You’ve been wearing this garment since before you were born. It grows and ages with you. Magnificently complex, it is the human’s largest organ. This wonderful thing is your skin.
It keeps you warm when it’s cold out and keeps you cool when it gets too hot. It stretches, repairs itself and is even waterproof. It is composed of many sensors, opening a multitude of doors to the outside world. It protects you from the sun, from germs and even helps you get rid of toxins. Rumours have it that it may be your third lung.
For certain specialists, your skin is an open book. It tells them if you have a healthy lifestyle. If your liver is functioning properly or if you have to let up on the cheese fries (junk food). Its pimples and papules, so undesirable, are revealing to those who can read them.
It gives much and asks for little in return. Communicating its needs in a particular manner, it is best to learn how to listen and understand.
- When it becomes rough and dry, it is certainly thirsty.
- If it becomes scaly and crumpled, it is expressing the need for a softer, more natural soap.
- Redness on the cheeks: a cry of alarm to cease hot water showers every morning.
- When the lower jawbone area is covered in brown spots, it is denouncing a possible hormonal imbalance.
No matter what age, size, color or path, it merits your attention, because unlike a factory made garment, you only have one skin and will keep it for life.
