Before you can look after your skin, you must first understand it, and the earlier you start taking care of your skin’s health, the better your results are going to be for many years to come. Did you know that your skin is the largest organ of your body? It is, in terms of both weight, between 6 and 9 pounds, and a total surface area, of about 20 square feet. Your skin separates the inside of your body from the outside world and it does some amazing things to keep your body from harm including some of the following,
Protects you from bacteria and viruses that can cause infections
Helps you sense the outside world, such as whether it is hot or cold, wet or dry
Regulates your body temperature
Activates the Vitamin D formed inside your body when it is exposed to the suns’ ultraviolet light
Your skin has many receptors (sensors) that perceive sensations such as touch, temperature changes, pressure and pain, and conditions that irritate, clog or inflame your skin can cause symptoms such as redness, swelling, burning, discolouration and itching.Allergies, irritants, your genetic makeup and certain diseases and immune system problems can cause things like dermatitis, hives, dry skin, eczema and other skin conditions. Many skin problems, such as acne, wrinkles and cellulite can also affect your appearance (and let’s be honest, they can also hurt the self esteem). Other factors, less contributed to disease, can be things like sundamage, bruises and scars from any previous injuries, which can also make people feel a little self conscious when it comes to showing off that body.
