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.
