Your skin, your armor

Everyday your skin is your shield to the world, your protection and your armor. The human body and the skin covering it, is incredible. Our tissues are completely adaptive to everything we internally and externally come in contact with. It is important to care for your skin just like you care for your internal body with healthy eating habits and exercise.

Your skin helps and protects you in many ways. It helps to regulate temperature, keeps out harmful bacteria, helps our bodies to synthesize vitamin-d and it even has immune system assisting qualities to fight infection. (Shier, Butler, Ricki Lewis. Hole’s Human Anatomy & Physiology. New York: The McGraw-Hill Companies Inc., 2007)
