Should I go natural?

Should I go natural?

We often get asked if pursuing natural remedies in order to help solve skin conditions is worthwhile. Natural remedies, like many medicines, are derived from natural products such as plants, fungi or naturally occurring minerals and vitamins. They are not required to pass the same safety or effectiveness standards as medicines but labelling requirements have been improved recently so that consumers have a better idea of what substances are in natural products. Natural remedies can be very effective for some people. Anything that has an effect on the body can also have side effects and just because it is labelled as a “natural remedy” does not mean it is always safe. What we do recommend and something which skin does respond to, is plenty of healthy fresh fruits and vegetables, and a balanced diet.
