We all live in our own skin, so you’d think we’d know everything there is to know about it. But the truth is, skin is the largest organ in our bodies, and we’re learning more about it every day.
Here are four surprising facts about your skin:
1. As you age you lose bone-mass all over your body, and in your face too. By taking a calcium supplement you can support your facial structure and delay any natural shrinkage, which might make your skin look saggy.
2. You don’t just have to exercise your body, you can exercise your face too. Your face is made up of muscles after all, and those muscles will certainly look better toned rather than loose. So don’t forget to smile and express yourself often, it’s the best workout you can give your face.
3. Black and white heads are caused when your pores become blocked with dead skin, and oil. Blackheads are dark because of a chemical reaction between oxygen and the oil in your skin. They aren’t black because they are caused by dirt. Whiteheads on the other hand are slightly deeper in the skin, so they don’t go through the same chemical reaction with oxygen. The best way to fight either and prevent them both from coming back is to use a great Pond’s cleanser, every day.
4. The gorgeous older women we all admire have a secret. They know that by the time you hit your early 20s your skin is already starting to age. Don’t wait till you’re 40 to start caring for your skin. Start today.
