Skin is the body’s largest organ, our first and best defence against external aggressors. When skin is healthy, when its condition is compromised, its ability to work as an effective barrier is reduced.
Skin is the ultimate multi-tasker, performing many functions that are essential to our overall wellbeing.
It plays an important psychological role. As the indication of health, the condition of our skin affects how we feel about ourselves and how others view us.
What does skin protect us from?
The many external factors that skin protects us from include:
Changes in temperature and humidity: skin helps to regulate body temperature, control moisture loss and maintain the balance of fluids.
Disease: skin works to neutralise aggressors such as bacteria, viruses and pollution and prevent them for entering the body.
UV rays: over-exposure to these harmful rays generates free radicals – aggressive molecules that cause cell damage.
Pressure, blows and abrasion: skin recognises pain and alerts us to danger. It acts as a barrier and shock absorber.
Chemical substances: skin is our first line of defence against the aggressive formulas that we may encounter either in the workplace or at home if we use harsh cleansing products or inappropriate skincare.
Skin conditions can make us feel frustrated.
