Can we detox our skin?

Can we detox our skin?



We tend to think of detoxing by doing a week of green juices or cutting out processed food, however detoxing our skin can be just as important as looking at what we eat.  A study published in the American Journal of Public Health looked into the skin’s absorption rates of chemicals found in drinking water. It showed that the skin absorbed an average of 64% of total contaminant dosage.(1)  Other studies found the face to be several times more permeable than broad body surfaces and an absorption rate of 100% for underarms and genitalia.
