Our skin is the largest organ in our body, it is our first line of defence. Our skin is composed of two main layers the epidermis (outer layer) and the dermis (inner layer). The cells in the epidermis are continuously replaced by cells from the bottom layer. Exfoliating the skin will allow this process to occur sooner, promoting youthful skin. Our skin is vital to our emotional and physical health.
– Protects us from the weather
– Regulates our body temperature
– Gives us our sense of touch
Our skin protects us from a number of harmful things that occur in everyday life. Our skin protects us from the outside and also helps us preserve our internal fluids and organs.
Our skin protects us from:
– Chemicals and toxins in skincare products (MOST OF THEM)
– UV radiation
Anti- Bacterial Naturally:
Our skin secretes oil that naturally protects us from bacteria in addition to fighting off disease. Using skincare products and makeup contain harsh chemicals which demolish this amazing defence strategy.
Vitamin D is vital to our overall health but especially vital to our immune system. Our skin is our number one producer of vitamin D.
– When you are in the sun you feel better, that is a result of loads of vitamin D
Protection from Injury:
The skin is our first signal to the brain when we have been hurt. Our skin warns us when we get too close to sharp objects. When our skin is healthy it increases sensitivity allowing you to react to threats sooner.
There is no question the emotional connection that arises from a simple touch, skin to skin. Little touches can arouse our body, sensually, spiritually, emotionally and sexually.
Our skin is our passageway to removing toxins from our skin. Clean pores allow your body to expel waste. Now this doesn’t mean showering every moment because our skin has naturally oils that are needed to protect us.
Signs of Illness:
Our skin is the first to tell us that something isn’t right. When we are ill we may turn pale or even get acne in certain areas of our skin. This information can be valuable to diagnosing yourself.
With proper treatment of our skin we can slow down and even reverse the aging process, keeping skin healthier longer. The best products to use on our skin are all-natural, free of toxins, organic, and preservative free. Most of the products we find in our retail stores contain an abundance of toxins and chemicals that disrupt our skin and encourage aging. Check out our skincare products – all-natural, organic, vegan, and made with love.
