Skin is one of the best gifts of nature to us, a magic garment which is soft, waterproof, strong and self repairing. It is not just to cover up the internal organs and look beautiful; it does a lot more than that. With a layer of fat present underneath, it regulates body temperature and protects internal delicate organs. It also restricts foreign particles like germs, bacteria and dust from entering our body.

Along with that skin produces oils and wax which works as a natural moisturizer. The sweat, which is produced by the sweat glands present in the skin, helps to maintain the temperature of the body by evaporation, not only this, it also secretes waste products, out of the body.

It might be surprising to know that, Vitamin D is essential to digest milk. It is manufactured by skin through sunlight. Some similar interesting facts about our little known SKIN are as follows:

• A human skin is replaced about 1000 times over a life time.

• The skin on the palm has no melanin and hair (Melanin is a substance that gives skin and hair its color).

• Skin swells when it absorbs water, hence, it is best to put moisturizer on after getting out of water to hold all that moisture in.

• Seventy percent of the dust in our home consists of shed human skin.

• In a lifetime the average person sheds enough skin cells to fill an entire 2 storey house.

• Our skin sheds around 30,000 to 40,000 dead skin cells every minute. Hence, it is very important to exfoliate the skin to keep it glowing, using a good body scrub.

• This also means that, approximately in a month’s time, our body has a new layer of skin cells.

Now, when we are talking about skin, it is right time to discuss a little about “How to take care of our precious skin?”, so here are some very useful tips to take care of your gift:

• Water helps in removing toxic material out of the body, but drinking water is just not enough to keep your skin healthy, along with that you need to have a healthy diet and avoid junk food.

• Regular exercise helps in increasing blood circulation which increases oxygen and secretes such chemicals which ultimately diminishes wrinkles and makes the skin look young.

• A sound sleep is very necessary for a healthy mind and body, it not just refreshes your mind but also replenish your skin.

• Sunscreen is very important for your skin, so it is recommended by skin experts to carry it on any outdoor time.

• During winter season skin is more dehydrated because the air in the surrounding is anhydrous so all the moisture from the skin is evaporated.

• Last but most important “SMOKING”, it has worst effect on our skin, as it tends to slow the flow of blood thus preventing skin to get sufficient oxygen and nutrients.

Now, when it is known, “How incredible our skin is?” and “How can we take proper care of it?”, then it must be taken care of properly, as this will ultimately help us to live a healthy and beautiful life.
