Sometimes referred to as the third lung, the skin covers the entire surface of our bodies, making it the largest organ of elimination. Due to its large surface area, the skin can eliminate through it's pores as much waste as the bowels, kidneys, and lungs together. This elimination is in the form of acidic toxins, gases, and mucus. If the colon, kidneys, or liver is backed up with toxic overload, the skin has to eliminate a large part of the waste. If you are experiencing rashes, pimples, boils, acne, eczema, or abcesses, this indicates that your organs of elimination may be unable to keep up with detoxification.
A great way to facilitate the process of detoxification via elimination is by drinking water, aerobic exercise, perspiration and eating fiber through fresh vegetables and fruits.
Our skin needs nourishment inside out! We need to regularly steam our face to open up pores and remove toxic ingredients by using mud masks and a good toner to close the pores immediately after cleansing.
Good sleep and rest is imperative for good skin.
