It’s important to take care of your skin every day. Having great-looking skin not only makes you feel better about yourself—it also keeps you healthy!
The skin is a critical part of the body. It protects organs from the harsh effects of the environment and, as long as it’s intact, keeps infection out.
Skin also aids in the production of vitamin D and plays an important role in regulating internal temperature to keep the body insulated.
It also contains countless nerve endings that make it possible to feel tactile sensations—such as pressure or pain—and to react to temperature changes.
