Here's a quick overview on the skin. The skin is your protective wrapping and your largest elimination organ.

It is an organ system which regulates body temperature, protects from environmental elements, senses pleasant or painful stimuli, and keeps substances from entering the body.

Anything that goes wrong with the skin's function or appearance can have physical and mental consequences.

Acne, eczema and other skin conditions can be exacerbated by or due to digestive problems, poor or inadequate eating habits and even emotional stress and poor mindset or attitude.

The skin is made of layers and each performs specific functions.

The top layer is called the epidermis.

It contains keratin which are dead cells which protect the skin from harmful substances.

Next is the dermis. It contains pain and touch receptors as well as blood vessels which provide the skin its nutrients, such as oxygen. The dermis is followed by a layer of fat which insulates the body. Read ahead to learn about Home Remedies for: Natural Acne Treatment, Scars, Aging, Hair Loss and More.

ACNE - Acne is a common skin condition defined as an inflammatory disease involving the sebaceous glands of the skin. It is characterized by papules or pustules or comedones.

It can be caused by allergies, hormonal imbalances, stress, or improper diet.

The skin is the largest organ of elimination so when the liver and kidney are backed-up, the skin picks up the excess work in order to rid the body of its excess impurities.

This can trigger acne, worsen the acne and even inhibit the recovery from acne.

AGING - The skin tends to change throughout a person's life. Once as a child, the skin maintained a much thicker fat layer.

As we age, the fat layer, as well as the epidermis and dermis layers become significantly thinner.

Read this article from Aging Skin Net to learn a few Basic Facts about aging skin.

The elastic fibers in the dermis become fragmented, and the skin wrinkles.

The flow of blood also decreases with age so damaged skin heals more slowly.

Blood contains oxygen; a healing property. Less blood flow, less oxygen. Less oxygen, less rejuvenation.

Smokers advance the aging process because of this...instead of inhaling oxygen (nutrient), they are inhaling carbon dioxide (toxin).

Mature skin also makes less protective oils, so the skin dries out more easily.

This is the natural, and inevitable process of aging skin.

Never-the-less, these changes can take place in a graceful manner.

As with most things in life, a strong foundation is most essential and skin care is no different.

By considering these home remedies, you will address the aging process at the cellular level. You'll also be given ideas for topical anti-aging remedies.

ECZEMA - or DRY / ITCHY SKIN - Dry skin is common especially as we age.

Triggers can be exogenous in nature: seasonal allergies, bug bites, harsh soaps, and food allergens. These can also be endogenous in nature such as: diabetes, blood disorders or hormonal imbalances.

Foods are a well-known eczema trigger. These can be endogenous or exogenous in nature. Foods such as strawberries, nuts, diary products and shellfish can cause a severe immune (endogenous)response.

The term ECZEMA itself is a general term commonly used to define a chronic, inflammatory, skin condition with symptoms such as burning, scaly skin, itchiness etc. There are many different types of eczema such as allergic, contact, seborrheic and others.

Eczema is also known as Atopic Dermatitis. It can be characterized by a triad which includes asthma, allergies (hay fever), and itchy, inflammed, dry skin (eczema). It has a strong hereditary component.

HAIR LOSS - Hair loss or Alopecia is more common in men than it is in women.

Read about Hair Science from the American Hair Loss Association

Gradual thinning is a normal part of aging. Most individuals normally shed 50 to 100 hairs a day.

Hair loss can be caused by many factors including aging, skin conditions, hormonal changes or imbalances and systemic conditions.

MALE HAIR LOSS: It is the most common and it can depend on levels of male hormones (androgens). Men with hair loss often have elevated levels of DHT (Dihydrotestosterone) in their balding scalps. Scientists believe DHT contributes to the progressive shrinking of hair follicles and a decrease in the number of visible hairs.

FEMALE HAIR LOSS: It is the least common.

The hair typically thins in the front and on the sides. It does not typically advance to total hair loss.

Elevated DHT may also be a contributing factor in female hair loss. Most literature refer to DHT as an element for male hair loss.

TOXIC HAIR LOSS: This type of hair loss may be due to high fever, or excessive doses of certain drugs such as Vitamin A, retinoids, cancer agents,etc.

It can also be caused by an underactive thyroid gland or even from pregnancy. The hair loss is due to the hormonal changes caused by either condition.

Though most warts are easily spread from one part of the body to another, they are not necessarily very contagious from one person to another.

Genital warts, on the other hand, are very contagious.
