Everything we put on our skin penetrates to lower layers containing blood vessels, lymph, sweat and oil glands, immune cells and ends up going through our liver. Add many chemicals to that and it weakens our immune system. Here are natural products made with ingredients good enough to eat. See my “Products” page on this website for more information. Natural skin care with products made from fermented mushroom and pure raw honey and shea butter. A gentle effective skin brightening cream to remove age spots, sun spots and irregular textured skin made with kojic and glycolic acid. Kojic is an extract from a fermented mushroom, is widely used in Asia to exfoliate dry, rough, spotted skin. Test a little on your arm first and if your skin is sensitive use it every other day. Avoid long exposure to the sun while using this skin brightener. http://www.absorbyourhealth.com/…/skin-brightening-serum-…/… A skin-refining moisture cream made with honey: http://www.absorbyourhealth.com/…/bee-venom-mask-cream-da…/…

Neem a tree that grows in India and Florida is a healing miracle. All parts of the tree are medicinal. The leaves and bark are anti-inflammatory, antibiotic and anti-parasite. Neem can be consumed as tea, tooth powder or applied as an body oil. This oil is cooling, moistening and stops itches from dry skin and bug bites, safe and convenient to wear outdoors and pleasant for daily use. Made with neem, karanja, sesame, olive and jojoba oils – plus essential oils of lavender, cedarwood and lemongrass – the all-natural formulation soaks in quickly for fast and long-lasting relief. It is especially good for my friends who garden or play outdoor sports. https://neemtreefarms.com/shop/anti-itch-formula/?ap_id=Letha
