| YOUR SKIN IS YOUR LARGEST ORGAN | Did you know that your skin is your largest organ? No? Well it totally is. In Chinese Medicine your skin is connected to the Lungs (the most superficial of the organs) and it shows exactly what’s going on in your internal space. Got any redness? Definitely some Heat pent up inside. Any pus or fluids? Probably some Damp going on in there somewhere. Not only that though, but it is incredibly absorbent. In fact, 70% of what you put on your skin is absorbed into your body. That could be skin care, make-up, medicated creams, washing powders, cleaning products or external pollutants like car exhaust. How freaking crazy is that, amiright? When I found that out a little while ago I started making some pretty big swaps in the products that I used. I did this all the way through my life, from what I washed my clothes in to what moisturiser I used (in case you were wondering I make my own mix of sweet almond oil + lavender oil). How do you feel about your skin? Have you made any changes in the products you use?
