Natural Skin Lighteners and Brighteners

                                                                                                                                                                                         By Mary Alexander-Brum

There is a big demand right now to find natural skin lightening products and remedies to clear hyperpigmentation, acne scars, melasma and injury scars, etc. 

 

Keloid scars along with hypertrophic scars are covered in a separate posting on this site as it is such a stubborn and difficult scar to reverse and general skin lighteners and brighteners will not have much effect.

  

Some products like hydroquinone and benoquin are not recommended unless prescribed by a doctor or dermatologist.  Benoquin is usually prescribed for vitiligo and hydroquinone is a derivative of benzene and can cause itching and redness.  **The FDA declared it carcinogenic so use hydroquinone with caution!

 

Here is a list of some natural products and foods that can be used topically for this purpose. 

1.    Lemon Juice:    This is the most inexpensive but effective preparation for lightening the skin and eliminating dark spots and freckles.  Fresh lemon juice is the best for this however the bottled kind will work too.  Recipe:  1 Tablespoon Each: Lemon Juice, Honey and Almond Oil.  Mix and apply to the face and areas that need lightening and leave on for 15-20 minutes.  Rinse off well and apply toner and moisturize as usual.  Do this every other day.   If done daily the skin will react with forming dry patches and sensitivity like burning and redness.   For the whole body mix 1/2 cup of lemon juice and 1/2 cup of oil and apply all over before a shower or bath. If using honey is an issue for any reason, a combo of lemon juice and almond oil will do a fantastic job as well.  [Honey is a humectant which means it helps the skin to attract and retain moisture and it is antibacterial].

 

2.    Arbutin:   [Extracted from the bearberry plant & prevents formation of melanin] - blocks tyrosinase thereby keeping dark spots from forming.  Arbutin comes in alpha and beta forms and the alpha form has higher stability and is therefore the preferred one of the two.  It does not appear to have any negative side effects and works on all skin types.   However, it is a precursor to hydroquinone so use with caution and check for allergic reactions.

 

 

3.    Sandalwood PowderA very safe skin lightener.  This is also an excellent moisturizing treatment and a mask made with equal amounts of Sandalwood Powder, Lemon Juice and Orange Flower Water (you may use Milk or Cream instead of Orange Flower Water for dry skin as it will give extra moisture) – mix into a thin paste and apply for 15-20 minutes twice a week for a very soothing and safe lightening effect.  Follow with your favorite night cream or oil.  A teaspoon of sandalwood powder, baking soda (bicarbonate of soda); lemon juice as a scrub will lighten skin on the neck, underarms and any other areas of uneven skin  tone.  Scrub gently and rinse well followed by a good moisturizer.  Caution:  Do not use lemon juice on any areas where the skin is sensitive or if you shaved the underarm area recently.  Wait at least 24 hours after shaving any area before using lemon juice on the skin as it will burn and irritate the skin which is very uncomfortable to say the least.

 

 

 

 

4.    Kojic AcidKojic acid comes from a Japanese mushroom that is the derivative of the process of making Japanese sake (rice wine) and is completely natural.  It can penetrate deep into the skin and is thus able to prevent hyper pigmentation from forming.  Since it is so acidic and drying it will cause major irritation and sensitivity if used daily.  The recommended frequency is 2 or 3 days in-between uses and the soap and cream can be used on separate days, preferably not on the same day as that would be too much acid at one time.  Always follow with a nourishing moisturizing oil or lotion.  If irritation does occur, stop using it for at least one whole week before starting up again and perhaps use then only once or twice a week.  Kojic acid also reverses acne breakouts as it is able to pull out oil from under the skin.  It is great for treating melasma! 

 

5.    GlutathioneGlutathione is an amino acid that works with cysteine and glutamine as a glucose tolerance factor and as an anti-oxidant to neutralize radiation toxicity and inhibit free radicals.  A mouthful I know!  However, it helps to detoxify from heavy metals, cigarette smoke, and cleans the blood from the effects of chemotherapy.   It also whitens the skin when used on the skin in the form of soap and cream.  It is not able to penetrate deeply as other products can but when taken internally together with topical applications will result in lighter skin.  From a health point of view it is a very important detoxifier and necessary to combat pollutants in our bodies from the environment and our lifestyles.  Caution:  Glutatione injections have caused kidney failure and has resulted in uneven discolored patches all over the body for some users.  Since it is not meant to overuse it for whitening purposes the best option is to use enough for health purposes and to choose an alternative method for whitening.

