Many of us spend hundreds of dollars a month on expensive skin care products and still do not have the clear, silky smooth skin we desire. But why? Your skin is really a reflection of what is going on inside! And as we near the end of summer, we might want to take a look at what your skin is trying to tell you.
Here are some clues as to why your skin might be acting up:
1. Congested forehead- Do you suffer from tiny bumps on your forehead that are more felt than seen? This often indicates too much stress or an increase in stress levels. This type of breakout can also indicate dehydration and constipation. Your body is telling you to drink more water and flush toxins to eliminate. If you are not eliminating then a build up of excess toxins is likely to blame. Try this Colon cleanse for a quick start.
2. Cystic acne – also known as “undergrounders” because they burrow deep below the skin, and can be quite painful to touch. This type of acne is due to hormonal imbalance. Additionally, your lymph nodes, the guys who help us purify our body of toxins, are backed up. To combat this I suggest eating a more alkaline diet and taking a liver cleanse supplement.
3. Inflammation – general redness and inflammation is likely a reflection of inflammation in your digestive system. Are you constantly in a state of worry? If so, your stomach could be shut down so it won’t break down your food properly. Combat this with a digestive enzyme that contains HCL. Another trick is to eat an anti-inflammatory diet and take a daily Probiotic first thing in the morning.
So… Instead of stressing about covering up your skin, look at your skin issues as a way of your body speaking to you. As always, the body never lies and gives us many clues as to what is going on and how we can improve!
