Arguably the worst thing you can do to your skin is treat it like a fashion accessory…

…something that you only care about when you want to look good.

Your skin is your body’s largest organ and deserves to be cared for properly.

  • Your skin is crucial to your overall health: it protects you from infection, for example, and regulates your body temperature;
  • It can show signs of internal problems before more intrusive or expensive tests (like a blood exam or MRI);
  • It’s one of the most important ways we communicate with each other and the world; and,
  • Its health can impact how you feel about yourself (visible skin problems can lead to poor self esteem, bullying, and depression, for example).

Stop treating skincare as a fun thing to experiment with. Learn the basics: keep your skin clean, help it stay hydrated, and protect it daily with sunscreen.
