As we get older, many of the concerns we have for our skin are aesthetic ones: wrinkles, spots, and loss of elasticity. These signs can also be highly indicative of our overall internal health, beyond what meets the eye. Our skin is not a simple outer layer which covers and contains our anatomy, but is actually the largest vital organ we possess. It is composed of many complex nerve, gland, and tissue systems that work in synergy to defend the body against disease. Practicing excellent skin health is imperative, not only to retain its radiant and youthful appearance throughout our later years, but also to support its important role as a barrier between ourselves and the environment. The best and easiest way to do this is from the inside out. Thus, an ideal skin care regimen begins with a highly nourishing diet.
