Truth or Myth - Are You What You Eat?
The human body requires nearly two-thirds of all the elements currently identified by science to maintain proper health. Balancing these minerals is vital yet complex. The skin, the body's largest organ, is responsible for maintaining body temperature and excreting waste. The appearance of the skin is a diagnostic tool used by medical professionals and patients because it is an indicator of how effectively the body is ridding itself of waste and impurities.
If the body isn't getting enough minerals, the skin will be affected. Minerals are components of the bones, teeth, soft tissue, muscle, blood, and nerve cells - they are vital to overall mental and physical well-being. Dry skin may indicate a mineral deficiency, prohibiting cells from properly retaining moisture.
The skin's mineral balance can be attributed to both minerals ingested and those applied to the skin's surface. For thousands of years, cultures across the world have utilized the natural resources of minerals through hot springs and mineral baths to increase mineral content of the skin. Mineral baths work on the principle of drawing toxins from the body while restoring the body's natural mineral balance. From springs across North America to the Dead Sea, the therapeutic properties of minerals have been used to infuse the skin with nutrients. Topically applied nutrients can also act locally on the surface of the skin to enhance tissue repair and wound healing.
To assist in replenishing the skin from the outside, Evian Affinity has introduced a nutrient rich boost to dry skin with its Velvet-Soft Remineralising Care, a special dry skin nourisher infused with pure Evian water, marula oil and minerals. This unique formula provides moisture-binding minerals and is proven to increase moisture of the skin by 45% after one hour, so skin no longer feels tight.
