Skin Trade: Mother Nature is the most talented artist of them all: how many seconds of your life an unhealthy skin care treatment is stealing from you? Sun beds, laser skin-whitening and the costly pursuit of beauty. The Bridge Magazine analyses the must-have all-embracing skincare product.
A few days ago Caprice walked out nervously from her local clinic dumbstruck, clutching a positive skin cancer result caused by skin whitening treatment.
The thirty something investment banker who lives in London is now wondering how to break the devastating news to her partner and family.
In early April this year, when asked why she wanted The Bridge Magazine to share her experience, she burst into tears and explained: “Whatever the outcome of my skin condition, I would like to prevent people in the UK and from around the world from using deadly skin treatment and cream”.
The pursuit of a beautiful appearance has become an obsession for both sexes in the UK and around the world. We all want to look good to boost our overall confidence. However, how far is too far when it comes to skincare products? Where do we draw the line? Remember, our skin is the largest organ of our bodies, the most susceptible to outside forces, the surface that we present to the world.
According to Dr Trevor Cates: “What we put on our skin should be as clean as what we eat.”

Main Features and Health benefits of Virgin Organic Coconut Oil
Coconut oil has several health benefits, the most important ones being its usefulness in hair care and skin care.
Its prevents Candida, also known as systemic candidiasis, a tragic disease caused by an excessive and uncontrolled growth of yeast called Candida albicans. Coconut provides relief from the inflammation caused by Candida, both externally and internally.
Speeds up healing

Beware!!! No one is safe:
Unlike certain foods and drugs, skin care products are not always required to announce the destructive additive carcinogens they may contain. The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) may prohibit certain ingredients and misguided labelling, however, your cream’s composition is left to each company’s discretion.
Sadly, many are linked to cancer, hormone disruption, organ toxicity and severe allergies.
Recent distressing news after a study by the Herb Research Foundation revealed that the skin absorbs up to 60 per cent of the chemicals in products that it comes into contact with directly into the bloodstream.
Pros and cons
Unlike other oils, coconut oil has a high melting point: about 24 to 25 degrees Celsius or 76-78 Fahrenheit. Solid at room temperature, it melts only when temperature rises significantly.
If you are using coconut oil for topical purposes, especially hair care, just melt the oil (if it is solid) by keeping the bottle in the sun or soaking it in warm water.
