Your skin. It’s seemingly obvious that we only have one organ that covers the entirety of our body, but the reality of it is that it actually regenerates itself in a fairly short time frame. The research shows that it takes anywhere between 2-4 weeks for you to be wearing a whole new suit of armour. The time it takes depends largely on your overall health- so eat your veggies!
Your skin. It’s your body’s largest organ, it is a physical barrier between your insides and what’s outside, it’s an elimination organ. Which means that when you eat crappy food, the junk can be filtered out of your body via it’s largest organ. This can present in the form of rashes, eczema or other skin interruptions such as acne. Your skin absorbs everything it is exposed to and your body needs to excrete the things it absorbs that it doesn’t have a use for. Air pollution, excess vitamin D, chemicals, preservatives, artificial colours & fragrances, they all have no use to the body and will be exiting it via one route or another.
Your skin. Ease the burden on your body by avoiding as many of these pollutants in the first place by choosing to put protective, preservative free products on your skin. Arbonne, Lush as well as these brands are a great place to start! Always check out the ingredients & don’t be afraid to ask questions. Your liver begins to process things absorbed through the skin in just a matter of minutes. What goes on your skin is in your body that fast.
Your skin. How often do we take the time to appreciate it? Expressing gratitude for that which it protects us from, for a canvas upon which we can brush fingers and feel, for every dimple, mole & scar telling the story of where we’ve taken our physical body in this lifetime.
Your skin. Invest in it.
