The skin is the largest organ of the body, and the largest part of the integumentary system. This body system provides a protective barrier to the outside world, protects the internal organs, allows you to feel and regulates body temperature.
The skin serves as a waterproof barrier that prevents all types of unwanted threats from entering your body. The skin also protects tissues and organs from strong sunlight and injury from harmful substances from the environment. The skin contains blood vessels, hair follicles, lymph nodes and sweat glands.
An intricate system of nerves links the skin to the brain. The skin can sense changes in temperature, pain, pressure or touch. When sensory messages are received by these nerves, they are sent to the brain. In this way we receive information about the environment.
Many factors contribute to skin, hair, and nail health, including a balanced diet, regular exercise, hormonal balance, and overall health. In general, when the body is healthy internally, it shows externally through beautiful and shiny hair, strong nails and glowing, beautiful skin. Daily supplementation with doTERRA Lifelong Vitality Pack® can support the integumentary system and promote healthy hair, skin and nails.
It’s important to cleanse and moisturize regularly with products that are right for your needs. On Guard® Foaming Hand Wash is a gentle, healthy alternative to harsh soaps that can dry out and irritate sensitive skin. If you don’t have water on hand, use doTERRA On Guard® Sanitizing Mist to cleanse your hands of bacteria and eliminate other germs.
Essential oils can be helpful in cleaning and beautifying hair, skin and nails. To minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, you can use Salubelle Anti-Aging Blend, Rose Touch, Geranium, Frankincense, or Anti-Aging Eye Cream. HD Clear® can be applied to the skin to promote clean skin and reduce breakouts. Correct-X® ointment helps the skin recover after minor injuries.
