The skin has multiple functions including helping to eliminate waste (toxins) from the body. Where do you think sweat comes from? It comes from the same source as any other fluid in your body. Consequently, it can pick up the same products in the system as other flluids. While to a lesser extent than the kidneys, sweat can “help” eliminate toxins from the body. One significant example are diabetics. When their blood sugar is out of control, their kidneys start excreting ketones through the urine, which are poisonous to the body. So do the sweat glands. Anyone who has been around a diabetic recognizes the tell-tale smell of a diabetic who has a high blood sugar. Ketones have a slightly fermented fruity smell and you can smell it because the body is sweating it out of the system.
