Your epidermis is showing! (Tehe) The epidermis is the outermost layer of your skin and is the largestorgan in your body. Yes, the skin a living organ, just like the liver, heart, and kidneys, and its function is quite vital. The skin serves as a barrier to the external environment, helps to regulate body temperature, and transmits various sensations, such as heat, cold, and pressure.
The skin also functions as a way out when the body becomes toxic, especially if the liver, lungs, kidneys, and gut are already stressed. It’s the biggest organ; so, if the body needs to get rid of something quickly, it can detox through the skin. This can manifest as various skin conditions, such as a rash, acne, eczema, dry skin, or itchiness.
True health comes from the inside out. What you put IN your body is more significant than what you put ON your body. While natural creams, scrubs, and masks can facilitate radiant skin (please ditch the highly processed commercial skin products!), adequate nutrition and hydration play a far bigger role in creating vibrant skin and a smooth complexion.
Tips for enhancing skin health: drink warm lemon water upon awaking, eat healthy fats (like omega-3 fats, avocados, and coconut oil), minimize processed sugar, gluten, and dairy, consume probiotics, and rhythmic belly breathing.
