What is the largest organ for the human body? Lungs? Liver? Heart? While all are vital to leading a healthy life, the largest organ for us humans is our … wait for it…skin! Think about it, your skin covers 100% of your body and therefore your skins health is important not only for your appearance (because who doesn’t want to look good), but also because your skin performs so many essential tasks for your body.
Here are a few ways your skin protects us, isn’t it time we do something in return?
· Protects you from bacteria and viruses. In this age of Coronavirus, the role your skin plays rises to even higher levels of importance. Dry itchy skin inevitably leads to more touching, scratching or rubbing of the irritated areas. Touching your face is proven to be a conduit to transmit disease. Properly nourishing your skin with non-drying products such as Marula Miracle Oil and Hydration Face Crème dramatically lessens the need to touch, scratch or rub the irritated areas. Fewer touches and proper Hydration means less chances of acquiring harmful viruses and bacteria.
· Protects you from the sun. Your skin also protects you from the sun's rays - specifically ultraviolet light - that can damage cells. Healthy skin produces vitamin D when exposed to the sun, and vitamin D is important for many body functions. Vitamin D deficiency has been shown to increase the harmful effects of Coronavirus.
· Protects all your other vital organs. Much like the roof on your house or car, your skin is designed to protect and guard what is on the inside. Dry, flaky, and brittle skin cracks easily which allows injuries to be worse than they possibly could be with properly nourished skin. A proper application of hydrating and nourishing your skin is your top defense. Using Essential Body Souffle can add the needed vitamin and oils to keep your skin from injuries.
