Your Skin – An Important Window to Inner Health!
Skin health is more than skin deep and almost all dermatological issues from accelerated aging to autoimmunity have their roots in the internal biochemistry of the body. On the other hand, a radiant countenance and a glowing complexion are not only signs of attraction and beauty, but are also a deeper reflection of overall health and well-being. The skin is thus an opportunity for us to assess, diagnose and correct internal biochemical breakdown and ideally take corrective measures for beautification and overall wellness and longevity.
This means topical health conditions heretofore regarded as cosmetic and superficial can be decoded as messages, and if we “speak skin” we can use the condition of our largest organ to “read” the inside workings of the body.
Once we become fluent in the language of the skin, as manifested by its health and appearance, we can use this seemingly inert covering as a portal to our inner biochemistry, helping slow down and eliminate internal breakdown and preventing degenerative issues from developing down the road.
