Why skin care is so important

Did you know that your skin is the largest organ in your body? That should make it clear immediately why it is so important to take good care of your skin. But of course, things are a bit more complex than just that. The skin is an interesting organ, and at the same time difficult to understand. What goes on with our skin on a daily basis? And how is that impacted by skin care? Let’s take a look at the 3 most important factors.

Our skin changes every day, every minute

Your skin cells are changing all the time. The skin sheds it’s cells every day, every minute. That means that taking care of your skin is not something you do ‘now and then’, but on a daily basis. Implementing a skin routine should, therefore, be something you want to do – if you don’t have that already. How would that look?

–  Cleanse: You can use a cleanser product, or simply use water as a lot of dermatologist prescribe. Products make sense for people with extra sensitive skin.

–  Toner: Many dermatologists see this as optional, but for people with not overly dry or sensitive skin it could help tremendously. A toner will remove all leftover residue after cleansing. Try to see if this works for you.

–  Moisturize: Your skin loses moisture throughout the day. For the skin to be able to ‘repair’ itself and at the same time look healthy, moisture is needed. Try different products based on your skin type to see what works best for you.

–  Check: As your skin is the largest organ, it also poses some risks. When you spot moles or skin spots that worry you, always check them early. You can use the SkinVision app to self-check and get an instant risk indication for skin cancer signs. Download it here.

The future is now

How your skin will look in ten or twenty years, depends on the way you care for it now. When we age, the skin will start to show signs of that as well. That means wrinkles, lines, and other things you might not look forward to.

So make sure to take good care, but also to not use skin care products that might do more bad than good. Use products that are made for your skin type, and never use anything too aggressive. Find someone that can give you good personal advice.

Look good to feel good

Skin is an important factor for self-confidence. When we look good, we feel good. And our skin is a big part of our appearance. That’s why skin care is so important: it makes you look good, it keeps your skin healthy, and you will feel good.
