Health Skin: A Mirror of Health

 Having health skin, hair and nails is a sign of a healthy body. These outer coverings reflect health on the inside. More specifically, our skin gives us signs of intestinal function which includes how well we digest our food, absorb nutrients, and how effectively waste products are eliminated. Good skin also depends on good hydration with clean water, optimal thyroid function and also includes ingestion of healthy fats from our diet such as olive oil and good fish oils high in EPA and DHA. Physiology supports the fact that gentle skin brushing on a regular basis removes dead skin cells while improving skin circulation and stimulating lymph drainage. The lymph system importantly assists the body in removing cellular waste. Don’t forget exercise and sweating that help improve both circulation and removal of by-products.

Remember beautiful skin is the outward sign of inner health.
