Did you realize your skin is a major organ?
Beauty on the inside and out
By Maria Albuquerque and Cindy Miller

Health tip: Did you realize your "SKIN" is a major organ?
Through our skin we experience the world both on the inside and out.
For example when we feel pain and pleasure our body senses this.
When we are cold are skin turns blue, when our skin is irritated it turns red.
Our skin relays the changes between the external and the internal.
These changes are responses that are triggered to help restore balance between
our interior and exterior.

Our skin is the indicator for our health. Looking pale, dark circle under our eyes,
flushed, red cheeks, hives are all signs of how well we are doing. Our skin is linked to many bodily functions from blood circulation to releasing toxins. When something goes wrong on the inside our body tries to get our attention through our skin. It is important to notice and recognize the changes.

Our skin is our physical container but it protects the flesh and our body. When we are cut it has the wonderful ability to heal. When we have a splinter and are evaded by bacteria
extra blood flow is sent to that area so that the white blood cells and nutrients start healing action.

Many skin problems can be addressed by healthy nutrition. Treating the inside will result in a healthier outside. Usually when you feel good your skin looks good.

Skin is your body's first line of defense it filters the suns rays and keeps out water and toxic substances. It is sometimes called our second kidney because of the million of sweat glands that secrete toxins from our body.

Nutritional support is very important. Copper found in dark leafy veggies, shellfish and whole grains, iron, vitamin C found in fruits and veggies are required for the production
of collagen, which is the glue, that keeps our skin together. Much research has shown
bioflavonoids especially OPCs are powerful antioxidants which help stabilize collagen.

ü The thinnest skin which measures 1/25 of an inch is our eyelids.

ü We shed about 40 pounds of skin over our lifetime.
ü Men really are thicker-skinned than woman!
