In the last post, I described how skin conditions affect many people, how they can be debilitating and what the general beliefs and approaches are to skin conditions.

A New Perspective

If you were to have a plant in your home and it started to wilt and turn brown, what would you do? Would you paint the leaves and branches green and reinforce the stem with a stick? Most sane people I know would consider what they are putting into the soil, i.e. the nutrition of the plant.

So why is it that when we look to improve the health of the plant we look to its nutrition and when we consider our own health, we do not consider what we put in our mouths?

People today spend £100’s, if not £1,000’s per year on fake tanning products, cosmetics and toiletries and other treatments to look and smell good and to stay looking young. Yet what most do not realise is that the very things they are using are highly toxic and contributing to bad skin and aging skin.

Good Skin – The Factors

So, to improve your skin, you have to improve the health of your internal systems. To do this you need to have optimal:

  • Hydration levels
  • Nutrition
  • Digestive system health
  • Immune system health
  • Detoxification system
  • Elimination system
  • Hormone balance.

Stay tuned for Part 3, when I will explain each factor in detail.
