Are you taking care of your body's largest organ—your skin? Skin is vitally important. It performs many functions that are essential to the body's health and well-being, like protecting internal organs and regulating temperature. Caring for our skin is important to our overall health. But it's natural that we want it to look good too. Luckily, many of the same measures we can take to keep it healthy will also help it look young and more blemish-free.
You skin plays a crucial role. https://d33ljpvc0tflz5.cloudfront.net/dims3/MMH/crop/5616x3757%2B0%2B0/resize/580x388/quality/75/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fd26ua9paks4zq.cloudfront.net%2F2a%2F0f%2F7493ab9d44af84ab8c9f37423b7d%2Fimage-gettyimages-123468910.jpg
The single biggest factor you can control in your skin's appearance is sun exposure. Ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun can penetrate the skin to cause damage. This can lead to problems like wrinkles, liver spots, thickening skin, and both benign (noncancerous) and malignant (cancerous) skin tumors. Take these steps to protect your skin from sun damage.

Use a sunscreen with a sun protection factor (SPF) of 15 or higher. Look for sunscreen labeled as broad spectrum to ensure that it blocks both types of UV rays. And don't forget to protect your lips—use lip balm with SPF protection. Make it convenient to protect your skin everyday by keeping both lotion and lip balm handy in your bathroom.
