In the modern world, complaints such as acne, premature wrinkles, aging spots, and skin markings are common, so common, in fact, that they are often thought to be part of the normal process of adolescence or of aging.
Of the many theories about why these conditions appear, none really explains what the underlying causes are or offers a simple. natural method to prevent them from occurring.
However, acne, wrinkles. and skin markings are primarily the result of our diet and lifestyle. Many of these markings show that something is out of balance in our internal condition.
Nothing occurs in isolation in the body, and when something appears on the sur- face, it is the result of something else that is taking place on the inside, Deep wrinkles offer a good example of this process. repeated consumption of cholesterol and saturated fat causes collagen, which is the protein found in the skin, to become hard and inflexible.
This makes the skin less resilient, and can cause lines or wrinkles to become deeply etched in the face. Unfortunately, however, instead of suggesting dietary change as a method to prevent or even reverse wrinkling, modern approaches, including cosmetic surgery, isolate the wrinkles and try to hide or cover them up, In one method, liquid silicone or collagen taken from the skin of cows is injected to puff up the skin around the wrinkle, thereby causing it to become less pronounced.
These methods are frequently used to cover up deep vertical lines between the eyebrows which are sometimes referred to as glabella, or as “scowl lines.” As we will see later, these lines appear as the result of trouble in the liver.
Injecting bovine collagen or liquid silicone merely hides the wrinkles without dealing with the underlying problem in the liver or seeking to correct the case of the condition. Besides, these artificial substances disturb the flow of energy through the facial meridians and block the natural discharge function of the skin.
