Did you know skin is your body’s largest organ? Adults carry some 8 pounds and 22 square feet of it! Healthy skin is very important to your overall well-being. Skin does so much more than simply make us look presentable-it serves as a waterproof shield and insulation against extreme temperatures, damaging sunlight and harmful chemicals. It also exudes antibacterial substances that prevent infection and manufactures Vitamin D for converting calcium into healthy bones. Skin is also a huge sensor packed with nerves that keep the brain in touch with the outside world. At the same time, skin allows us free movement, proving itself an amazingly versatile organ.
Healthy skin is very important to your overall well-being, and we’re here to help you take care of it.
