Does Great Skin Start in the Blood? The Role of Circulation in Skin Health

by Kristina Holey

When most people think of the circulatory system, high blood pressure, strokes, and heart attacks are the first things that come to mind. And those are indeed common issues!

My practice is focused on skin health, and as we’ll see, there is a direct correlation between healthy circulation and healthy skin.
