Take Care of Your Skin

Did you know that your skin is the largest organ in the human body? It also comprises about 16% of an adult's body weight. Skin is highly sensitive to the world around it.

Here are a few facts to keep in mind, especially with winter rapidly approaching:

  • Dry skin actually starts days before you can see it.

  • It takes as long as eight hours for skin to replenish the moisture lost during a shower.

  • Only water can actually hydrate skin. Moisturizing lotions work by locking in the skin's own moisture, preventing further loss.
