SKIN: your precious natural coat

+ enlarge

Pink, coffee or ivory-white, the skin dresses up the body in a precious natural vestiture. And, the more we acknowledge it is our one and only “coat” the more we grant it with higher importance. Just think: have you ever heard of somebody getting another skin for the latter one got jaded? Funny, huh? Here is why it’s important that the skin receives all our attention, hygiene, and protection that it deserves.

Just by looking at somebody's skin, one can tell a lot: age, occupation, emotional history, climate in his home country and even the internal affections. Skin really is the picture of our outer and inner life, just like Oscar Wilde put it in “The picture of Dorian Gray”. I'd say – less poetically than Mr. Wilde – skin is like a calling card….however, not solely.

More than just a cover

You know it: a neat skin radiates beauty. And still, the skin is more than just a beautiful outward cover. American scientist, Bernadine Healy, claimed that skin is not appreciated at its real value, because skin has a lot of functions such as: sensory, thermic, protection and also communication with the brain and entire organism.

No 1 enemy

Just like an impenetrable armor, skin protects the human body against all external environment factors. Among these, the Sun. Well, you may love it, praise it, long for it, but Sun is considered skin’s No 1 enemy because of its violent action in the past years. Its rays have a direct action on the middle skin layer, the derma, a place where the collagen reserves reside. When the derma gets affected wrinkles and pouches appear. However, these are the most insignificant negative effects of being overexposed to Sun. A vast scale of skin diseases continuing up to cancer is what nowadays people have to deal with.

That’s why dermatologists say the best way to protect our skin is by using Sun protection products. But there are a lot more ways to trick the Sun! Covering your head with a hat, your eyes with glasses or using natural oils (olive, grapes, and Shea butter) should also help.
