Skin Care May be Affected by Your Liver Function

Problems with the liver can result in several symptoms that, unless they become very serious, are not often recognized as being related to that organ. These include dry, itchy skin, rashes, and acne. In addition to using a shielding lotion to keep your skin hydrated and protect it from toxins, you may have to investigate your liver function to determine if lifestyle changes are necessary for your skin care routine.

The liver is the second largest organ in the body, the skin being the largest, and contributes to many vital functions. To name just a few – it secretes the bile necessary for proper digestion of nutrients, breaks down fats, metabolizes and neutralizes toxic wastes and other poisonous substances, stores glucose and monitors and controls blood sugar through a complex interaction between the pancreas and glucose levels, and helps coagulate the blood.

The symptoms of liver dysfunction affect almost every area of the body, including:

• improper metabolism of fats causing blocked arteries, excessive weight gain (even when dieting), sluggish metabolism, cellulite and other fatty deposits
• just about every digestive problem you can think of
• immune dysfunctions that cover everything from allergies to chronic fatigue syndrome and include multiple food and chemical sensitivities that can cause dry skin, rashes and inflammation
• unstable blood sugar levels and sugar cravings
• nervous system disorders that manifest as depression, anxiety, mood changes, feeling foggy, or having poor concentration
• hormonal problems

Let’s have a look at how each of these affects the skin. Slow metabolism in general causes dry skin, but, as we gain weight from improper metabolism of fats our circulation slows down and the skin dries even further. Poor digestion and immune system dysfunction results in a build up of toxins which then get excreted through the skin causing dryness and inflammation. Both high and low blood sugar levels dry the skin, and high blood sugar can also lead to the cracked, split skin sometimes seen in diabetics. Eczema flare-ups are often associated with dysfunction of the nervous system, and some hormonal imbalances – hypothyroidism is a very common example – are so often associated with dry, itchy, inflamed skin that the condition of the skin is one of the factors leading to initial diagnosis.

All of the above indicate that the health of your liver needs to be considered when working out your personal skin care routine. Healthy skin is not just a question of what skin care products are needed.

If you have dry itchy skin or skin rashes, the first thing to do is ensure that you are caring for your skin properly. Along with using a good shielding lotion, a natural skin care routine will help handle dry skin and any other skin problems. But if you also have any of the other symptoms listed above, check your liver function.
