Skin protects you from injury, infections, and dehydration, maintains your temperature and eliminates waste from your body. It is the most vulnerable organ in your body because of its constant exposure to the environmental hazards. It also is one of the first places you will notice the affects of poor health care such as improper diet, nutritional deficiencies, improper waste elimination, and exposure to harmful elements both natural and manmade. Without skin - well you’d literally fall apart! Maybe that’s part of the reason why it is so traumatic when even the slightest inefficiency occurs or imperfection surfaces.
In this chapter we will discuss the skin as it relates to picking at pimples, but remember that the complex system described is also affected when you pick at your cuticles or anywhere else for that matter. The more you understand your skin the more you can empathize with the trauma your over-manipulated skin has experienced. Learn to cooperate with nature’s attempts to heal itself.
