Did you know a sunburn can cause weight gain? Or simply washing your hair or even putting gas in your car? Sounds strange I know, but your skin’s health can be an unwanted distraction to your body.
When your skin becomes injured or has to fight off toxins it diverts your body’s attention for burning fat and eliminating waste. Your immune system becomes overworked and your metabolism becomes less efficient.
Say, for example, you have a sunburn. Your immune system goes to work by sending nutrients to the area to treat the inflammation. This means your body works overtime to defend against the ailment.The harder and longer your body works, the more the ailment weakens and stresses the other SKILL© organs.
So a diminished Skin SKILL© may not directly cause weight gain, but it interferes with your body’s ability to flush out fat and toxins and stop the accumulation of excess fat.
It’s like working 12-hour shifts for several straight days; no matter your strength, eventually you will fatigue and be less efficient at your normal job.
However, if you keep your skin healthy and well supported, it will take less time and effort to heal. A healthy skin also creates a stronger and more protective shield against the onslaught of toxins and pollutants. This is where the right diet comes into play by relying on certain vitamins, minerals, and nutrients that promote stronger, healthier skin from the inside-out.
Your skin is a snapshot of what is going on inside your body. If your outside is not healthy, your inside won’t be either.
