Symptoms Ultraviolet rays or inflammation cause melanin to grow in number and appear on the skin's surface as dark spots. Melanin in the skin is supposed to be disposed of during the skin's regeneration cycle, but if the process is unsuccessful or slow, it would remain in the skin.
Causes Dark spots are caused by the deterioration in liver function – which stores and supplies blood – as well as poor blood circulation.
Liver function declines as we age, resulting hormonal imbalance and leading to the formation of dark spots or liver spots.
Affected
organs
Liver, lungs
Helpful Tips
  1. The liver detoxifies our body daily between 1–3am. It's a process that can only begin while we are sleeping. So its best that we sleep before 11pm every night.
  2. Ensure you are properly protected against the sun each time you head out.
Symptoms The skin is the mirror of our organs. When there are problems with our organs, the skin would lose its smoothness, itch, swell, grow acne and many more. When pores are clogged by sebum, the skin would swell because of bacteria infection, forming acne. The growth of Papule, know colloquially as "adult acne", is closely linked to the living environment, stress, and hormonal balance.
Causes Acne grows when toxins collected inside our body are stimulated by heat and other external factors. To truly restore health and beauty to the skin, acne must be treated from the inside.
Affected
organs
Liver, lungs
Helpful Tips
  1. Avoid oily, sweet, spicy or any kind of food that would trap heat inside your body.
  2. Constipation may aggravate acne. Eat more vegetables.
  3. Exercise to promote perspiration.
  4. Relax and stay happy.
Symptoms The collagen and hyaluronan in the core of our dermal tissue keep the skin elastic, moisturised and soft. These components decrease with age, and, in time, would form wrinkles, fine lines, and smile lines.
Causes The decline of the lungs leads to poor fluid metabolism, which results in the loss of skin elasticity. The deterioration of the spleen prevents nutrients and blood from being delivered to every cell. The decline of the kidneys causes the skin to lose its suppleness and increase its wrinkles.
Affected
organs
Lungs, spleen, kidneys
Helpful Tips
  1. Cut down on spicy, fried or any kind of similar food. Eat more vegetables and fruits.
  2. Drink at least 2 litres of water a day.
  3. Sleep well.
  4. Relax and stay happy.
Symptoms As we age, our skin becomes less supple, allowing the symptoms of ageing to surface. When the skin lacks collagen, elastin and hyaluronan, it will lose its elasticity and moisture. If the situation worsens, permanent wrinkles will form.
Causes The spleen is an important organ whose main functions are to digest and absorb nutrients. If its functions decline, the body would be unable to produce enough nutrients for the skin, making the skin lose its suppleness. When the kidneys deteriorate, hormonal imbalance would occur, causing the female hormones that produce collagen to decrease. Which is why conditioning the health of organs inside is as important as nourishing the skin outside.

Spleen, kidneys
Helpful Tips
  1. Stimulate your facial muscles with this simple exercise: Say "yee" with your mouth wide open and your teeth showing. Then say "woo" slowly, with your lips pursed. Repeat 5-8 times.
  2. Cut down on spicy, fried or any kind of similar food. Eat more vegetables and fruits.
  3. Drink at least 2 litres of water a day.
  4. Sleep well.
  5. Relax and stay happy.
Symptoms Dark circles are actually blood vessels that can be seen through the skin under the eyes – which are thinner – and are especially visible when the body is tired or deprived of sleep.
Causes Dark circles are not a type of skin problem, but rather a indication from your body that the liver is declining, or blood circulation is deteriorating. It is a common trait found in people who work late constantly or suffer from insomnia.
Affected
organs
Liver
Helpful Tips
  1. Night is the time blood are "produced". So it is vital to rest and get ample sleep.
  2. Avoid overworking your eyes. Remember to let them rest constantly.
Symptoms Our scalp is also prone to skin problems, which result in oily hair, hair loss, dry hair, and more.
Causes The health of our hair is closely connected to our kidney. Blood is responsible for transporting nutrients to our head and skin. When there is a lock of blood, our hair will grow thinner and drier. Poor blood circulation leads to poor nutrient distribution, causing hair to fall out.
Affected
organs
Kidney, Liver, Spleen, Thyroid gland
Helpful Tips
  1. Exercise more to improve blood circulation.
  2. Ensure sufficient intake of nutrients.
  3. Relieve your stress.
  4. Do not use overly strong hair products and skincare products.
Symptoms Oversized belly, increasing waist size, overeating, constipation, cellulite, etc.
Causes Bad living and eating habits cause obesity. Body not functioning properly, slow metabolic rate, as well as poor blood circulation and detoxification could all lead to excess, stubborn fats accumulating inside your body.
Affected

Kidney, Liver, Spleen, Thyroid gland

How well do you know your organs?
Heart   The core of the circulatory system. Pumps blood to all parts of the body. Also regulates blood pressure and the body's fluid balance.
Liver   The biggest and busiest organ in the body. Primarily responsible for metabolism, detoxification as well as lipid metabolism and digestion. Also stores and provides blood.
Spleen   The body's largest secondary lymphoid organ. Works with the circulatory system and immune system. Primarily helps in digestion, absorption, and keeping the stomach and intestines in optimum condition.
Lungs   Governs respiration and fluid metabolism. Also nourishes skin and hair.
Kidneys   Kidneys are like a body's "water filters"; they eliminate body waste along with urine from the body. Kidneys are also the source of vitality and immunity. They mainly regulate growth and reproduction. The decline of kidneys will cause various ageing symptoms to appear.
Thyroid gland   An endocrine organ that conditions the self-recovery speed of cells.
Lymphatic system   A vital part of the immune system. When lymph flows through lymph nodes, foreign matter in the fluid will be cleared.