 

6.    Neem oil(Ayurvedic) Neem is the common name of a tree native to the Indian subcontinent.  The scientific name is Azadirachta indica and is part of the mahogany tree family.  Neem has skin lightening and brightening properties perhaps because it is antifungal, anti-parasitic and antibacterial.  The skin is assisted to heal internally (by drinking the leaf juice) as well as applying the oil to the skin.  The best way to use neem topically is in the form of soap and oil added into other oils and lotions as the smell is very unattractive.  The health benefits include:  Excellent for skin disorders like eczema, acne and dermatitis, wound healing, dental health, controlling diabetes, some cancers, hair loss and dandruff.   Used as a main ingredient in pesticides, antifungal/mold growth spray on fruit and vegetable farming.  We can safely say ‘Neem oil is good for your life!’  Use with caution as it is not to be consumed internally unless directed by a medical practitioner.  Neem is becoming the ‘go-to’ oil for a number of skin disorders and for lightening skin spots.

 

 

 

7.    TurmericTurmeric is the yellow color in Indian food.  Used for thousands of years to treat inflammation, digestion issues, liver problems, skin disorders and open wounds.  The active ingredient is Curcumin which is a powerful antioxidant.  Even though turmeric is used for many health problems it is widely used in the East for skin brightening and lightening.  It is the main ingredient used for the wedding mask applied to the skin of the bride to be for a whole week leading up to the wedding.  A variation of this recipe is used:  1 Teaspoon Each Turmeric, Yoghurt or Milk/Cream, Almond Oil.  Mix and apply on all exposed areas like face, arms, legs and feet.  Leave on for at least 25-30 minutes.  Rinse well with lemon juice or apple cider vinegar to remove all traces of yellow stains.

 

 

That is all for now, until next time...

Natural Sunscreens

22-Apr-2016 / Posted by: Mary Alexander-Brum

 

 

 

April, 2016

 

Make Your Own!

 

 

Sunscreens are absolutely necessary in hot sunny weather but are often expensive and usually contain ingredients we would not naturally choose to apply to our skin.

 

Children are mostly exposed to these unwanted ingredients because they sunburn easily and protection will avoid painful sunburn damage and skin cancer which is an ever-increasing threat for them.

 

There are a number of healthy sunscreens available but they are not easily found in regular stores.  Another thing is that very often, healthy skin care products have listed on their labels "No Parabens, Sulphates, Sodium Laurel Sulfate, etc." and yet when reading the label for ingredients there are often other ingredients like Dimethicone which is a man made silicone oil that has been found to make dry skin even drier as it tends to 'sit' on the skin like plastic film creating clogging of the pores as well.  It is used to make the lotion more spreadable and manufacturers really like it for this reason. 

Below at the end of this post is a recipe to make your own.  You may also change the ingredients to strengthen or lower the SPF coverage depending on what is needed.  SPF-35 is about the highest needed for all skin protection.  SPF-15 is recommended for everyone on a daily basis.

Here is a list of ingredients that have natural SPF qualities: 

 

SPF Ingredients:

 

 

Almond Oil- SPF around 5

 

Coconut Oil- SPF 4-6

 

Zinc Oxide [Powder] SPF 2-20 depending on how much used

1Lb.

Red Raspberry Seed Oil SPF 25-50 – [Preferable]  OR  

 

 

Shea Butter – SPF 4-6  (This is also an excellent thickener to avoid a watery lotion)

NATURAL SUNSCREEN RECIPE   

 

1/3 Cup Bees Wax or Shea Butter – Bees Wax can be clogging as it is comedogenic, Shea Butter will not clog the pores and is in a solid state when cold – choose accordingly depending on your skin type if oily or dry.  Personally my choice is shea butter for this.

 

1/3 Cup Organic Coconut Oil OR *Red Raspberry Seed Oil or Carrot Seed Oil [SPF will vary]

 

1/3 Cup Zinc Oxide, powder form (Choose type for skincare use - pharmaceutical)

 

Mix together in a food processor or by hand using a wooden spoon and a flat spatula and store in a clean container.  This will last for months and even longer in the refrigerator!

*Raspberry Seed Oil is preferable as Carrot Seed Oil is still being researched for SPF strength

 

 

That is all for now, until next time..

