    WINTER SKIN


    Keeping the skin healthy in winter is a skill which everybody would love to learn. Skin is the largest organ and its care is not just from outside but more from inside out.

    The skin becomes dry due to external causes but it is also being affected due to the internal environment.

    Large intestine is another organ which has a see-saw balance between the lungs. Hence in cold attacks the constipation is inevitable. This has to be tackled by Sujok Acupuncture, seed or magnets or colour therapy. Drinking enough water consciously is very important as thirst condition is not there in winter months.

    **Oil could be added to bath water and applied to skin directly.**The toxins are removed from the skin by keeping our lungs and large intestine in good condition which relieves us of itchy and red skin.

    Cleaning skin with mild soap is very important two to three times a day including before sleeping. Clearing skin, scrubbing with mild scrubbing agents is important to remove dead skin and opening pores. This also improves the circulation of blood and Qi to that area, the meridian in that area gets activated and body is sparkling and shiny. Olive oil, coconut oil, mustard oil etc massage also improves the blood flow.
    As an acupuncturist we can help you and identify the areas to be massaged for the particular skin issue.
