What Are Toxins to Our Skin?
Toxins are anything that can be damaging, and comes in many forms, such as - air, food, products etc. Our skin is composed of 3 essential layers- Epidermis, Dermis and Subcutaneous layers. The Epidermis is the outer layer of the skin and is our protector. The Dermis is the middle layer of skin. Some of its components include sweat glands, sebaceous glands, and collagen. The Subcutaneous layer consists of fat cells that help to insulate.
When we are exposed to toxins whether topical or ingested, they lodge into our cells and overwhelm our immune system. The body’s natural defense is to push toxins out through sweat, pimples and blackheads. When our bodies absorb toxins we push it out through our skin creating acne and other skin conditions. Most people with acne are eliminating something toxic from their bodies.
You can detox the skin through facials and products. Activated Charcoal is an excellent way to detox, cleanse and reenergize the skin.
