Skin Detox; A Simple Guide
Your skin is your body's largest organ. It plays an important role in elimination and detoxification.
Your skin reveals what's going on inside you, therefore, it is important to detox for beautiful skin, inside and out.
When the colon becomes overloaded, by over eating for example, skin will attempt to compensate and release toxins. Or if the liver can not efficiently filter impurities the skin will, try to release the excess toxins.
The skin detoxifies by sweating and may create rashes or boils in the process.
Skin also plays a role in absorption and ingestion of both toxins and nutrients.
Your skin may eliminate toxins through oil glands that often become acne.
Skin often reflects emotional states and hormonal balance. Stress reactions and imbalanced hormones show up as spots, blemishes and poor skin texture.
Luckily your skin renews itself naturally, on a daily basis, your skin creates new cells and releases old dying cells. Helping to create a new, clean start.
