Lately, the climate change a lot. Extreme climate conditions can aggravate some existing skin problems or even cause new ones. In warmer climates, increased heat and humidity can cause your skin to sweat, leaving you more prone to breakouts, especially if your skin is oily.
Good skin complexion, reputed as one of the signs for being beautiful, is closely related to the comfortable stomach and intestines, which are also the basic conditions for physical and mental health.
What the ancient and modern, all people even men have yearned for day and night is a fine and smooth skin with elasticity, for which they have made unremitting efforts and various high- grade cosmetics have also been tried. Nevertheless, the beauty of the skin obtained in this way is actually only superficial beauty. Acne may emerge whenever physiological indisposition is felt.
Our skin, formed of epidermis, derma and subcutaneous tissue, plays the role of protecting the body’s various internal organs and transmitting pains, cold and heat, and touch to the central nervous system of the brain, and has the function of regulating the body temperature.
Skin is renewed about once a month. The old skin tissue turns into grime and peels off. The outermost layer of the epidermis called cuticle is actually the reserve of the skin grime, which is ordinarily deemed as the skin by us.
The cuticle contains water and oil. Skin, when short of water and oil, may have pimples appear on it and become coarse, for which water and oil should be supplemented properly by way of applying, for instance, cosmetics, lotions, etc. The effect of outside maintenance is, however, only limited to the cuticle, no matter how expensive the cosmetics may be. To have the skin acquire true beauty, efforts should be made from inside the body.
Both acne and coarseness of skin are apt to appear during constipation as a result that the feces long stored up in the intestines lead to the multiplication of harmful bacteria and thus create a large amount of toxic materials detrimental to the skin, which are then carried by blood into the body.
Constipation may also brought about by mental strain, imbalance of nutrition caused by selective eating disorder, insufficient sleep, irregular life, etc.
Irregular life, which damages the skin, may lead to constipation, and constipation may, in return, aggravate damage to the skin, forming a vicious cycle. Nobody can bear this however beautiful the skin may be.
To relieve the worry about acne and coarse skin, not only should the skin be treated with care daily but attention should also be paid to the cleaning of the intestines internally.
WHY THE INFANT’S SKIN IS SO DELICATE AND CLEAR
Almost all peoples especially women dream of having a smooth skin like an infant’s.
Why is the skin of the infant so beautiful?
The skin of infant contains much water, compared to the skin of the adult. That’s why the infant’s skin is so delicate and full of elasticity. Another factor related to the elasticity of skin is the collagen fibril, elastic fibril and lattice fibril in the derma. These fibrils in the infant are soft with elasticity. After people enter the age of 20, the skin will arrive at a “turning point”, where the collagen fibril reaches its climax and starts ageing, gradually losing its elasticity.
The ageing of skin is a natural physiological phenomenon. Though the ageing is unavoidable, its speed can be lowered. Intestines undertake the important function of maintaining the beauty of the skin. In this respect, there exist great differences between the intestines of the infant and those of the adult.
In people’s intestines live a great number of bacteria, among which bifidobacteria are beneficial to our body while perfringens and colibacilli are harmful. In the infant’s intestines bifidobacteria occupy an absolutely dominant position, which is the secret of smooth skin free from acne and coarseness.
With the growth of age, the amount of bifidobacteria is on the decrease, while, on the contrary, the amount of harmful bacteria is on the increase, thus making the skin lose its elasticity and color, and turn sallow as a result of that. This may be deemed as the internal result of the ageing of both skin and intestines.
