Do you have dry skin?
Whilst the eyes are a window to your soul, your skin can be a window into your internal health and your gut health in particular. Skin is our largest organ and our largest detoxification organ. So, if you have issues with your skin, you will need to dig deeper.
Could it be your thyroid? Could be.
When our thyroid hormones aren’t optimal it impacts our gut, digestion, detoxification pathways and therefore our skin. In terms of DRY skin, the slowing of the metabolic function can cause the skin to be dry. Overactive thyroid conditions are generally associated with oily skin.
Don’t use toxic chemical laden skin care products. We need to avoid hormone disrupting chemicals, many of which are found in our skin and body care products. That’s why I love using my essential oils and doTERRA’s skin care products.
🩸Get your thyroid levels tested.
💊Take good supplements with good levels of Omegas. I love Lifelong Vitality by doTERRA.
🚰 Hydration from within is important -so drink lots of water. Adding a drop of a cleansing oil like the detoxification blend (Zendocrine) or lemon can help too.
🦠 Keep the gut healthy by removing inflammatory foods for your body, eating fermented foods etc.
💦 My favourite essential oils to use on my dry skin are: Frankincense, Myrrh, the anti-aging blend (Salubelle) on a base of jojoba as my carrier oil.
🌀 I love the doTERRA body butter – especially in winter when my skin is drier. I’ll even use it on my face from time to time.
💚 If I can’t be bothered to DIY my skin care, my favourite skin care ranges from doTERRA are the Verage skin care collection (for $100 you get a cleanser, toner, moisturiser and serum) and I also like the Hydrating Cream.
