I mentioned the need for their skin with water before, but it is a very important issue that deserves its own. We sometimes forget our skin – until something goes wrong! Your skin is the largest organ of your body. The skin protects us from infections, protects us from harmful effects of sunlight, and helps regulate our body temperature. But what most of us think of skin is how it looks. We've all seen people skin or healthy skin. Your skin has a yellowish, pasty, or drawing. Not a pretty sight.
And, of course, what the skin needs is moisture. When the body is not hydrated enough moisture, there is not enough in the tissues of the skin, and can contribute to the drawn and haggard appearance goals. The skin also needs hydration to cleanse the body of toxins. Your body is constantly in contact with things that are not good for us. These things can come from the food we eat, air we breathe, and things that come into contact with the touch.
(And in some around the world – thank God not usually in North America! – Even the water itself can bring in toxins). The easiest way the body rids itself of toxins is through washing. Hand washing is probably the best we can do to prevent infections, either their own or someone else. Bath or shower (and shampoo) will also get rid of toxic materials our bodies do not need. But the cleaning works internally, too.
