Did you know that your skin is an organ that helps protect your insides from being exposed to harmful components and regulates the temperature of your body?
Taking care of your skin will keep you looking your best and help your whole body stay healthy.
It is good to be informed about skin care rituals because like most things, it is easier to prevent an issue than fix one.
Don’t forget to slather yourself in sunscreen (minimum SPF 15.)
Reapply every two hours. Even if it’s snowing outside or it appears to be cloudy, the sun’s rays can still burn you.
Sunburns increase your risk of cancer and repeated sun exposure can cause wrinkles and leathery looking skin.
Wash your face once or twice per day.
Clean off the dirt, sweat, and oil from your face each night. Don’t wash too much or your skin could become too dry, as you you’re stripping it of natural oils.
Find a moisturizer that is right for your skin. You need to figure out whether you have oily or dry skin, or a combination of both, to determine which product is best.
That said, all skin types, including oily, need to be moisturized.
Once per week, exfoliate your skin to get rid of the dead cell pileup. With a scrub product, specific brush, or gloves, it is easy to exfoliate.

Your skin is a vital organ that should be appreciated and treated with proper care.
When you make the effort to care for your skin, this leaks over into other avenues of your life and you can become an all-around healthier person.
