Today, people all over the world are increasingly recognizing the benefits of investing in protecting their skin, as the attached infographic on the global skin care industry highlights.
Not only does skin protect the body from the environment, but it also provides an indicator of what is going on internally. The liver’s role is to eradicate toxins, but when its function is impaired, the organ is unable to remove them completely. In such instances, toxins can make their way into the skin, triggering rashes and other skin conditions including liver spots, eczema, dermatitis, and even premature wrinkles. Yellowing of the skin or ‘jaundice’ is also a sign that liver function has been compromised.
Since the skin is the largest and strongest defense against infection, it is important to take care of it. An effective skin care regime helps to keep the skin’s outermost layer, the epidermis, intact and lock moisture in the inner layers, the dermis and hypodermis.
A good skin care routine helps an individual’s skin to appear more hydrated, diminishing the appearance of visible pores, under-eye circles and fine lines. Protecting the skin from the sun’s harmful rays helps to prevent hyperpigmentation, blemishes and sun damage.
As an individual gets older, their skin loses collagen, brightness and hydration. A good skin care routine helps skin to look younger, healthier and more radiant. Skin naturally loses elasticity over time, becoming saggy and crepe-like. An effective skin care regime helps to even texture and restore skin firmness.
