues including sunburn, rashes, and other irritations. In fact, the options can be quite overwhelming.
In many cases, these products are full of chemicals and synthetic ingredients that not only fall short providing natural relief from sunburn, irritation, injuries, and rashes, but may actually harm your skin as well. Read the labels, and if you can’t pronounce the ingredients and don’t see any natural substances in the product, you may want to put them back on the shelf. Be aware of harmful chemicals such as:
- phenoxyethanol to name a few
Your skin absorbs topically more than you think so give it the nourishment its thirsty for.

How Silver can Help your Health
Silver is a natural elemental mineral and has been safeguarding human health for over 2,400 years both internally and topically. Hippocrates, the father of medicine wrote about its supportive healing processes as far back as 400 B.C. Over the generations since ancient civilizations, silver’s topical benefits have been wide reaching. It was also used for wounds during the brutal Civil War and World War I battlefields. Today it’s still used globally for infant eyes and even in burn centers.
Internally, colloidal silver usage has also surged as an effective immune support. What’s liquid colloidal silver? It consists of ultra-fine silver nanoparticles suspended in deionized water. When you read colloidal silver product labels, you’ll see PPM, which means “parts per million.” The higher the PPM, the greater the concentration of silver particles per serving which means you’ll enjoy an increased immune support. Ranges between 50ppm – 500ppm are the most effective.
Other Helpful Skin Ingredients Combined with Topical Silver
Topical silver, on its own, has a rich legacy of skin benefits, but what about adding specific herbal ingredients to further enhance optimal skin care? Here’s an all-star selection that have shown positive. Remember: organic is always preferred!
