Skin is the first line of defense against the outside world, your body’s outer layer of protection against chemicals, pathogens, and the environment, as well as an excellent indicator of your overall health and wellness. It’s essential to take care of it with the right skin care products, but other lifestyle choices you make can also have a profound effect.

The Importance of Healthy Skin

It boosts confidence

Healthy skin is a psychological booster. Skin that is smooth, supple and resilient is more attractive, so people with glowing, healthy skin feel good about themselves, which can help extend your longevity.

It protects the body

It’s the first line of defense against the outside world, your protection against daily assaults from natural elements and a physical defense against chemicals and pathogens in the environment.

It reflects your body’s health

Think of your skin as a mirror to what’s going on inside your body. Skin that looks dull, discolored or drab may be a sign that something internally is off balance, or that a condition or disease is present.
