What is your skin telling you?
At Happy Healthy Women we know everyone wants beautiful, clear, radiant skin. Some people are genetically blessed and are born with skin that is non-reactive and perfectly clear most of the time, some people have to work at it.
Your skin is your body’s largest, and fastest growing organ. Adults have around 10kg of skin. Not only is this skin a great protective device for all of your internal organs, it is also an educative reflection of what is going on inside your body.
- ACNE may be a symptom of many imbalances within the body including hormonal imbalances, high levels of toxicity (diet, alcohol, smoking, stress etc) and or high levels of inflammation.
- ECZEMA/DERMATITIS usually relate to inflammation within the body which can be caused or exacerbated by diet, contact with irritants (such as detergents, soaps, sunscreen and moisturisers), stress, lack of quality sleep, alcohol or smoking.
- PSORIASIS is an autoimmune condition. Autoimmune conditions are associated with an immune system that is over reacting and launching unnecessary inflammatory responses against the body. For some people this presents itself through the presence of psoriasis. Most autoimmune conditions flare up due to stressful situations, an inflammatory diet/lifestyle or an infection such as strep throat.
