In TCM views, the spleen provides the source of blood and qi (vital energy), and the lung is responsible for disseminating the blood and qi to the skin. These two organs ensure the skin is constantly nourished; however, other organs also attribute to the smoothness of the circulation.
Physicians divide dull and lusterless skin into four phases:
1. Blood and body fluid depletion
2. Deficiency of lung and spleen
3. Yang deficiency of spleen and kidney
4. Phlegm and blood stasis obstruction
The remedies are provided according to these phases, the methods may include herbal prescriptions, dietary and lifestyle modifications, massage, acupuncture, and topical paste. You better consult a physician for a tailored plan.
