When it comes to our overall health and wellness, too often we place all of our focus and attention on exercise and nutrition – and neglect other important things like sleep, hydration and our skin health. Did you know that our skin is our biggest organ and furthermore, it’s the only organ that comes into contact with the rest of the world, hence the important role it plays in our overall health and wellbeing – there are even studies linking skin health to mental health.
So if you’ve neglected your skin and not given it the TLC it deserves, read more to find out why your skin health is just as important as your physical health.
- Taking care of your skin can can boost your mood
We all know there’s nothing quite as satisfying as coming home at the end of a long day and winding down with a skincare routine. While everyone’s routine looks different – some might opt for a classic 3-step (check out Esmi Skin Minerals 3-Step Skin Bundle here) while others might opt for something a little more detailed (like the Esmi Ultimate Skin Solution Bundle) – there’s no denying how amazing skincare feels – even if it’s just a gentle facial massage with your favourite cleanser. Skincare routines have even been said to release feel good chemicals in the brain – so turns out it’s actually no coincidence we feel happier after a little TLC.
- Healthy skin helps defend against infection and outside elements
Our skin doesn’t just have an aesthetic function – it’s also the first line of defence against a whole host of potentially harmful outside elements including viruses, bacteria, pathogens, UV rays and even pollution. Unhealthy skin is often dry and cracked and can immediately increase your risk of infection as more bacteria and other harmful elements can seep into broken skin. Keeping your skin healthy and hydrated is the easiest way to prevent this from happening – the best time to do this is immediately after a hot shower, to lock that hydration in.
- Your skin is your biggest organ
Your skin is your biggest organ so whatever products you put on it, your body will absorb. In the same way you wouldn’t intentionally eat anything with harmful chemicals, you shouldn’t be applying them to your skin. Esmi products are specially formulated to nourish your skin and mind with high quality ingredients that are free from harsh chemicals and parabens! Furthermore, they’re completely clean, vegan and cruelty-free!
