Learn About Skin Type

Tags:

The outer layer of skin is made up of dead skin cells, natural oils and lipids (fats).It is designed by nature to protect your deeper layers of skin from irritants and toxins. Most soaps and cleansers contain fragrances, colorants, antibacterial agents and many other ingredients that strip away these protective elements of the outer layer of the skin.

Daily use of most soaps and cleansers can greatly reduce your skin’s natural ability to repel the thousands of irritants and toxins that are commonly found in the home and work place. Once these irritants penetrate your outer layer of skin they can cause dry skin conditions, eczema, psoriasis, skin allergies and many other less desirable skin and health problems.

Dry skin and itchy skin are nature’s way of warning you that the protective elements of your outer layer of skin have been stripped away. When it comes to caring for your skin, vitamins and good nutrition can be just as beneficial as a good skin care treatment. Vitamins are important in keeping your skin looking and feeling healthy. They can also help prevent and treat any problem areas and skin disorders.
