To keep the body healthy, it is important to keep an internal balance this is accomplished by supplying the body with food.  Certain foods contain certain minerals and these minerals have an affinity with certain organs.  The subject being, on how to keep the skin from aging , you should know the minerals the skin needs to keep balanced and from aging.  You can keep the balance internally with food or you can feed it topically.  The way to feed it topically is to nourish it with cosmetic preparations that contain botanicals.  Botanicals are plant life that contain the very minerals that our organs need to stay healthy.

The skin is  the largest organ of our body  and to keep it healthy and balanced requires certain minerals to stay young and beautiful these include  silicon, sulphur, iron, manganese and copper.  These minerals that I am talking about are not synthetics made in a man made laboratory.  They are natural minerals that come from nature’s laboratory.  These are the natural chemical elements that are needed to help the skin to repair, rebuild and regenerate.  Drugs and man made synthetics  cannot build new tissue only food can do that.

So what do we look for and how do we know what minerals these plants contain.  There are many plants that contain these minerals needed for the skin.