Natural Antibiotics - Pic: Oregano Bush

21-Apr-2016 / Posted by: Mary Alexander-Brum

  Natural Antibiotics

 

March 30, 2016

 

Antibiotics have been misused so much during the last 20 years for the sake of convenience and when unsure if a sickness is serious or not.  Children more than anyone else are prescribed antibiotics, often at the request of parents, for various medical conditions like ear infections, upset stomach, etc.  As a result of overuse, antibiotics are no longer effective enough when serious bacterial infections need to be eradicated.  In the last 5 years antibiotics are given mostly for a serious infection. 

 

Thankfully there are natural antibiotics that are extremely effective for fighting infections and some are also antiviral and antiparasitic.  I am listing below some of these that have proven to be extremely effective for both children and adults.  I am also suggesting products that have good reviews and worth reading for more information from first-hand users.   Be advised, these are considered as ‘folk medicine’ despite many successful research findings and testimonials. 

   

1.    Oil of Oregano:  This has to be the first one to mention as I have a very personal success story of a chronic, painful and disabling food poisoning episode that lasted over 19 years.  None of the antibiotics I was given to fight h.pylori (helicobacter pylori) or any other bacteria that could have caused my condition as well, were successful until I used Oil of Oregano for 2 weeks and finally I was rid of this invasive bug that lodges in the lining of the intestinal tract [or the stomach for some] and remains there until something powerful enough comes along to destroy it.  Studies have shown that Oil of Oregano is powerful enough to destroy bacteria in sewage!  Oil of Oregano is taken for food poisoning and destroying intestinal parasites, flu and cold virus, canker sores, sinus infections, UTIs, skin disorders like psoriasis and dandruff, etc.  It is also a powerful insecticide.  See more at wedmd below...

2.    Grapefruit Seed ExtractThis is made of the pulp and seed of the grapefruit.  It is used to destroy fungal and staph infections, E.coli, salmonella, parasites, herpes, candida, etc.  It is extremely bitter (take with some juice) and will make you shudder but it is a safe and effective antibiotic that I have used many times with great success especially after eating contaminated food at a restaurant. 

3.    Black Walnut Hull:  (Fresh juice of unripe walnut hulls)   Contains Juglone and Iodine which are toxic and able to destroy harmful bacteria like ringworm, athlete’s foot, etc. “It is also important to understand that many parasites do not confine themselves to our intestinal tracts. There are at least 1000 species of parasitic organisms that can live in humans, including Giardia, flatworms, hookworms, ringworms, nematodes, and a whole host of funguses. Incidentally, medical labs only check for about 50-60 of them. Some encamp in the liver, and others, such as Cryptococcus gatti, invade the lungs, nervous system, soft tissue, lymph nodes, and joints. Anti-parasitic and anti-fungal herbs such as black walnut (not to mention heavy doses of garlic) can help drive all of them out of the body.”   [http://jonbarron.org/] 

 

 

4.    Wormwood(Artemisia vulgaris) – Treating Crohn’s Disease, malaria, hepatitis, cancer, inflammation and infections by fungi, bacteria and viruses.  It is the main ingredient of the famous French drink called Absinthe.  Do not use Wormwood without direction of a medical practitioner and do not use for more than 2 days in a row unless advised otherwise. 

 

 

 

 

5.    Neem Oil and LeavesFrom India - Neem oil is extremely efficient in treating skin and scalp disorders and infections without injuring the body in any way.  Even though the smell is odoriferous the benefits far outweigh the inconvenience of this and it is easily masked by the addition of a fragrant essential oil like Rose or Jasmine oil.  Used on the skin to treat eczema and as an anti-aging and deep moisturizing treatment the juice on the other hand treats ulcers and infections internally with the antioxidants able to neutralize free radicals that cause cancer and other chronic illnesses.

 

 

6.    Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide:      Please note that it has to be ‘Food Grade’ and it can be purchased at a health food store or online.  The regular pharmacy grade hydrogen peroxide we all used for years contains toxic preservatives, stabilizers and heavy metals.  There are so many testimonials of reversing serious medical conditions as well as less serious but upsetting and discomforting disorders that lower our immune systems like cold sores, sinus infections, fungal infections, warts, rashes, intestinal parasites, etc. 

