Different seasons may wreak serious havoc on your skin. The threat of sunburn from extreme summer sun will subside to give way to the threat of chapped lips and flaky skin from the extreme cold weather in the wintery season. This cycle of threats from different seasons underscores the importance of skin health all year round.

Your skin health and you

Your skin health says a lot about you. Your skin is the largest organ of your body and protector of everything that makes you. A healthy skin is an asset to the body; it helps regulate your body temperature. It acts as a natural filter of elements that affect your health, and it is constantly growing due to the rigorous and thankless jobs it is doing every day to keep you safe and healthy. Whatever you do; what you eat, what you drink, and the type of job you do, and the type of environment your body is exposed will have telling effects on your skin in good or bad ways.

Why skin health all year round is important?

The sunburn in hot summer sun and the dry, flaky skin in cold winter weather and the resulting discomforts should be a stern personal reminder of the importance of skin health all year round. Whether, during a sunny or cold day, your skin is affected, one way or the other. Therefore, taking necessary skin health precautions will give you all year round protection against skin problems and if otherwise, may lead to more complications.

Benefits of healthy skin

As the largest organ of your body, the skin plays the role of first line of defense in keeping you safe from infections and other unfriendly elements. It is for this reason that your skin needs to be in good health always. The following are benefits of a healthy skin.

Protection from infection: Your skin protects your body from the many viruses and bacteria you are exposed to daily. Healthy skin also helps you react better to important changes around you by feeling pain or pressure.

Protection against UV: It also protects you from the rays of the sun – specifically ultraviolet light – that can damage cells

The supply of vitamin D: Healthy skin produces vitamin D when exposed to the sun, and vitamin D is important for many body functions.

Keeping a healthy skin

Your skin is much more than an outer surface for the world to see. It protects you from bacteria, dirt and other foreign objects and the ultraviolet rays of the sun, and it is a filler that let you know if something is hot or cold, soft or hard, sharp or dull. It also helps in regulating your body’s fluids and¬temperature. Healthy skin is smooth without cracks on the surface. It is warm and is neither flaky nor moist and wrinkled. A healthy skin shows healthy personality.

Ways to maintain good skin health all year round

Good nutrition: Eat a well-balanced diet to maintain a healthy skin. Foods such as protein, fruits, vegetables and water ensure all-round skin health. Eating good food keeps your skin from stress and diseases.

Circulation: Your skin needs well-circulated blood and air. Your skin has a large number of blood vessels providing adequate circulation to it. Maintaining a good circulation system free of blockage is what your skin needs to stay healthy. To ensure a healthy blood supply, consider the following suggestions:

Observe simple skin hygiene

Conclusion

Looking after your skin health helps you stay healthy. A healthy skin helps resist any sign of aging and ward off likely disease. Therefore, the importance of skin health all year round cannot be overemphasized.
