The skin is the body’s largest organ. It receives 1/3 of all the blood pumped from the heart. It eliminates up to two pounds of waste acids a day and is responsible for 1/4 of the body`s detoxification. The skin is also the last organ to receive nutrients but the first to show signs of any deficiency.
