Skin is your body’s largest organ. Your skin helps to keep your body temperature even. If you get too hot, blood vessels near the surface of the skin, called capillaries will enlarge to let the warm blood cool down. Your skin will also produce sweat from the sweat glands when you get too warm. The sweat evaporates and cools the skin. If you get too cold, the skin makes the capillaries small, preventing not too much heat from escaping from your skin.
YOUR SKIN MAKES VITAMIN D
Your skin makes vitamin D when the sun shines on it. Vitamin D is important for the health of your bones and other parts of your body. Although, skin makes vitamin D, you only need a little bit of sun and never too much. So don’t ever forget your sunscreen.
AT THE AGE OF 20, YOUR SKIN IS ALREADY AGING
You are never too young to start taking care of your skin. In fact, the earlier you begin the better. A 20 year old loses collagen in their face at the same rate as a 40 year old, so don’t wait to start taking care of your skin or using advanced products, skincare is for all ages and all skin types. By using the right products right away, you can help preserve your skin, delay collagen and elastin loss and other signs of aging.
YOUR FACE IS SHRINKING
It sounds strange but as we age we lose bone mass, including the bones in our face. Medical studies show that your face really does shrink as you age. Taking calcium supplements will help support the facial structure and will help to prevent the appearance of skin “hanging off” the face.
VITAMINS IS ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT SKINCARE PRODUCTS THAT MOST PEOPLE DON’T USE
One very important skincare product every woman should have is a high-quality vitamin. Your skin reflects how healthy you are and as you age, your daily vitamins should include omega-3 oils and anti-oxidants and your skincare products should be rich in antioxidants and vitamins.
