Flawless skin is a thing of beauty. We coddle it, we nourish it, try to improve it. Yet we fail to realize that skin is the great protector. It’s outer layer, the epidermis is thinner than Saran Wrap. It is designed to serve as a sturdy barrier to hold moisture in as well as keep unwanted water out. On the surface, dead, compacted, and sloughing cells add a tough coat of armor. But through its cells, live and dead, our own body’s oils can run through it while simultaneously producing essential Vitamin D.
Skin should always glow, especially when all the detoxification organs optimally function together. No toxin requires exit through the skin organ unless a toxicity problem arises internally, burdening the liver, kidneys, lymph, colon and lungs. The cause of many skin blisters, rashes, hives, and acne are mere indicators that the body’s internal detoxification organs are undernourished while exposure to chemicals and other environmental toxins have no route to exit, but through the skin.
Additionally, insufficient intake of essential fatty acids, dysfunctional fat emulsification, digestion and assimilation, leads the skin to become dry and irritable. Two substances maintain lubrication of the skin, water and more importantly, oil. Unfortunately, mainstream media incorrectly informs the greater public to avoid fats and oils as much as possible leaving our skins deficient of its most valued natural moisturizers.
Optimal skin health requires the liver, kidneys, lymph, lungs and colon fully ready to excrete any chemical toxin out of the body. If you have less than perfect skin or are exposed to chemical toxins from your lotions, water, food or air, investigate which of your detoxification organs require nutritional support.
