Itchy Scratchy…


Itchy Scratchy……….Quote; “The skin is the largest organ of the body, with a total area of about 20 square feet. The skin protects us from microbes and the elements, helps regulate body temperature, and permits the sensations of touch, heat and cold” WebMD

So is it any wonder that my skin is a constant reminder that my body is not in balance…I get, in no particular order, soreness & itching, heat rashes, spots & pimples, cracking & flaking, blister type water bubbles, sweating & shivering, outstanding bruising & general sensitivity…

I get that this relates to my health & the imbalances that this brings…But knowing this does not stop it being a tricky one to balance…Creams can help in some situations…Staying out of the direct sun is also a help…Ditto for extreme cold and severe wind…Over use of bathing/washing can also have a very drying effect on skin that already leans toward dryness…& there is only so much that lotions & potions can do!!…

I’ve never smoked…I haven’t drunk alcohol for some time…I’ve never been one for using make up…I gave up drinking tea (except herbal) & coffee in my teens…I’m not a fan of fizzy refined sugar & sweetener packed drinks…So you would think that my skin would be relatively happy…I have to say that I am frequently complimented on the clarity & condition of my facial skin…So complexion good…But general skin??bit itchy scratchy at times!!…

Hey ho it could be way worse…I’ll keep drinking the water…I’ll keep eating the healing food…I’ll keep avoiding the “bad stuff”…& i’ll keep remembering that others have it way worse than I do…NL x
