Our skin is the largest organ in the body absorbing up to 60% of what is applied so this means that most of what you put onto our skin is absorbed.Our skin is designed protect and it is first line of defence against bacteria and virus.
We have all experienced at some point tight dry skin. Usually after sleepless night, too much stress over indulgence or due to to much alcohol. Since the skin is the biggest organ it becomes dehydrated...its a large thirsty organ.You can reduce this by reducing your daily intake of white sugar refined foods and fizzy drinks.
Avoid leaving make up on at night and try and get a couple of days a week where you don't apply any make-up..leave your skin free to breath. And always ensure you have clean pillow cases.
Food can act as a great source to balance to your skins appearance ..the brighter the fruit the better caretonoid-rich foods such as carrot juice and tomato will enhance the quality of your skin.
