Por qué debes cuidar + tu piel (y no es por estética)

Why you should take care of your skin (and it's not for aesthetics)

As the largest organ in the body, the skin has a complex structure that performs a series of functions essential for human life. Although humans have often focused on the appearance and beauty of the skin as the main concerns with this great organ, the truth is that we must take care of the skin not (only) for aesthetic reasons but also because the lack of hygiene and care It can have terrible long-term health consequences.

Reasons why you should take care of your skin beyond its appearance

~---->It is responsible for producing vitamin D that it receives from the sun

~---->It is the natural regulator of body temperature

~---->Perceive the outside world through touch (cold, heat, humidity)

~---->Protects from infections and external aggressions

~---->Prevents dehydration

We can survive without several organs in the body or, at least, without part of them, but currently it is not possible to survive without this immense organ. Given this, we must ask ourselves if we are taking enough care of our skin.

The great enemies of skin health

In the same way that the sun is essential for physical and mental health, it can also become the great enemy of our body, becoming excessively lethal. As Paracelsus said: "Nothing is poison. Everything is poison. Measurement makes the poison." It is recommended to expose yourself to the sun daily for 30 minutes but always with adequate sun protection. In this regard, it is necessary to take into account that no topical sunscreen protects 100% from UV rays, so it is essential to take a series of complementary measures:

  • Limit sun exposure.
  • Apply sunscreen several times a day.
  • Maintain hydration.
  • Avoid the hottest hours.

In addition to these, supplementation with some oral sunscreen and clothing with a UV filter can provide all the protection that the skin needs.
