What’s the largest organ of your body? Liver? Lungs? Brain? Oh, no. Our organs are not only inside our bodies. In fact, one of them - which is the largest - is outside, and it fully covers our bodies. It’s our skin.
From head to toe, our skin covers the whole body, and the most crucial function of our skin is not the aesthetic aspect. Our skin protects us from the environment - harmful chemicals, temperature, and sunlight. It produces vitamin D which is one of the essential elements for our health. And we need to take care of our skin as if it was our heart - believe us it’s not less important.
Some Fun Facts About Skin
The skin makes up almost 15% of your total body weight.
We have thousands of sweat glands all over our bodies: one square inch of skin has up to 300 sweat glands.
Our skin renews itself every 28 days.
We all lose about 4 kg of skin each year, as a result of skin regeneration.
Our skin is the mirror of our health: in most cases, skin changes show a medical condition or changes going on in your body.
How to Take Care of Your Skin?
When setting up a skincare routine, many people forget about body skin. It’s not only your face that needs good skincare: your body skin is equally exposed to the damage of the environment. Moreover, there’s no perfect weather when your body's skin is fully safe.
The cold air during winter damages your skin by drying it and making it sensitive, increasing the risk of inflammation. The hot and dry air dries your skin while making it sweat more, and produce more sebum while increasing the risk of breakouts and dangerous skin conditions.
And your body skin is exposed to these risks too - that’s why you should take care of it as you do with your facial skin. Here we have some simple yet life-changing steps for you to set up good body skin care.
Exfoliate, exfoliate, exfoliate
Exfoliation is a fundamental step for getting happy skin. But be careful, don’t overdo it. Based on your skin type, your exfoliation routine may be different. For some of us, it’s a great way to exfoliate with a dry-brushing body brush. For others, it may feel too harsh - if your skin is sensitive, then go for milder options. For example, bath gloves may be a cool option to get rid of dead skin while not harming your skin.
Sun Protection Mode: On
No matter what your skin type is, you will always need good sunscreen with a clean formula. Protecting your body's skin with a sunscreen cream will not only make your skin tone even, without tan lines on your body. It will save your skin health - you already know that too much sunlight without proper protection can result in skin cancer. When possible, seek shade in the daytime and wear protective clothing.
Limit Bath Time
This paragraph is also for those ducks living in the bathroom day and night. Your skin doesn’t get that dirty, and you don’t need to wash it so much that you take off its natural oil. Limit your bath time, especially if you forget to control the water temperature and turn on the hot water frequently. Remember that warm water is enough to have a relaxing bath that will not harm your skin and will leave it comfortable right after.
Choose Mild Soap
No matter if you use bar soap or shower gel, check the ingredient list twice: remember, no harsh elements, no artificial fragrance, and no strong detergents. Choose only mild cleansers, made from organic natural ingredients.
Your Skin Deserves Proper Moisture
The habit of using a rich, non-toxic moisturizer right after a bath is a game-changer. You know how comfortable it feels when you moisturize your damp skin when you go out of the bathroom, right? Imagine how you would feel if you did the same daily. Soft, smooth body skin every day.
