Live Clean + Get Clear Holistically

But our colon deserves some real attention as it can either be the source of great health or the gateway to disease + chronic issues like acne. We talked about the overall function of the digestive system in Know Your Body. So we know how important it is for our colon to be in optimal fighting shape so it can help give our acne the old one, two knockout punch. The colon or large intestine is the last stop before waste is excreted. This is why regularity is so important. We want the junk our body has accumulated to be evacuated by way of our booty instead of through our skin.
