Being the largest organ of the body, our skin is alive and quite sensitive to anything that it touches or anything that is applied on it. It has a rhythm : an inhalation and an exhalation, absorbing oxygen, nutrients, sensing light and regulating heat and cold. It releases carbon dioxide, sheds dead skin cells and completely regenerates itself every 3-4 weeks.
Made up of literally millions of tiny dermal passages, regulating the inward movement of air, fluids, heat and light, a healthy skin can breathe through these passages unobstructed, and each breath activates the absorption of nutritive substances and stimulates vital functions of a restorative nature.
The upper layers of the skin rely on, and are, largely supplied by atmospheric oxygen. This molecular oxygen is vital to support the normal structure and activity of cells. This protective organ of our body interacts with other organ systems, such as digestion, and is the on-side manufacturer of roughly fifty per cent of our immune cells. It is unbelievably flexible, and is resilient fabric providing shape to the skeletal and muscular body. It is in a constant state of homeostasis, displaying exceptional healing abilities.
One of the most important functions of skin at night is to repair and renew. During the night metabolism and respiration slow down, and we are in our deepest rest. Along with the lungs and kidneys, the skin is one of three major pathways the body uses to release metabolic impurities from the digestive process, and it does this through tiny dermal pores.
The fundamentals necessary to creating and maintaining healthy skin include a balance of nourishing foods and pure water, time spent in quiet contemplation, and exercise that encourages a healthy sweat and deep breathing.
Most of the pharma or petro-based face creams and similar lotions spread a coating, or cover the pores of skin, thus interfering with its own natural functions. On the other hand, the fine molecules of natural organic products are able to get absorbed into the skin – we need to keep in mind that two per cent of what we apply on our skin finds its way to our blood stream.
Keeping these factors in mind, the top of the range Herbally Radiant natural anti-aging products (REJUVENATING and RADIANT) have been formulated with very rich nutrients to improve firmness, elasticity and resilience of the skin, making the skin texture soft and smooth.
