Holistic Dermatology & Hormones
Dermatology conditions like aging skin, loss of skin turgor, sallow, and blah lifeless skin are a common complaint in my Holistic Women's Health practice.
When women are suffering with Menopause, Perimenopause, Hypothyroidism, Hashimotos and Hormone Imbalance they also complain of dry skin.
Sometimes the hormone imbalance can cause new acne, eczema, psoriasis, hives, rashes, and autoimmune skin issues a woman has never experienced before as the body becomes naturally more inflamed with menopause and hormone imbalance.
While we are working to address "The Root Cause" of the dermatology symptoms this is a generally soothing skin formula that many of my patients report improvement with. As with any herbs, there is risk of Food Allergy or Food Sensitivity.
Although Olive Oil and Rosemary are both anti-aging, a different carrier oil can be used such as coconut, sesame, or avocado oil.
Supersonic Anti-aging Skin Oil
1-5 drops organic Rosemary essential oil
4 oz Olive Oil
4 vitamin e capsules
2 tsp Rosemary Leaf Oil
For my recipe on Instagram I used a premade rosemary leaf oil I had made from rosemary leaves from my garden along with olive oil and then added vitamin e, and 1-2 drops of rosemary essential oil. If omitting the homemade rosemary oil then you may need to add a little more rosemary essential oil.
Combine all ingredients and stir well. Please keep this preservative free formula covered in a dark area. I use this within four weeks of making. I like to mix a couple pumps of the oil with mix my moisturizer this time of year while it is so hot. Dry skin complaints are at their peak right now so I thought I would share this simple remedy for dry skin, anti-aging, and the best part is rosemary is a natural bug repellant.
You may even repel some people as not everyone likes the way this smells so you may want to add a few drops of lavender or mint. Keep mint and rosemary away from the eyes!
This is my best anti-aging tip for the outside of your skin as a holistic dermatologist. Be sure to follow me on Instagram for my latest Naturopathic tips since not every recipe makes it on to my blog.
To treat your skin from the inside eat clean and check out my Dermatology tea blog for anti-aging. I have also been hearing reports from my acne patients that the ginger in the tea is helping clear up their skin and prevent breakouts!
