The skin is the largest organ of the body, if we talk about its area, in an adult it weighs about 3 kilograms and makes up 6-8% of the total body weight.
A piece of skin the size of a ten-kopeck coin contains about 3 million cells, hundreds of sweat glands, 50 nerve endings, about 90 cm of blood vessels and the same amount of lymph. Accordingly, the number and variety of skin functions is enormous.
Skin thickness varies greatly: the thinnest - 0.1 mm - hair channel on the eyelid; the thickest - 3-4 mm on the back of the hand and on the foot.
It prevents the penetration of foreign substances and prevents excessive loss of fluid, and most chemical cosmetics are considered by the skin as "foreign formations" from which it must be protected.
The skin regulates temperature and contains more blood vessels than it needs to nourish it. Sweat glands moisturize the skin and cool the overheated body through evaporation.
Due to the presence of sweat glands, the skin is an excretory organ. It is an important part of our immune system, as it is supplied with a dense network of lymphatic vessels and because the chemical components of its tissues are actively functioning. The surface of the skin has an acidic protective coating that helps to fight off bacterial attacks and the action of chemical agents. Therefore, it is so important not to destroy this layer with constant irritation or even inappropriate care products. That is why long-term allergies are often observed after using modern chemicals for hand washing, or even in those cases when you often have to wash your skin.
The skin is involved in metabolism, fat storage and removal, and in the normalization of water and salt levels. If the liver is malfunctioning, signs of the disease appear on the skin: allergies, dermatitis, diathesis, urticaria, eczema, etc.
The skin is the site of the formation of vitamin E under the influence of sunlight, and at the same time it protects the body from the harmful effects of the sun's rays, if it is not overloaded with constant radiation and sunscreens. Sunscreens do not support this function, but replace it. And when they stop using such cosmetics, the skin becomes too sensitive to sunlight.
The skin helps regulate blood pressure: The opening and closing of blood vessels in the skin regulates the supply of blood. If you wear red clothes, then this contributes to the expansion of blood vessels, and if you wear blue, then narrowing.
The skin functions as a sense organ. Through touch, massage and skin care, we can have a positive effect on any internal organ and even heal it. The sensitivity of the skin, coupled with the ability to receive a huge number of signals, transmit them and respond to irritation is very high. Depending on the care, stress, the skin changes, it can become either sensitive and tender, or rough and insensitive.
The skin continually sheds cells from its surface. For 70 years of human life, it replaces up to 850 layers of the skin. The lowest layer of the skin is made up of living cells that divide. They detach and slowly move through the two middle layers, turning into dandruff at the top, which falls off, so the upper skin is constantly renewed, completing the cycle in 28 days, i.e. for the lunar month!
With the waning moon, the skin is ready to part with dead cells and cornification, and if you help it, it will remain tender for a long time. During this period, it is best to carry out cosmetic procedures (peeling) - the removal of dead skin cells by artificial means. After that, it becomes soft and velvety for a long time. But the skin is cleared even better during the bath procedures. Don't we feel rejuvenated after a Russian bath with a broom? All skin is freed of old dead cells, and the body begins to breathe freely over the entire surface of the body.
If the skin tends to form blackheads, then a bath may not be enough to clean it. In this case, a gruel of almonds, oats and corn is made and applied to the face when warm, it removes blackheads and makes the skin soft, elastic. Or you can take oat flour, corn flour and the protein of one chicken egg for a mask. Apply on face for 20 minutes, then rinse with water and sea salt. The remaining blackheads are removed with pressure, then the skin is treated with lemon juice.
With normal skin, the dandruff cells lie relatively smoothly on the surface, but with dry skin, a stratum corneum forms, which leads to deeper penetration of microorganisms, so pimples can form. In this case, frequent exfoliation leads to rapid aging of the skin. There are no blood vessels in the upper layers of the skin; they are nourished by the middle layers, which also contain lymph nodes. The lymphatic vessels play an important role in the elimination of harmful substances from the body. The ideal time for their massage is the time of the waning moon.
In the upper layers of the skin, there are hair canals and associated sebaceous glands. The sebaceous glands secrete a secret necessary to keep the skin soft. Acne indicates a violation of sebum production, the sebaceous glands become clogged and inflamed. Because of acne, children and adolescents most often suffer, but you should not fight only with the acne itself, you need to cleanse the blood using nettle tea. Correctly selected acne removers accelerate this process, and mild hygiene products can improve the process of sebum production, thus eliminating the cause of acne formation.
By the way, the waning moon is also the most convenient time for removing tartar. At the same time, it is best to treat periodontal disease. Sea salt, bread leaven and herbal teas (with sage, with chamomile for inflammation, with a shepherd's bag for bleeding gums) are excellent natural remedies for cleaning teeth. They remove plaque and strengthen the gums. If the gums bleed, then the lingonberry leaves help well, you need to chew them.
The waning moon is well suited for lymphatic drainage, especially if it is in the water signs (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces), since the fluid in the body most easily comes into motion during this period. An important element of cleansing the lymphatic system is water procedures, which should preferably be supplemented with Swedish massage (hard brush). Massage lymphatic drainage can work wonders. Massage helps to remove harmful substances, stabilizes the heart and blood circulation, it stimulates the activity of all internal organs.
Before the new moon, a special force begins to act on people, animals and plants: many diseases can be avoided if at this time you fast and eat a lot of fruits. During this period, harmful substances can be removed from the body more efficiently. In addition, you should strive to:
Tea made from herbs cleanses lymph: lemon balm, thyme, meadowsweet, willow-herb, knotweed, calendula, St. John's wort, hawthorn, birch leaves, licorice root.
Apple cider vinegar liquefies, dissolves hardening, improves lymph flow. They drink it, adding 1-2 tsp. a glass of warm water 2-3 times a day.
To cleanse the lymph, it is recommended:
• Drink coffee from toasted and ground dandelion roots with the addition of honey - 1 tbsp. l. three times per day; or dry dandelion roots into powder and brew 1 tbsp. powder in 1/2 liter of boiling water. Insist in a thermos overnight, drink a glass 2-3 times a day. The course is 7 days.

