Skin

Healthy skin


What is skin?
Skin is the thin  layer  of the tissue  forming the  natural  outer covering of our body. Skin is the  largest organ in the body . Subcutaneous tissue is the innermost layer of the skin located under the dermis and consisting mainly of fat. Subcutaneous fat acts as a shock absorber and heat insulator, protecting underlying tissues from cold and mechanical trauma.  Did you know that the sweat glands and  the  minute mussels attached to hair follicles originate in subcutaneous tissue?


Why  is our skin important?
Our skin is important because it protects everything inside our body. It's important to protect our skin from the sun; so we do not get skin cancer. If we protect our skin, we will have less wrinkles and less freckles and beauty marks.
Our skin is important  because  it protects  all our veins, blood vessels, arteries, and tissue. Skin is also a waterproof covering that keeps us cool in the hot, and it also moderates our temperature.


How do we take care of our skin?
We take care of our skin by washing ourselves properly. I would also recommend that we use a cleanser and moisturizer that do not contain harsh chemicals. I've also heard that sun screen in excess has cancer causing agents so be wary. Try to stay away from the drying agents and too much sun ( sun is healthy but burning is not).


What happens if we don’t take care of our skin?
If we don’t take care of our skin we could get sore skin, warts, pimples and more skin problems. Once it gets worst we will  have  skin cancer and more skin problems therefore we really need to take good care of our skin.
