The Liver/Skin Connection
You've probably heard that if you want to improve your skin, you should look at your gut. But did you know the liver has a hand in epidermal issues as well? Because the liver is one of the primary ways your body eliminates toxins, a buildup of toxins in the liver can manifest on your skin. When your liver is congested, your body purges toxins through other ways, like your pores. On top of that, the liver is also responsible for breaking down fat. And when it's not working well, fat can circulate in your bloodstream and end up used by the sebaceous glands instead. This can lead to a stressed-out, congested complexion. So, how can you nurture a healthy liver? According to beauty and nutrition experts, clean eating and avoiding processed and inflammatory foods are key.