 

 

    For more information on food grade hydrogen peroxide see this link here:

 http://www.foodgrade-hydrogenperoxide.com/sitebuildercontent/sitebuilderfiles/TheTruthAboutFGHP.pdf

 

7.    Bentonite Clay (Montmorillonite) I use this once a week in case I ingested any bacteria from eating raw salads and fresh fruit.  My 19+ years of coping with chronic spastic colitis from h.pylori infection is the reason I am so super cautious.  Also, there is a toxin in crops called aflatoxin and it is unavoidable sometimes to consume as it is in the freshest produce even organically grown food.  A great detoxifier but also excellent for use topically as an anti-acne mask to draw out impurities and oil from underneath the surface.  Since it is so drying a good moisturizer afterwards is highly recommended. I use a few drops of Pure Argan Oil or Ozonated Olive Oil and a daytime moisturizer with a SPF-35 for sun protection and to discourage age spots and hyperpigmentation – which is Melasma in my case.

   

 

As you can see you have many choices when it comes to using a natural antibiotic or antiviral.  There are still more to share but for now we are going to concentrate on these ones as they have given me great support during my food poisoning infection phase that lasted 19 years! 

Please do see a doctor before any treatment to make sure you are treating the correct condition.  Also, follow your doctor's recommendations first to recover from a severe infection.

 

That's all for now, until next time...

Skin Rashes

13-Mar-2016 / Posted by: Mary Alexander-Brum

  

Skin Rashes

 

 There are so many subjects for discussion but I am choosing to discuss the issue of skin rashes.  This is a subject I get a lot of questions about and I think a good place to start. 

 

SEE A DOCTOR.  Usually this is some kind of infection in the body and a doctor must diagnose it first in order to treat it correctly.  You can only treat a medical condition correctly when you know the cause of it. 

 Here is what you can do to help heal yourself faster: (After seeing the doctor)

 

1.  Wash the area - use liquid soap with tea tree oil, Dr. Bronner's Tea Tree Oil Soap is what I use.

You may add Tea Tree Oil (below) into your regular body washes and shampoo instead, this is what I do but the liquid TTO soap is perfect when I need it in a hurry and it works so well for rashes, acne and you can also use it as a shampoo for dandruff and other scalp conditions. As always, do check for allergic reactions when you first start using it even though it is a natural product.

  Click on the image for more info.  Use only wash cloths and towels that have been freshly washed - do not reuse any of these before washing.

2.  Apply calamine lotion as soon as possible to cool and calm the skin. 

  

3.  Sleep on freshly washed pillow cases and sheets or use a clean towel over your pillow each night while you have the rash.  Use bleach in your washing solution if possible, ideally you should use white pillow cases so it is easy to bleach.

  

4.  Wear freshly washed shirts and sweaters up against the affected skin.

  

5.  Diet:  Assist by eliminating foods that contain sugar, vinegar, mushrooms, pickled condiments, etc. as these feed the yeast which might be a cause.

  

+ + eliminate fried foods and full fat cheeses including junk food.

  

DO eat at least once a day a fresh salad (tomatoes, cucumbers, lettuce, spinach, parsley, cabbage, celery and feta cheese, to name a few) with a low fat salad dressing.  Eat low fat protein.  Eat plain yoghurt with a little honey or maple syrup (not too much sweetener) and fresh berries.  This will give you probiotics in your diet.  If you don't eat yoghurt, purchase a probiotic and take this with some liquid as directed on the label.  Other options: Eat low fat soups and stews, etc..

 

6.  Drink 6-8 glasses of water daily.  You could sometimes add a little juice into your water if it gets boring.  It is important to drink a lot of liquid to help flush out fungal die-off from antibiotics your doctor gave you.  Drink at least one glass of warm water with fresh lemon juice to help flush impurities from the liver.  You may add a teaspoon of honey or maple syrup.

   

7.  Apply aloe vera gel to the area of skin that is affected.  You could also keep it in the refrigerator if the skin is hot and inflamed.  It will both cool and heal the skin.  More info -  If you have the fresh aloe leaf plant, break off a piece of the leaf and wash clean, drain the resin out from this (it is not used) cut the leaf in half and scrape the gel out with a knife and use immediately. [Do remember to drain the resin out of the cut leaf before using the gel - this resin is not to be included].

    

8.  Get lots of sleep and rest.  Try to get at least 8 hours of sleep at night to help your body heal itself.  One drop of lavender essential oil rubbed under your nose area or 1 drop on your pillow will usually help you sleep peacefully though the night.  It is also excellent when you have a headache or feel anxious.

 

 

That is all for now.  Until next time…

 Take charge of your health and help yourself heal, it takes courage…

Job-Related Heavy Metal Detox Cleanse

28-Dec-2014 / Posted by: Henry

 

Job-Related Heavy Metal Detox Cleanse

 

December, 2014



A question and answer session describing the natural dissolving of blood clots in the brain from metal and chemical toxicity with Henry Alexander near Cape Town, South Africa.

