More than skin deep?

April 2010, Warren Matthews

Summary

I really think that it is worth trying our lotion and stop doing the exfoliation for a while. Also, it is important to be aware that this problem is likely to be caused by something going on inside you. It may be an allergy as you suggest but if it is a reasonably recent occurrence, it is in my opinion more likely to be a nutrient deficiency of some sort.

*This was a question raised on Warren's Blog where you can find many comments regarding this question and various others.

Question: from Grace

Right now I'm suffering from skin allergy. I'm not pretty sure, though since I haven't seen a Doctor yet. But if it is an allergy then this is my first time. I haven't had allergy before. My skin is very itchy then turns into rashes.

Also, even if I exfoliate everyday (literally) after I dried myself I still see dead skin. I stopped using lotion for almost 2 weeks now, instead I'm using virgin coconut oil but my skin is very dry still. I wanted to know if the Xtend Life lotion can help me with my skin problem. I'm 45.

My suggestion would be to add our new Omega 3 / DHA Fish Oil to your daily regime at double the normal rate - 4 per day. Also add at least the Total Balance Unisex Standard or, if you can manage the extra cost, use the Premium version. The combination of these two supplements can do wonders for your skin.

If this and the skin care products don't help then you I would suggest that you have your Thyroid levels checked. If they are down this could contribute to dry skin.

  • “Hi Anita Are you referring to a daily facial wash/cleanser or a make-up remover? We are currently completing the development phase of a facial cleanser. At the moment, we are making tweaks to the final formulation before completing the planning behind the production process. The new facial cleanser should be ready before September / October 2010. However, as far as a make-up remover is concerned, there is nothing in the production plans at this stage. Hope this helps answer your question.”

  • “Yes I was referring to a facial cleanser. Great to hear of one coming out soon. Do you know if it will be a creamy or foaming cleanser or optiion of both? Any plans for an exfoliater?”

  • “I’ve been using your day cream which i find fantastic on my skin, however I found the night cream didn’t absorb very well and didn’t spread over my skin smoothly. So I’ve been using the day cream at night instead. Can you tell me when you will be releasing a cleanser? I did raise this question over a year ago and was told it was in the process but still haven’t seen anything. What is the reason to not have a cleanser in your skin range, you have many other skin products but have missed the very first step of a skin regime – Cleanser. hoping to see one come out soon.”

  • “Hi Anita, The product will be a daily facial cleanser/wash and will be dispensed in a foam. There are no plans at the moment to develop an exfoliator.”
