Your Skin


If you could stop and really see your skin for what it is, you would be amazed.

Everything effects it.  From the food you eat, to the weather outside, including the products that you slather over it every day.
Believe it or not, our skin is the body's largest organ.  It doesn’t simple serve as a protective defense between your insides and the rest of the world, but also helps regulate body temperature and acts as a filter.  Skin exists in a constant state of growth, with old cells dying as new cells are forming.  It's affected by every aspect of our lives, from what we eat to where we live.  Healthy skin is better able to fight signs of aging, heals much faster and staves off potential disease better than unhealthy skin.

So why then do many of us seriously neglect this very important part of our bodies?  We take it for granted, almost thinking of it as an old overcoat that will be there for us no matter what happens.  Nothing more, nothing less. It’s just skin right?  WRONG!!

Proper skin care is vital if you are in any way shape or form bothered about your physical appearance.  Unhealthy skin tends to appear sallow and dull, whereas healthy skin appears full and vibrant.  Wrinkles develop with more ease and sink deeper if your skin is dehydrated and unhealthy, and it can result in uneven patches that have a mottled colour.  When skin is unhealthy it loses elasticity, which can make it sag and appear thin.

More importantly, proper skin care is not only about looking good, it's about staying healthy.  Just as a poor diet will ultimately affect our health, poor skin care habits can lead to rashes, sores, acne and wrinkles.  Unhealthy skin is more susceptible to disease, infection and is more likely to scar after an injury.  Proper care is particularly important for people who experience skin issues, such as psoriasis, or have skin allergies.

Skin is constantly growing and changing, so you have to remain vigilant in caring for it.  Yes it may sound hard work but are we not worth it?  Ever wondered what makes your skin prone to ageing?  Why some people seem to have sickeningly soft, young looking skin way into their late years?

Book yourself (or get together with the girls) and undertake a Derma Dio Skin Consultation and prepare to be AMAZED.