 

Do you suffer from an Occupational Health condition? 

I am. Although my detox is still a 'Work In Progress', I have made a lot of headway.

 

I hope you can find information here you can use to help clear up your condition.

 

This my story and what I decided to do about it.   

 _______________________________________

 

After years of trying many remedies, I have finally hit the jackpot! I suffered symptoms similar to Candida Albican & Alzheimer’s, not being focused, losing motor control of my muscles, bad breath, weeping eczema, dry eczema, fever, what I thought was Athletes Foot (and later discovered to be acid detoxing between my toes), chronic cold and flu bouts, chronic fatigue, bad teeth (my teeth were becoming soft and brittle), this went on for about 40 years, and then in 2008, I gave up my business because I could not cope with the responsibilities, because of the symptoms, and went to stay on a friend s farm. One day I vomited, and to my shock I smelled photographic chemicals which contain Heavy Metals! This, 30 years after leaving the industry! I went to a hospital for help, and when I related what happened, I was sent to a Clinical Psychologist! After listening to my story the Psychologist said I was psychotic and recommended drug therapy, as I was imagining my symptoms, as these chemicals would not stay in the body that long.

 

I was sent for blood tests and a booking was made for a brain scan to be done. The Psychologist then put me on a course of Resperidon. The drug s effects on me were grogginess   lameness in the legs, unable to walk the next morning for approx. 30 min, I eventually hobbled to another area. Plus severe headache that lasted for an hour after rising. After experiencing the medication for a couple of days, I Googled the drug and found this was not the expected result! [Also known as Risperdal (risperidone) is an antipsychotic medicine. It works by changing the effects of chemicals in the brain. Risperdal is used to treat schizophrenia… http://www.drugs.com/risperdal.html  -  I went back to the Psychologist and was assured that Halopenerol would be better. This drug affected me similarly as the Resperidon. I also Googled this drug and found this too, was not the expected result! [also called GENERIC NAME: haloperidol : DRUG CLASS AND MECHANISM: Haloperidol is an antipsychotic medication. It also is used to control tics and vocal utterances that are part of   Tourette's syndrome

Haloperidol interferes with the effects of neurotransmitters in the brain which are the chemical messengers that nerves manufacture and release to communicate with one another. Haloperidol blocks receptors for the neurotransmitters (specifically the dopamine and serotonin type 2 receptors) on the nerves. As a result, the nerves are not "activated" by the neurotransmitters released by other nerves. Haloperidol was approved by the FDA in 1967 -   http://www.medicinenet.com/haloperidol/article.htm     

I returned for the test results and was told by the psychologist my cholesterol level was 7.6 and the B12 was extremely low. Was told that the low B12 level could be the cause of the symptoms I described to the Psychologist. Then looking at the brain scan result, it showed I had old blood clots/spots (Lacunae Infarct) on the right side of my brain. I was then told I was not psychotic, I have a medical problem and would be treated for that. First the cholesterol and B12 would have to be brought to acceptable levels, and then the blood clots would be dealt with.

 

I accepted the treatment for the cholesterol and B12.     

After about a year I was ready for the treatment to remove the blood clots, the medication offered was Warfarin. I Googled Warfarin and other drugs, but wasn’t happy with putting more chemicals in my body, and decided to not take it, but to look into Alternative Therapies.

[Warfarin is commonly but incorrectly referred to as a blood thinner. It was initially introduced in 1948 as a pesticide against rats and mice, and is still used for this purpose, although more potent poisons such as brodifacoum have since been developed. In the early 1950s, warfarin was found to be effective and relatively safe for preventing thrombosis and thromboembolism in many disorders. It was approved for use as a medication in 1954, and has remained popular ever since; warfarin is the most widely prescribed oral anticoagulant drug in North America.

 

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Warfarin   At this time I also went back to the hospital to ask for another brain scan to see what progress I had made (this, after a year) but the Radiologist told me, because the Lacuna Infarcts were not life threatening they normally skip treatment for people my age. So I don't know what progress I had made.      

Right now, after 2 years, my symptoms are much lighter, my mind is clearer to the extent I now read books (something I could not do for a few years!) and am studying as a form of brain-gym. My memory retention is improving.     

 

In the following months I will detail each of the natural detox protocols I am employing to eliminate the heavy metals that caused the formation of the Lacunae Infarcts on my right brain and will report on the progress I am making. 

 

Until next month, stay well and I wish you Happy Holidays!
