Think of the skin as our bodies envelope! It protects us and is a means of interacting with the outside world. It has 3 layers: the epidermis (outermost layer), the dermis and the inner most layer the hypodermis. It also houses the hair on your head & body, nails, sweat glands and small glands that secretes a lubricating oil.
The skin is a barrier between you and the environment that prevents invasion of bacteria or other microorganisms and fends off chemical and physical assaults. In addition it helps regulate loss of water and helps regulates body temperature with thermolysis and thermogenesis.
It is a protective barrier but not impossible to pass through. It has the ability to act as an excellent method to absorb cosmetics or medical products.
When you look at it this way, it has a huge job in guarding and maintaining your health. It is a filter that attempts to restore balance keeping good stuff in and preventing bad stuff from getting in!
Assist your body with this function by thinking about what you put up against it & rub into it!
