How Diet and Toxins play a role in Skin Health Part 1
By Jen Flanagan
This is an article series I have wanted to write for a long time. We have seen thousands upon thousands of customers come to us over the years for skin issues. Often times when their skin did not get better, it turned out there were internal factors going on.
We have been seeing an increase in those with serious skin issues and so it felt like it was time to address this to create a bigger conversation and thought process.
Skin Care is not always as simple as solely using Skin Care Products. Especially for those with more serious skin conditions, such as rosacea, acne, eczema or fungal skin concerns.
Our bodies are complex. So complex in fact, that we often don’t even realize how what we’re ingesting and what we are being exposed to affects our skin (let alone our bodies as a whole)
Though we would like to think it is as easy as what goes in, simply comes out. It is just not this straightforward.
Sometimes the way these factors affect our skin can be very damaging. Skin is our largest organ and our biggest channel of elimination and often - our last ditch effort in the detoxification process. Our faces are how we present ourselves to the outside world. When we don't feel like we look our best because we are dealing with skin conditions that effect our self esteem, it can be both damaging and debilitating.

In this article series, we’re going to explore the 7 different elimination/detoxification channels and and how this can affect our skin.
There are 7 main channels of elimination/detoxification our bodies use.
Lungs, Lymphatic System, Liver, Kidneys, Colon, Blood, and Skin. Each of these systems work synergistically together to rid the body of toxic wastes, chemicals, pollutants and by-products of the body processes. When these systems and processes work properly, the results can be amazing. We have health, vitality, energy, clear minds and clear skin.
When these systems and processes are not functioning properly and cohesively, the effects of this can wreak havoc on the body and show effects on the skin. Needless to say, if we find ourselves using the best products available, and the best routines available yet we’re still having skin issues, we have to look at internal causes.
Next week we will explore each of these elimination channels more in depth and connect the dots between the different systems and how this can lead to these chemicals, toxins, pollutants and waste backing up into our skin creating the skin issues that we experience, such as rosacea, acne, eczema, dermatitis, dryness, and fungal issues.
