Skin is the body’s largest organ and the one that gets the most attention.
Our skin is “us” – it’s the visible bit that everyone sees. It reflects our emotions, our well-being, our feelings, our health. Blushing, a “deathly pallor”, blue lips, goose-pimples, our skin gives away all our secrets. Including our age!!! Especially our age. Maybe our kidneys age too, but we can’t see the wrinkles on our kidneys, so, unless we need to, who spends time worrying about the state of their internal organs? Our time, energy and money is focused on what we can see.
OK, so skin tells all. We wish it wouldn’t and many of us spend oodles of dosh trying to hide the superficial signs of ageing. But have you ever wondered what happens below the surface? Knowledge is power. The more you understand what’s going on out of sight, the greater your chance of making the right decisions to keep your skin healthy, youthful and glowing. So, today we’re going to dive under your skin to find out what’s going on.
