They all work in synergy to nourish our body, regenerate our cells, rebalance hormone, hydrate and clear our complexion and take care of our gut. Fair skin is not possible without a well-running digestive system. When our core/gut is out of balance, we can’t digest foods properly; our skin can look dull and prone to blemishes and congested. It is increasingly apparent that skin disorders are connected to problems in the gut. A healthy, fully functioning liver is also crucial to the body’s detoxification process.
The liver is vital for the health of our skin. The skin can become a dumping ground for any toxins that the body is not able to eliminate. When the liver is overworked and less able to eliminate toxic waste products, our skin is in the form of breakouts. So, let’s take care of it too.

Blood is the most essential bodily fluid that carries substances like hormones. To encourage and rebalance all that jazz, few ingredients work wonderfully for our beauty. Let’s focus on them in January to start 2021 with a glorious skin health and tonic core!
