(NaturalNews) The skin is the largest organ in the body and the outer layer that we present to the world. It is a truly remarkable organ in its direct reflection of what is going on inside your body. It weighs approximately eight pounds and stretches 22 square feet with about 300 million cells. Laid out in a line, your skin contains about 45 miles of nerves.

You shed about 600,000 particles of skin every hour, which weighs around 1.5 pounds per year, so by the age of 70, you will have shed about 105 pounds of skin. In healthy people, the body produces an entire new skin layer every 28 days and is thickest on the soles of the feet and thinnest on the eyelids.

Engaging in a lifestyle that is against your bodys' natural constitution creates an imbalance and leads to toxicity, inevitably manifesting in skin conditions. Since the skin is the body's largest organ and exposed to most of the natural and man-made dangers, it is understandable that it is susceptible to more problems than any other organ in the human body. For those suffering from a skin condition, realizing that skin problems are extremely common might bring some comfort.

The skin is our body's detoxification pathway where it pushes toxins up through its three million sweat glands, emitting up to three gallons of sweat per day depending on the level of activity. It is; however, busy at all times, regulating our temperature and protecting us from the outside world while absorbing and processing essential vitamin D.

Toxins manifest as skin conditions that can be blotchy, rough, painful, discolored, inflamed, dry and wrinkly and make us self-conscious about our appearance. Most skin issues begin at the cellular level, from psoriasis, acne, eczema, dry skin, to the natural signs of aging. No matter how these issues outwardly express themselves, in most natural healing systems, they are all looked at as internal toxicity problems.

For the many people with skin issues, their first instinct and Big Pharma's recommendation is to purchase expensive and sometimes dangerous medicated lotions with the promise that the condition will disappear. These medicated lotions and creams are full of harmful ingredients, often causing the skin to react with more problems, sending them back to the doctor and spending more money. However, what is really going on has more to do with an imbalance from the inside, centered around a toxic reaction causing inflammation that can very often be healed naturally. The ultimate truth is that no cream or treatment can do for your skin what a healthy lifestyle can. By eating right and protecting your skin from damage, you will visibly see your skin looking healthier and younger no matter your age.

Most often, by simply adding nutrient dense foods into the diet and eliminating allergenic and highly processed foods, there is an overall shift in your health and therefore, the appearance of the skin. Ever notice how healthy and happy people are who have that complexion? You can too.
