A - Skin will return to its most ideal state if there has not beem scarring and if it is given high levels of the nutrients it relies on to function optimally, and it is not continually subjected to ongoing inflammation. This means you cannot use irritants, you cannot exfoliate, you cannot get sunburns. You must increase circulation and maximize non-traumatic ingredients that encourage the skin to live up to its potential. We must also increase our immune efforts to repair and remove the scar tissue. This is best done by activating macrophages. Finally, we need to make repairs at the cellular level to the actual damaged DNA until we can achieve productions levels of antioxidants and enzymes that match the skin of our youth.

Q - Why am I getting acne after age 30?

Q - What are those bumps on my kids' arms?
A - Those goose bumps are what known as keratosis pilaris. I believe they are related to digestion. Exfoliation helps little, but internal options like probitics and/or anti-fungals may be more beneficial.The skin on the back of the arm is sensitive, which is why aggressive topical remedies are not tolerated well.
