    Our skin is the largest organ our bodies have and it has many functions. It does the following: protects us from infections and diseases, performs metabolic functions, and regulates our body temperature. It is also always replenishing itself by shedding its top level allowing new skin cells to emerge. Everybody should practice good skin care to protect this essential organ.

  • Yep, as everyone has said water is essential for good skin. It is amazing how quickly we can forget that.

    All part of helping your body detox itself of all those impurities.

  • For me, cutting out or dramatically reducing sugar and grains (grains turn to sugar in the body) cleared me right up. And plenty of filtered water, of course.

  • I agree that the best way to take care of your skin is the natural way, not medication. Healthy eating and drinking pure filtered water is essential. Coconut oil is great for the skin also. Thank you for the article.

  • I was on mission with a guy who looked like he was in his twenties, and I found out he had a 16 year old son and was himself 42. I asked him how he kept himself looking so young. His response was that he always used moisturizer after he showered. He told me once all the pores are clean and open, the moisturizer worked much better. Try this trick at home and see if it works for you.

  • I think one of the biggest threats to one’s skin is the effect of the sun and its UV rays. Its easy today to prevent this, yet while there are now many alternatives, people just don’t seem to be taking advantage of them.

  • Nice posting for a good and healthy skin.

  • Exercising is a great way to maintain your health. Regular exercise helps maintain hormone balance in your body. It opens the pores of your skin, remove wastes and toxins and prevents against acne and pimples . Exercise also helps keep your skin tone even.

  • I love to drink 2 liters of water daily, which really works.
