Not all skin injuries are cuts and scrapes. Heat, friction and pressure can cause skin injuries like burns, sunburn and blisters. A burn is a traumatic skin injury caused by a heat source like scalding liquid or a hot pot, a radia ... tion source like the suns rays, an electrical source like open wiring or a chemical source like acid. Depending on the severity of the burn, treatment can include wound care and pain management, skin grafting, intravenous fluids or cosmetic surgery. Some burns can form blisters, which actually act as a protective, fluid-filled buffer for damaged skin. Blisters also form from skin conditions like eczema and friction sources like ill-fitting shoes. Keeping the area clean with antibiotics and a dressing or bandage is usually enough to heal a blister.

It took me way too long to realize that I have a severe reaction that looks like acne rosacea when I use products containing natural forms of salicylates like Willow Bark or Aspen Bark. I can use drug store salicylic acid ok, but in products with naturally sourced salicylic acid I break out in a severely bumpy, red, inflamed, hot rash that looks like acne rosacea. I couldn’t figure out why my skin got so much worse using natural acne skin care lines. I eventually went very minimal just using oils like jojoba and rosehip seed oil thanks to the LoveVit. My skin was doing pretty awesome until I thought I’d add in a serum that promised big things, and in doing so I discovered my extreme sensitivity after talking to an aesthetician. I was oblivious to this before since I was just used to my skin being bad and irritable. Then I put the pieces together and realized when my skin was at it’s worst before and wouldn’t heal I was using products containing Willow Bark. Just wanted to share this in case someone else has this. Willow Bark and Aspen Bark are highly featured in natural combinations for acneic skin. Look for them in the ingredient list of anything labeled with Salicylic Acid. Some people do great with them, some people like me have a severe dermal freak out.
