Skin Problems

Why do we get skin problems?

  • Skin problems are usually related to the inside of us, not just the outside. Rashes, pimples, and texture of skin all come from the liver and digetsive system. If these systems are not working well then toxins can build up in the body. These toxins must go somewhere and usually come out onto the skin. Long term health solutions begin from the inside out.
