What Is the Liver's Main Function?
The liver's main function is to detoxify the blood when it comes from the colon, lymphatic system and the lungs. After the detoxification has been complete it provides oxygen and nutrients to the body. In the environment we live in today, our liver has a hard time keeping up with all the toxins we inhale and ingest. These toxins come from air pollution, cigarette smoke, pesticides, alcohol, and process foods. If we do not detoxify the liver yearly, the liver becomes overloaded with toxin's and does not continue to function properly.
How Toxic Buildup Effects The Skin
When the liver is build up with toxins it can no longer function properly. All the toxins in the body start to expel through the skin. Most people who suffer with acne have a hormonal imbalance. When the liver is no longer functioning properly all the hormones build up in the liver and this causes an over production of sebum (skin oil), which causes clogged pores and acne.
How to Detoxify The Liver
Before detoxifying the liver you could try to add more fiber to your diet. More fiber helps to trap the excess hormones from being pumped into the blood stream which causes less oil to be produced. That equals less acne blemishes and that alone could help you get rid of acne.
There are several ways to perform a liver detox. If you are very dedicated and determined you could cleanse the liver through diet. Liver cleansing foods include, turmeric, lemons, honey, water, ginger root and organic fruits/veggies.
Another way is to ingest a herbal pill like Elxr Co Detox + Nourish that cleanses the liver. This pill would be full of herbs that naturally detoxify the liver. Along with the herbal pill you would have to avoid process foods, sugar, coffee and alcohol. During any kind of liver cleanse you will want to make sure that you avoid those foods and drinks anyway so that the cleanse will be the most effective and get rid of your acne.