• Daily consumption of fresh red beet juice and grape wine 1: 1 to 1/2 cup gives a wonderful effect in the treatment of the most serious diseases, including lymphosarcoma. Use beet juice 3-4 hours after preparation.
• Marsh cinquefoil is a very effective cleaning agent. Fill a 1/3 liter jar with crushed stems and rhizomes, pour boiling water to the top and close it with a tight lid, insist for two weeks. Drink 1 tsp. 3-4 times daily before meals. After the infusion is over, take a break for 20-30 days and repeat the course.
• Drink 1-2 glasses of milk whey every day on an empty stomach. Add 2 teaspoons of table salt to 1 glass. The procedure is designed for two days. Cleanse the intestines first in the evening. 1st day - drink only kefir (1-3 l) and eat nothing; 2nd day drink only fresh vegetable and fruit juices. Repeat the procedure after 3-4 weeks.

Proper maintenance of the garden is the key to excellent growth and development, which is reflected in the quantity and quality of the crop. One of the most important activities is tree cleaning. What is the essence of the procedure and why it is needed, we will tell you in this article.
By the way, our professional gardeners can carry out all the vital procedures for the garden. We will take care of your plantings efficiently and inexpensively! :)
Excess load on the trunk
To begin with, let's consider what cleaning a tree from bark is, what is the name of this procedure and the meaning of its implementation.
Over time, the old "skin" of the plant dies off and cracks. On the one hand, it does not interfere: it stuck to the plant and let it be natural. On the other hand, it is in these cracks that danger can settle. Deep pores are an ideal place for many pests to live and overwinter. In addition, a fungus develops well in these depressions. In wet warm weather, there is simply no better place for the growth of fungus and rot.
Removing bark from a tree is a sanitary and hygienic procedure carried out by gardeners to prevent diseases in the garden, as well as to save plants from pests. Treated plantings show good growth and development, in contrast to gardens that do not undergo this procedure. The fact is that in addition to the basic functions, the procedure directly affects the life of the plant. Why? It's simple: cleaning the tree trunk from bark will relieve it of the excess load, which partially obstructs access to air. As a result, it is easier for the plant to breathe, therefore, the vegetation processes are much faster.
If you do not hold the event on time, sooner or later you will have to carry out another procedure - cleaning the trees from lichen and moss. They grow well on old bark with deep pores.
Let us remind you that our experienced gardeners with many years of experience will help you take care of your garden. We will carry out everything correctly, quickly and efficiently! :)
Removing the old bark Now we will analyze how the bark of fruit trees is cleaned, namely, we will consider the technology. For the procedure, you will need:
As a result, the tree should be covered with a uniform, smooth bark. Do not forget that this procedure is carried out as a preliminary event before whitewashing the trunk or coating it with a mixture of clay and manure. Don't forget to "paint the tree" at the end.
At the end of removing old bark from the tree, remove the spread cloth with debris. All "scraps" are desirable to burn. They may well contain insects that have prepared a winter night for themselves in the pores, as well as microorganisms - causative agents of various diseases. You should not keep such a "wealth" of dangers on your site.
In parallel with this event, a procedure such as cleaning fruit trees from dry branches is often carried out. In time, it is advisable to remove old branches during the stop of sap flow. So if you are going to whitewash the plants in late autumn, it's time to carry out two procedures at the same time.
Tree clearing or pruning is carried out twice a year. In autumn - at the end of the growing process and in spring - before the beginning. By the way, if you are cutting off large branches, do not forget to coat the wounds with garden varnish or oil paint based on drying oil.
It is one of the most commonly used compounds for cleaning sewer pipes, cesspools and septic tanks. This widespread use is due to the mass of the effective properties of sodium hydroxide.
Among them, it is worth highlighting the following characteristics:

Stumps left after cutting down old or disturbing plants are best uprooted using a technique. If this is not possible, over time, wood residues will serve as a good fertilizer for future plantings.
To destroy the root and kill the growth, you can use ammonium nitrate, potassium or urea. Due to their chemical properties, they destroy not only the visible part, but also the roots. The root system with a stump 1 meter in diameter dies throughout the year.
The substance is placed in drilled holes and covered with improvised stoppers or a layer of dense film so that the preparation is not washed out by sediments. Subsequently, the dead stump is burned out.
You can do without fire and destroy the wood debris with a shovel. When exposed to chemicals, the wood becomes crumbly.
To use chemicals to combat trees, you must take precautions, strictly following the instructions. It is necessary to dilute the preparations in non-metallic containers with clean water without impurities. The optimum water temperature is + 20– + 25 ° С.
The choice of the method of using herbicidal preparations depends on many factors: the time of the year, the size of a particular specimen or the planting area, the presence of crops nearby.
