As a health food store,
core philosophy involves a holistic approach to physical wellbeing. While we believe that true beauty comes from within, the truth of the matter remains that the society we live in still very much bases its initial opinion on appearances.

as one of their major appearance concerns. These include:Read More »

Although commonly thought of as a teenage problem, acne actually afflicts a large number of adults. Characterized by excessive sebum production and breakouts, acne is normally the result of hormone imbalances in both females and males. Environmental triggers include food allergies,
cosmetic and medications such as corticosteroids.
Eczema on the other hand is normally associated with young children but is also frequently diagnosed in adults. In fact, according to statistics, a whopping 20% of the entire population suffers from atopic dermatitis (the most common form of eczema). The condition is characterised by dryness, recurring skin rashes, skin edema/swelling, redness, crusting, flaking and blistering.
In contrast to eczema, psoriasis normally affects the extensor aspect of the joints
. The condition is non-contagious and typified by red scaly patches (called psoriatic plaques) on the skin. These patches are areas of inflammation and excessive skin production. Excessive skin accumulates at these sites and becomes silvery-white in appearance.
Varicose veins are otherwise normal veins that have become enlarged and twisted which appear to be bulging under the skin. It normally coincides with a dull ache and persistent itching of the skin above the affected area. Sufferers may also experience swelling of the feet and ankles due to stagnant blood leaking from the veins, as well as tiredness after prolonged periods of standing.
