Our skin is built tough. As the largest organ in our body, our skin has a big job to do! The primary function of our skin is to be a barrier against pathogens, temperature changes, radiation, chemicals, and other invaders that can harm our bodies. Human skin has multiple layers with a variety of functions that keep us safe! While it’s a little obvious, it’s important to note that our skin is also responsible for a variety of sensations, like heat, to add an additional level of awareness. Don’t forget to listen to your skin because often it is telling you something about what’s happening in or directly outside your body. Itchiness, dryness, redness, sensitivity and other sensations could be signs that your skin needs extra love!
Our skin has a big job and may often be given some rough treatment, it’s important that we take care of it and give our skin the care that it needs. From moisturizing, to using gentle cleansers, to applying sunscreen everyday, there are many things that you can do to keep your skin happy and healthy!
