Facts about the skin and it’s importance

Skin is the largest organ of the human body, with a total surface area between 1.5 to 2m2.

Each cubic centimeter of skin is home to approximately one million bacteria. Maintaining microbial balance is therefore crucial not only for healthy skin, but also for overall wellbeing, as it provides local defense against invading organisms and keeps the immune system primed and ready for action.

The skin is a representative of the health and wellbeing of your internal body. If the internal body is suffering, so it manifests on the skin. The eyes are not the only windows to your soul!
