WHY ARE WE SO DRY
We deplete our Sebum oil at 38 and stop producing it at 40.
We really need to look after ourselves from the inside and the outside.
I have some fantastic tips on how to best look after our skin and the WHY’s
of what is happening.
Looking after the inside.
Silica, zinc and vitamin C
Looking after the outside
Scrub – in the shower to remove dead skin cells
Serum – pat dry your face and roll under your eyes, top of your mouth and down your neck – dont rub it it – wait for it to soak in
Night cream – Apply though dont rub it in – again let it soak in xx

Menopause and painful joints
Tips for joint pain due to lack of collagen and Silica
I have found my joints are increasingly being painful due to menopause and the lack of silica.
So i have researched and worked on myself with great results.
Due to the pain i have stacked on the weight though am slowly getting on top of it and getting back out there and exercising.

Itchy skin menopause
This is where i am at, itchy menopausal skin, I didn’t know this happens during menopause.
I have had many conversations with friends and customers who are also dealing with menopausal itchy skin as well.
It was driving me bonkers, It felt like my skin was crawling and tingling, from head to toe, constantly.
So What is happening,
Why is one of the symptoms itchy & dry skin EVERYWHERE ?
Well it’s the decrease in the production of oestrogen which basically feeds collagen in your skin.
So the results are the collagen sucked out of us leaving our skin itchy & dry.
To support and feed your collagen, what estrogen used to do we now need to do ourselves.
It is so important to support yourself on the inside as well as the outside.
I for myself prefer to try a natural remedy rather than medical, of course tho there is definitely a time and place for medical.
I have found great relief in my diet to help feed the skin with Silica, vitamin C and also zinc
Top 6 collagen food
- Bone broth
- Chicken – i have a chicken and bone broth soup every night
- Eggs – i have poached eggs every morning
- Citrus – i have lemon water every morning
- Berries – i have a smoothie with frozen berries and powdered seaweed.
- Also having fish in your diet
Itchy skin relief cream
I also have a few products to help topically that many customers and myself have found great relief with.
