Introduction to Skin Health

Health skinIt’s the largest organ in the body but one we don’t think about much – unless, of course, we get a pimple, have an itchy rash or spot a wrinkle. But skin actually has a lot of vital functions beyond appearance. Skin is our barrier to the environment, it regulates our body temperature and it plays a role in immune function. Being our barrier to the world also means that our skin is more exposed to environmental factors than any other organ in the body. As a result, the skin is easily damaged.
