Arguably the worst thing you can do to your skin is treat it like a fashion accessory…
…something that you only care about when you want to look good.
Your skin is your body’s largest organ and deserves to be cared for properly.
- Your skin is crucial to your overall health: it protects you from infection, for example, and regulates your body temperature;
- It can show signs of internal problems before more intrusive or expensive tests (like a blood exam or MRI);
- It’s one of the most important ways we communicate with each other and the world; and,
- Its health can impact how you feel about yourself (visible skin problems can lead to poor self esteem, bullying, and depression, for example).
