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 come from a congested liver, imbalanced gut flora, hormonal changes, and inflamed digestive system. If these systems are not working well, then toxins can build up in the body and the only place they can escape to is the skin. Long term skin solutions begin from the inside out.
