As the years pass on, and more information pops up on the internet, it is now becoming no surprise to anyone that these steroid skin creams have a slew of drawbacks. Growing up, these creams were my go-to source whenever my skin was acting a fool. Whenever there was a rash or some other inflammation going on, I would just dab a little on the spot and call it a day. Not once did I think these creams could be wreaking havoc inside of me, every time it was applied. The thought of it damaging vital organs never, ever crossed any of my families’ minds, until I started turning to the Google to see what alternatives and information they had for me.
Good thing I did because there were a couple of things that I wish I had known from the get-go, but I guess it’s better late than never: some of the most commonly reported side effects of steroid cream include thinning skin, loss of pigment at the application site, and the development of stretch marks. Rare but serious potential side effects of steroid cream include weakening of the immune system, menstrual irregularities, and organ damage.
Going through almost a year’s worth of a full body detox cleanse, one thing I can agree a hundred and fifty percent with is the damage it did to my overall immune system, but that is also thirty years of its use. Everything has gotten better thanks to going with what nature has to offer me, and Victoria Girard shows us the way. She has four safe alternatives so you no longer have to rely on heavily toxic cream concoctions:
The first being Red Light Therapy which repairs, heal, stimulate cellular activity, and boost collagen production. This natural anti-aging alternative fights aging gently, non-invasively, and without damaging the skin.
Ayurvedic Skin Care: Research suggests that many Ayurvedic ingredients have the ability to reduce wrinkles, diminish age spots, promote a more even skin tone, and renew and refresh the skin.
Facial Exercises: The musculature system under your facial skin is extremely intricate and by working specific muscles correctly you can prevent sagging while restoring firmer and tighter skin.
Plant oils: including argan oil, rosehip seed oil, avocado oil, coconut oil, maracuja oil, and kukui nut oil nourish and replenish the skin. They have been shown to plump up the skin with nutrient dense properties which infuse moisture and wake up your cells and collagen processes.
