Healthy Skin for the Summer Months
According to Chinese Medicine
The heat of the summer months tends to dry out our skin. Top priority is to stay hydrated, by drinking a lot of water and eating hydrating foods.
Here are some Chinese Medicine Tips:
Summer is a time of expansion, growth, activity, creativity, connection. Being outside, travel, play are all summertime joys. This is also the time of year when the fruits and vegetable are plentiful and colorful. Take advantage of this abundant time of year to enjoy food and the people in your life. It is best to eat raw fruits and vegetables, or lightly cook your foods by steaming. Cooking with more water than oils will produce lighter meals.
Specifically for your skin:
The skin is associated with the Lung and Large Intestine. The only two internal organs that have contact with the outside world. They are susceptible to environmental factors, and it is very important to keep them healthy. Your skin is your largest organ, protecting your internal structure. Like the lungs, your skin breathes in and out. Both the skin and the large intestine absorb water and nutrients, emit chemicals and release toxins. These three organs are vitally connected and it is important to keep them all healthy.
True radiant skin, stems from the root of your internal organs. They keep your skin glowing.
Of course, acupuncture sessions will bring more blood and healing to your skin. As well stimulate collagen production, helping to keep your skin tight. Acupuncture treats your whole body to address the root cause of your health condition.
