The Skin

The Skin

Your skin is like a beautiful flowering plant that thrives in the right soil, in the right location, given the right nutrients and watered regularly. If you want to radiate from the inside and out and flourish, then take care of your inside (your soil) and the outside (your skin) by adopting the correct daily routines.

The skin is the largest organ of the body, protecting us from the harmful effects in the environment. The skin acts as a thermal regulator, immune modulator, sensory organ and is a very intrinsic communication system. The skin is capable of absorbing vital nutrients as well as eliminating waste from the body. The skin has the inbuilt ability to constantly rejuvenate and repair but if significantly damaged can cause severe dehydration and is life threatening. Severe damage to the skin can also introduce microbes into the blood stream or cause severe blood loss causing death. 
The skin tells us a lot about what is going on within on a physical and emotional level.
