Since your skin is the largest organ on your body, it has some very important roles. First of all, it protects our internal organs by holding them compactly inside and it acts as a front line of defense that is able to keep infection and can keep environment temperatures away from our internal organs. The skin is also our indicator when something isn’t right internally. Since the skin has such an important role, we should do our best to take good care of it.

Now that you have a clearer understanding of the important roles your skin has, its time to think about the daily toxins and exposures to the elements it is receiving. Your skin faces various elements from day to day such as the heat, cold, wind, sun, rain and pollutants. Knowing that your skin is exposed to the elements and pollutants, it should be no surprise that your skin is having moisture stolen from it. Moisture and oils that are necessary to keep it looking healthy and feeling smooth.

The skin is made up of millions of skin cells. Your skins cells are working round the clock to make new cells to replace the dead ones that are lost each day naturally. When you damage deep cells in your skin, you actually aid in creating wrinkles.

Turn on the television today and you are bombarded with infomercials and commercials for skin care products that promise to erase wrinkles or get rid of acne. Although there are many great products out there that do work very well, there are many more products that do not work. Many of these products now contain herbs where even 50 years ago it wasn’t really common to find natural herbs in facial cleansers and moisturizers.

Did you know that for thousands of years people have taken care of their skin by using homemade herbal products? Back in 3000 BC, the Egyptians started using fenugreek and roses on their skin for preventing wrinkles. many herbs like Aloe Vera have been found to be very good for the skin. Aloe Vera is a tried and true herb because it has many beneficial properties such as it is anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial and has recently been found to have immune-stimulating agents.

Most people seem to have a general concept of skin care and so they may sometimes put on sunscreen when they know they will be in direct sun or they will wash their face with soap and water here or there. Sunscreen is an essential weapon to prevent sun damage but do not just lather up on sunscreen on the days you know you will be exposed to the sun such as visiting the beach. you should be applying a daily sunscreen to at least your face and neck in the form of a moisturizer that contains SPF or makeup that has SPF. As far as soap and water facial washings go, you need to use facial cleansers that are designed specifically for the face. Regular soap is much to harsh and drying on the face.
