Holistic dermatology involves using natural products and remedies to treat many skin conditions. There are many products that exist in nature that can be recommended by your dermatologist to treat itching, inflammation, infectious, and immune-related skin conditions.

Wrinkles can be treated with carotenoids (found in certain vegetables), green tea, feverfew, coffee berry, and olive oil. Many of these are antioxidants that can reduce the oxidant effects of the sun, while others have natural anti-wrinkle and anti-aging properties that directly improve the appearance of aging skin. Dark spots can be treated with coffee berry, azelaic acid, kojic acid, licorice extract, and vitamin C, which can directly reduce the effects of aging and the sun on these spots.
