Beauty From the Inside With Silicea
Sunday, January 1st 2006
Well cared for, smooth and glowing skin is essential for looking good. Among the most effective substances that give our skin natural beauty are, alongside silicea, vitamins A, C and E and the trace elements selenium and zinc.
Some experiments have proved on effect on the connective tissues of the skin, with it also being used for healing wounds including lower leg ulcer and acne vulgaris. Whether it is for brittle nails, hair loss, flaccid skin or severe illness, silicea can always be administered at least in addition to the normal treatment.
The first obvious wrinkles usually appear in the early to mid 30's. However our skin begins to age much earlier: between 20 and 25 years old, it already stores less moisture and the cells are replaced more slowly. The ability of the skin to regenerate itself is constantly reduced. Suddenly five hours sleep is no longer enough to appear youthfully fresh the next morning and only a few years later even the best make-up has no effect. Insufficient care, poor diet, extended sunbathing and an unhealthy lifestyle, usually linked to excessive consumption of alcohol and nicotine, put great strain on the skin. Stress and lack of sleep also leave obvious traces. All of these are reasons why we should pay a lot of attention to the care of our skin when we are young so that we do not have regrets in our advanced years.
Silicic acid is stabilized so that it no longer attempts to continuously form giant molecule combinations that can only be "broken up" by our body with great difficulty. The advantage of the tiny, colloidally dissolved silicic acid molecules is that they can easily pass through the intestinal wall and reach our connective tissue and other points in our body without too much difficulty.
Silicic acid is available as Silicea Gel.
