Green Hickory Nuts and Skin Problems

Since skin problems are of many types and can be caused by a number of different factors, it is hard to judge which ones in particular you are looking for information on. Most skin ailments would find their most effective cures when their root causes have been established and any underlying medical condition, if any, has been treated. To elaborate, most skin conditions are merely a symptom of an underlying medical condition, which will need to be treated directly in order to cure the skin problem. Solely treating the skin condition may cause the medical ailment to get even worse and also result in the skin ailment reoccurring rather frequently over a period of time. It is also important to remember that the term ‘skin problems’ can mean very different things to two different individuals. For example, while some people may consider wrinkling of the skin a natural course of old age or a natural impact of environment conditions, others may see it as a skin problem that is unnatural and needs to be treated on priority. Acne is one of the most common skin problems and affects almost every individual in or around their teenage years. While most people will normally outgrow their acne problems, some might experience an outbreak well into their 40s and 50s. Women are especially prone to acne till the later years of their lives.

For example, if you are worried about the complexion as well as health of the skin on your face, you could create a face mask by mashing a little fresh cream into an overripe banana. Once the mixture has turned into a soft pulp, add a few strands of saffron to it and leave it to ferment over the course of the night.

There is no specific home remedy that uses hickory nuts to cure any kind of skin problems. The hickory nut, a relative of the pecan nut, is native to North America and is smaller than the pecan. Edible hickory nuts come from only specific species of the hickory tree known as the shag bark and the shell bark hickory trees. These nuts are usually used in cooking and baking and are more prized for their flavor and taste than the pecan nuts. Hickory nuts are also a source of mono-unsaturated fat and of protein.
