As the seasons change, I love to shift my routine to support my body and skin. I've dealt with skin conditions for so many years, from acne and breakouts to excessively dry skin... I’m always looking for ways to keep my body in total balance.
Transitioning into Autumn means that the air is drier and cooler, which in turn can make our bodies experience the same manifestations. After spending many years studying Eastern Medicine, I have found that Chinese Medicine does the best job at explaining and sharing how the body is completely interconnected and how we can use these inner-workings to support our vitality.
In the Fall, the lungs and the large intestine are the predominant organs of the season, meaning these are the first two that may be affected. In turn, I’m always trying to do whatever I can to support and nourish these organs over those next few months. These organs also affect the health and vitality of our skin: when we’re not breathing deeply and getting enough oxygen into our system, it shows up on our skin. Additionally, if our large intestine isn’t working efficiently, then our systems of elimination become, well, backed up. And since our skin is the largest organ, it will try to make up for where toxins aren’t being released through our elimination system and we may experience things like clogged pores and breakouts.
So as you can see, everything is really working together to create the perfect system of harmony for our radiance, but during seasonal transitions we always want to help support the organ systems that are predominant so that we don’t experience the symptoms that may arise. Here are some of my favorite Sun Potion products for Fall that align with supporting my entire system during the season to help keep my body happy and my skin glowing.
