In our Austin, Texas Clinic, we have noticed that most people don’t realize that their liver function has a huge impact on their skin’s health and appearance. In fact, any problem with your liver tends to make itself known in the condition of your skin.
The liver is your bodies metabolic factory. It produces the energy needed to keep thousands of different functions going on in the cells of our body. The heart needs the energy to keep blood pumping to the skin and that blood delivers oxygen to the skin cells and that helps maintain the production of collagen which helps you maintain your youthful appearance. Skin cells require energy so they can regenerate and repair themselves and eliminate toxins. When the liver isn’t doing its job breaking down the toxins in your body efficiently, then they have to be eliminated from the body in some other way. In some cases, they end up leaving the body through the skin.
Simply put, toxins in the skin build-up and can cause inflammation resulting in skin issues like eczema, psoriasis, and unhealthy looking skin.
