Are you one of the millions of people that is affected by acne each year? Have you tried natural remedies for skin care?

Did you know acne is the most common skin condition in the United States? Followed by the next leading skin conditions such as cold-sores, hives, eczema, psoriasis and melanoma.

Skin, the human body’s largest organ.

Did you know your skin is the largest organ in the body and acts as a barrier against infection, in addition to other functions?

Your skin consists of three layers of tissue: the epidermis, dermis, and hypodermis. 

Epidermis

On top, is the epidermis, visible layer of skin and it’s constantly being renewed as dead skin cells are shed on a daily basis. 

Dermis

The dermis is the middle layer of skin, found underneath the epidermis.

It’s thickest layer of skin and contains nerves and blood vessels. 

The dermis gives skin its flexibility and strength, according to the Johns Hopkins Medicine Health Library.

Therefore, it’s made up mostly of a protein called collagen that makes skin stretchy and strong.

According to the National Library of Medicine, the roles of the dermis include:

  • Sensing pain and touch.
  • Producing sweat and oils. 
  • Growing hair. 
  • Bringing blood. 
  • Fighting infection. Lymphatic vessels, which drain fluid from the tissues and are an important part of the immune system, are housed in the dermis.  They help ward off infections and other harmful substances.

Hypodermis

The hypodermis — also called subcutaneous fat — is the deepest layer of skin.

This layer is made up mostly of fatty tissue, which helps to insulate the body from heat and cold.

Thus, hypodermis also serves as an energy storage area for fat.  Furthermore, this fat provides padding to cushion internal organs as well as muscle and bones and protects the body from injuries, according to the Johns Hopkins Medicine Health Library.

 

Natural Remedies

Skin

Common skin problems:

Rashes, acne, moles, warts, and cancer.

Taking care of your skin involves being gentle to it, for instance, avoiding injury, protecting it from the sun and making healthy lifestyle choices.  Your skin is a direct reflection of what is going on inside of your body.

Equally important, your liver does a good job filtering out toxins.

When the liver is congested and unable to break down toxins your body makes every effort to purge these toxins through other ways, such as your pores.  Bitter herbs, such as Gentian, activates the liver’s metabolic processes and helps clear insoluble fat material through bile.

Portulaca (Purslane) is an excellent source of Vitamin-A. 

Vitamin-A is a powerful natural antioxidant. 

Here are a few tips you can try to help enhance your skincare regimen.
