Eczema & Inflammation
Food intolerances and sensitivities are often expressed through your skin in the form of inflammation, primarily eczema. These conditions are further exacerbated by a dry environment. The "elimination diet" can get to the internal root of the problem; removal then re-introduction, one by one, of typical food allergens: milk, eggs, wheat, soy, fish, shellfish, peanut, tree nuts. LoveStock supports the healing process of the skin as you navigate dietary changes. Externally, LoveStock alleviates, and can even get rid of skin inflammations.
If the lining to the gut is healthy, chock full of effective biota, then your health will follow suit. Leaky gut can develop over time and cause food intolerances when agitated by stress, sleep-deprivations (e.g. parents!!!), infection, injury, trauma, or pregnancy/birth. Anti-bodies attack foreign invaders (the food you eat) and cause leaky gut. Once the pathway of leaking has commenced, health conditions can change quickly and lead to auto-immune disease. Choose an anti-inflammatory diet that suits your needs: AIP, GAPS, SCD, gluten-free, grain-free, paleo and stick with it. LoveStock also promotes regular consumption of bone broth for healing from the inside-out (gut to skin).
Facial inflammation- dry spots, blackheads, whiteheads, blemishes, outbreaks can be solved by using tallow as your facial cleanser. Massage SUPREME or PROOF into skin, press a warm wet washcloth onto face and let the steam coax dirty oils out while fresh oils seep in. Repeat a few times, then finish with a gentle wipe. Oil dissolves oil; this approach works if you do it with consistency. We use this "no-splash" cleaning technique at the end of every day to maintain happy, supple skin.
And I would be remiss to not link you to Ayuvedic approaches to calming skin inflammation, otherwise known as a pitta imbalance. Ayurveda is the science of self-healing. Tallow is highly prized for easing skin disorders.
Please take the time to patch test our products on a small area of skin to check for any reaction to the ingredients.
