The Liver

A recent commenter on the blog reminded me of the importance of keeping the liver in a healthy state, for healthy skin and general health. The liver removes toxins from the body, and if we continually abuse it with fatty foods, alcohol and painkillers, our skin will suffer. 
It is said: "We live as long as our liver allows".
Fried foods are particularly bad for the liver as they contain fats damaged by high temperatures. Eating fruit and vegetables, and drinking plenty of water, helps to prevent the liver from becoming overloaded with toxins.
There are also many herbal supplements that tone the liver.
