Stop these common skin complaints in their tracks

The Good Life Letter 

24th May 2015

The shorts are out!

Liberated from the back of the garage where I hid them from an overzealous spring clean that threatened to deprive me of my voluminous and garish garments.

Once I get my shorts out I truly feel like summer is not far away.
Strangely my family herald the arrival of my Hawaiian day-glo beauties with disdain, with much talk of knobbly knees and bleached skin in evidence.

The cheek of it!

But my good friend down in Devon had a much more pressing knee related matter on his mind when I spoke to him.

“I don’t understand it,” Wailed Mr G, “I haven’t had eczema like this since I was five, and my bloody psoriasis is flaring up at the same time.”

I had only asked if he fancied a round of golf that week.

“The back of my knees are red, sore and bloody and the front is hard scaly and sore.” He continued. “How can I have both problems at the same time... and how in heck am I going to deal with them?”

In his working life he was a high powered finance executive and got used to having control over all he surveyed so he doesn’t do ill health very well.

Making matters worse for him is that he is a keen gardener and DIY enthusiast so he spends a lot of time on his knees.

The proposition of being laid up with bandages all over his lower legs wasn’t therefore an option with a busy Bank Holiday weekend approaching.

“I’ve got real work to do!” He has always had the opinion that my little enterprise with The Good Life Letter is no more than a hobby.

But my ‘hobby’ was about to offer him the kind of relief he could not get from anywhere else.

Do you want to discover the benefits of ‘magic milk’ for your skin flare ups?

Let’s hear it for skin salvation

As it happens I have always believed that the last ten years of researching and writing this newsletter has been anything but wasted time.

The things I’ve discovered, the amazing people I’ve met and the number of people that have benefitted from the products and advice I have been able to give has been reward enough.

In Mr G’s terms it hasn’t been a roaring financial success, but then again that was never my motivation.

Key to me was the chance to do something real with my life rather than spend it in anodyne corporate isolation making the numbers work.
And right then I held the justification for all of this in my hand.

A few months ago I discovered a rather interesting salve for a range of skin problems which contains a mix of powerful natural ingredients like Aloe Barbadensis leaf extract, Calendula flower extract, pure Almond oil, an extract from a Mediterranean Lavender and a distillation of rose water – amongst other ingredients which have long-lasting effects on dry, damaged and inflamed skin.

This liquid is called [DermaBalm] and a quick look at the list of things that are not in it, plus the added safety factors should be enough to convince anyone that it is worth a try.

It is formulated from all-natural botanical ingredients that are:

  • FREE from Parabens
  • FREE from Sodium Lauryl Sulphate (SLS)
  • FREE from Methylisothiazolinone (MI)
  • FREE from synthetics and harsh chemicals
  • FREE from Steroids
  • FREE from GM Ingredients
  • FREE from Mineral Oil
  • FREE from Lanolin
  • SAFE for Diabetics 
  • SAFE for those with Shellfish Allergy
  • SAFE to use with Warfarin
  • SUITABLE for Vegetarians

So, safe in the knowledge that I could do no harm to a highly stressed and frustrated friend I mailed him a pack straight away.

A week on and the eighteen holes at Tavistock are on him!

Go natural is always a safer option

I know Mr G has tried many and assorted potions for his psoriasis (and, he tells me, even more when he had his eczema flare-ups as a child) some of which help a little but few which really controlled the problems.

He described how the stuff either dried out and crumbled to dust or remained liquid and ruined his clothes.

But he liked the DermaBalm because it is a light fluid that is quickly absorbed, and he knew that being natural he was less likely to get any nasty side effects.

The standard treatment for eczema and psoriasis tends to be based upon steroid creams and there are many concerns over their safe and effective use.

Back in the 1960s when they were first introduced they caused massive problems with thinning skin, and were linked to a range of liver and kidney conditions.

The modern versions are much more controlled in their formulation, however, even the experts from the National Eczema Society who are generally in favour of using these types of treatments say:

"Most people immediately think of thinning of the skin (skinatrophy) whenever steroids are mentioned, and this is certainly the most important potential side effect. It is true that potent and very potent topical steroids can cause thinning of the skin if used for too long without a break. This causes the skin to look wrinkly and papery, with tiny blood vessels (telangiectasia) becoming visible beneath the skin."

Bearing in mind this is what their supporters want you to know about how topical steroid creams might affect you – don’t you think it might be worth looking at other options?

Even if it is just to give your skin a rest from your normal steroid cream you should think about how an alternative treatment could offer relief from the daily discomfort.

Try this natural magic milk for a range of skin conditions including eczema, psoriasis and drug-induced skin flare-ups.

So keep a look out for the pair of us on Bank Holiday Monday as we hack our way around the course (apologies to the green keepers in advance!).

I’ll be the one in a pair of khaki tailored shorts, and he’ll be the one with nice soft pink knees...

...sartorial elegance indeed!

Unless it rains, in which case we’ll be in the bar.

Yours, as always
