ABOUT THE SKIN

The skin is the largest organ in the body and it protects us from injury and infections.

The skin:

  • plays an important role in appearance,
  • shields us from the effects of lights and heat,
  • helps in regulating our body temperatures,
  • helps relay information about our environment to the brain,
  • stores water, fat and vitamin D
  • plays an important role in immune function.

It is a barometer of our state of health and any poor nutritional habit can affect its appearance. It acts as an organ of expression, betraying our inner most feelings of anxiety by sweating, fear by pallor and anger by redness.

The skin changes as we age and everyone’s skin changes differently according to genetics, sun exposure, pollutants, lifestyle choices and so on. It is the sun’s ultra-violet rays (UVA) and (UVB) that are accountable for more skin damage than any other factors. Sun spots, liver spots, epidermal thinning, crow’s feet, fine lines and wrinkles progress with age. A tan no matter how light or deep, is the skin’s response to ultra-violet injury, increasing the chance of premature ageing and skin cancer, which is a growing health problem worldwide.

Sunscreens are the skin’s best friend.
