We’ve all heard the saying that “beauty is only skin deep,” but the fact is that having beautiful healthy skin is so important to people that globally almost 100 billion dollars are spent on skin care products. And that’s not counting the 571 billion spent on cosmetics. About 65% of women use skin care products daily and so do about 37% of men.
So people are spending a lot of money to put things on their skin to try to keep it healthy. The problem is that most problems with skin health are not just “skin deep.” The health of the skin is completely dependent on the health of other organs of the body, including the digestive system, liver and gallbladder, circulatory system, kidneys and the endocrine glands (especially the pituitary, pineal gland, thyroid, and reproductive glands). So, chronic skin problems are never just skin deep; they always indicate deeper problems with a person’s health.
Furthermore, our skin responds to our thoughts and emotions. Just consider how much the skin of a person who is in love glows or how pale the skin becomes when someone goes into severe shock, and you’ll realize that skin is also telling us a lot about our mood and emotions.
All of this means that one should never try to correct a skin condition by just using topical treatments. We should always look deeper, working to create healthy skin from the inside out, not the outside in.
In this month’s Sunshine Sharing Hour, we’ll discuss how you can improve the health and beauty of your skin by supporting your body’s detoxification systems, endocrine glands, and overall health. We’ll also talk about using natural products on your skin, too, but as a secondary step to healthy skin.
