Your Healthy Skin

Do you know that your skin is the largest organ in your body? It performs many vital function yet it is often taken for granted.

Your skin is your body’s guard, protecting your internal organs against bacteria, chemicals, and external shock. It is also the body’s thermostat, regulating the body’s temperature through the sweat glands. How you take care of your skin is reflected in its present condition and in the years to come.

Basic skin care

· Basic skin care includes bathing at least once a day with soap and water.

· Try to clean your face at least twice a day; in the morning and before you retire to bed in the evening

· If we do not wash our face the dust and dirt will block the pores and may cause pimples and blackheads. Pimples are due to the blockage and infection of the sebaceous glands of the skin. To get rid of pimples try washing the face with a cleanser with antibacterial properties. There are also many pimple creams and gels, which you can apply to dry up the pimple.

· Moisturize at least twice a day: once in the morning, and in the evening before going to bed. And it is not true that those with pimples need not moisturize. They should use a water-based moisturizer instead of an oil-based one which may further irritate the skin.

The above info are based on my readings.
