Skin irritation can occur for a variety of different reasons, and it doesn’t discriminate. Anyone can develop skin irritations throughout their lifetime. Some can be temporary, caused by allergic reactions to certain products. Chronic skin conditions, however, can require extensive care to help restore a healthy balance.
Chronic and temporary skin conditions include:
- Keratosis Pilaris
- Morgellons disease
- Actinic keratosis
- Contact dermatitis
The majority of these are generally temporary and can often clear up on their own without any extensive treatment. Other conditions, such as Morgellons disease, will require a treatment plan that will be ongoing. Depending on the type, chronic skin conditions can lead to bumps, sores, pimples or other rashes.
For many who are diagnosed with skin conditions, finding treatment can be a long and arduous path – but it doesn’t have to be.
What can a supplement for skin irritation do?
There are supplements for many common ailments or deficiencies. They are designed to give the body a little extra help when fighting off infection or the debilitating symptoms of a chronic condition. When it comes to skin irritation, many plant-based remedies have traditionally been used as a topical treatment, but some can also be ingested to support healing from the inside out.
The MRG Derm Supplement
MakeWell’s MRG Derm supplement is formulated with a well-researched mixture of three main ingredients. The supplement is made without the use of fillers, scents or any extra colourants so that the ingredients consumed are in the purest form.
Black cumin extract
Black cumin extract is a part of a plant family known as the Runculaceae. In one study, black cumin was said to have been used in ancient medicine for a wide variety of symptoms, such as:
- Gastric upset
- Skin diseases
Otherwise known as black cumin seed, the black cumin plant is rich in vitamins and minerals that help the body run at its best. With high levels of zinc, chrome, manganese, selenium and B vitamins, it was hailed the ‘gold of the pharaohs’ because of its rich medicinal properties.
Gotu cola extract
Gotu cola extract comes from the Centella asiatica plant. This extract is widely used in Ayurvedic medicine and traditional Chinese medicine. Due to its high medicinal properties, it has been a popular ingredient in many different treatments.
The reason gotu cola extract has been successful in the treatment of certain medical conditions is because of its active compounds. The plant is high in essential oils and asiaticosides, both of which have been proven to help with skin irritation. It has also been used in cosmetic surgery to help reduce the appearance of ageing skin as well as in the healing of wounds.
Pantothenic acid (Vitamin B5)
Another ingredient in Make Well’s skin care supplement is pantothenic acid, otherwise known as vitamin B5. The main job of vitamin B5 is to help the body synthesize certain coenzymes, specifically coenzyme A. The body relies heavily on coenzyme A to synthesize fatty acids to help regulate energy storage. When it comes to the skin, pantothenic acid plays a huge role in healing.
Vitamin B5 helps keep skin cells healthy, leaving skin soft and hydrated. It does this by encouraging repair when needed and taking moisture from the body and the air.
Using the above ingredients with no added fillers is what makes Make Well’s MRG Derm supplement so effective and a good addition to support skin health.
