All too often, skincare is seen as just a cosmetic and done merely for appearances rather than in the interest of good health. This sentiment couldn’t be farther from the truth – skin is the body’s biggest organ and the main barrier against infection so taking care of it is vital to your overall health. A good, consistent skincare routine won’t just help you skin appear more youthful, clear, and radiant but it’ll, keep bones and muscles healthy, keep harmful bacteria and other microbes out, and lessen the risk of developing severe issues like skin cancer. Additionally, you’ll get an added boost of confidence when your skin looks and feels great!
Skin cells play a very important role in keeping both bones and muscles healthy – they turn sunlight into vitamin D that the body then uses to help absorb calcium. The ultraviolet B (UVB) rays which come from the Sun interact with a protein in the skin called 7—DHC, creating the active form of vitamin D, vitamin D3. Maintaining adequate amounts of the vitamin are vital to bone health at all ages. Children need vitamin D to build strong bones and adults require it to keep these bones string and healthy, illustrating the fact that skincare is important in all stages of life and has positive effects for more than just your skin.
As the largest organ that’s the first part of your body to interact with the world, the skin is your main defense against harmful bacteria. The skin is semi-waterproof, meaning when healthy and unbroken it keeps potentially harmful external bacteria out. The outermost layer of the skin, called the epidermis, does a lot of this work. The epidermis has the demanding task of keeping water, nutrients, and the rest of the things which keep your body functioning in and potentially harmful organisms out. Parts of the body that are more susceptible to injury like the feet or the palms of your hands have a very thick layer of epidermis, but not your face so many skincare products give it the boost it needs to keep it protected. When skin becomes dehydrated or irritated the barrier can become less effective and skin can easily crack, giving outside germs and more a way inside, underscoring the importance of a good skincare routine. Having healthy, hydrated, and happy skin is a key to staying healthy all year long. Within skin tissue, there are specialized immune cells called Langerhans cells which are a part of the skin’s microbiota – a biome that consists of millions of different bacteria – within the skin’s tissue which help fight invading organisms. Prevention is often easier than correction or treatment.
As any dermatologist will tell you, sun protection is an essential part of skincare and this is because it’s one of the most effective ways of preventing damage from harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays and skin cancer. While sunlight is important to building and maintaining strong bones, too much can be damaging. Practicing a good skincare routine that includes sunblock with an SPF of at least 30 lets your body get the sunlight it needs to stay healthy without the risk of over exposure.
