The skin is the largest organ of the body and yet most of us don’t do enough to maintain our skin’s health. Americans spend millions on body products every month, but are they buying the right ones?

How much do you really know about what your skin needs, what type of skin you have, what kind of soaps and lotions are the best for your skin? What about those products that promise younger-looking, wrinkle-free skin, do they work?

One of your skin’s functions is to eliminate a portion of the body’s waste products through sweating. If toxins escape through the skin they disrupt the skin’s health integrity. This is one of the key factors behind many skin disorders including acne and possibly eczema and psoriasis.

Two decades ago skin cancer was rarely discussed, and was usually a problem mainly for older people. Today, the threat and reality of skin cancer is very real. Approximately one out of every five Americans will develop skin cancer in the course of his or her lifetime. In fact, skin cancer is the most common cancer that doctors see. Skin cancers represent fifty percent of all new cancers. Learn how to stay safe in the sun and protect your health and your looks! Even dark skin can get cancer.

Of course, if you are a young adult or teenager ACNE is a main concern for you. I hate to tell you that adults struggle with acne too at times, but most people do outgrow acne.
