As an organ in its own right, our skin has an intimate connection with our internal organs.
Our skin is more than a mere representation of our external beauty: it reflects our inner
beauty, and our health.

By observing our facial skin around our mouths, we can see subtle changes in structure
where it turns into mucosa, or "inner skin". Mucosa is lacking in keratin, which protects
our external skin from chemical and physical trauma. Furthermore, our mucosa can
absorb a great deal, and is intimately connected to our intestine. Consequently, the health
of our intestine can be manifest externally.

During the early years of our lives, neural connections between our brains and skin are
established: When a baby is touched and cuddled, important memories are formed: Due
to this, skin pathologies such sas Eczema, are often triggered by emotional trauma.

Many of our lines and wrinkles are connected to our facial mimic, which is in turn
connected to our emotions. Other wrinkles are, of course, linked to the natural ageing
process, and are more defined due to a combination of factors, including poor diet, sun
exposure, pollution, and insufficient sleep. To slow this process down, follow an organic
lifestyle, with a diet rich in anti-oxidants and vitamins, and get plenty of rest and
excercise. You should also drink plenty of water, with a few drops of lemon juice, and
moisturise regularly.

Minerals which support our collagen metabolism include Silica and Sulfur, and these can
help prevent wrinkles. Foods to consider, which are high in these minerals, are garlic,
cabbage, watercress, and cauliflower. Peppers, tomatoes, broccoli, and beetroot are also
ver beneficial as they are rich in antioxidants and vitamins. Cold pressed oils and small
amounts of nuts are also very good for you as they are rich in essential fatty acids and
Vitamin E.

Ideally, you should also include an organic skincare regime in your daily life:
Moisturising your skin with oils rich in Vitmain E, essential fatty acids, enzymes and
chlorophyll will soften your skin, and minimise evaporation. These oils also include
natural protection against UV rays.

To minimise wrinkles, you should of course not smoke, and only drink small amounts of
alcohol, sunbathe moderately, and greet life with enthusiasm! This way, your wrinkles
and lines will be down to too much laughter!
