Protect Your Skin from Harmful Chemicals and Other Dangers

Natural SkinOur body’s largest organ is our skin!  It weighs about 8 pounds and covers approximately 22 square feet!  Skin protects our bodies, helps keep our bodies at the right temperature, and allows us to have a sense of touch.  It is made up of three layers.  The outer protective layer is called the epidermis.  The middle layer, which contains nerves, blood vessels, oil and sweat glands, is called the dermis.  The last layer, which is mostly fat to keep us warm and to provide cushion, is called the subcutaneous layer.
Because our skin has so many functions, it has been called the master organ system.  Here are 10 basic  tips for keeping your skin healthy :

1)    Stop smoking or never start!  Tobacco smoke dries out your skin and constricts blood vessels robbing your skin of essential nutrients.
2)    Drink 8-10 glasses of water per day to keep your skin moist and supple.
3)    Protect your skin from the harmful effects of sun exposure.
4)    Eat a healthy, well balanced diet with plenty of fruits and vegetables.
5)    Clean skin is healthy skin.  Remove make-up before going to bed.
6)    Moisturize!  It helps to restore the oils that our skin has and helps to keep the skin hydrated.
7)    Get adequate sleep for body restoration.
8)    Exercise!  It helps keep the skin elasticity.
9)    Consider taking a daily multivitamin with anti-oxidants.
10)    If you have skin problems such as itching, dryness, suspicious moles or rashes, consult your physician.

According to the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics, Americans use an average of 10 personal care products each day, resulting in exposure to more than 126 unique chemicals and this does not include the many undisclosed chemicals in “fragrance.”  Toxic exposures from personal care products add to our daily dose of hazardous chemicals from air, water, food and other consumer products.

Because the skin is extremely permeable, cosmetic ingredients are absorbed through the skin.  Some chemicals may penetrate the skin in significant amounts, especially when left on the skin for long periods, such as in the case of facial makeup.  One study showed that 13% of the cosmetic preservative butylate hydroxytoluene (BHT) and 49% of the carcinogenic pesticide DDT (which is found in some cosmetics containing lanolin) are absorbed through the skin.
