Liver flushing is definitely a direct way to regulate fat metabolism, but I suggest that you adjust your diet to one that reduces Kapha in your body. Excessive Kapha causes the skin to become oily. The fatty substances that come out of your skin contain certain types of toxins that your body tries to eliminate via the skin. Suppressing this form of elimination through topical application can be harmful to your health. On directions how to balance Kapha, please see the body type section in my book Timeless Secrets of Health & Rejuvenation, http://www.ener-chi.com.
