Healthy Skin – Your First Line of Defense
We are all washing our hands many more times a day – and we should be. This can result in hands that are dry, cracked and irritated. The importance of keeping your hands in healthy shape is more than just looking good. Any disruption to the skin on the hands will have an effect on your overall immune system. Keeping your immune system healthy and strong is one of the most important things you can do to protect your health and well-being. We know that practicing good hygiene, eating well, exercising, and getting enough sleep are vital to a healthy immune system.
How does our skin affect our immune system?
To answer that question, let’s examine what the skin does for us in terms of our overall health.
The skin is part of a larger system, called the Integumentary System. This system performs vital functions for us and one of the most important is protection. Our skin is only a few millimeters thick, but it is by far the largest organ in the body. It protects us as our first line of defense against germs and infections that are in the environment and all around us, as well as regulates our temperature, protects us against UV rays, prevents dehydration and allows the elimination of waste through the pores.
When we are stressed for long periods of time, our Cortisol increases to deal with the stress. This is referred to as “the fight or flight” response. When this happens, our systems that normally heal and repair our skin are shut down. All of our energy goes to “fight the enemy”. This takes a dramatic toll on the health of our skin as precious resources are taken from the skin and given over to other organs for survival. This is why so many skin issues arise during times of stress and pressure. When our skin breaks down, toxins may enter more easily into the body, causing increased inflammation and weakening our immune system. Keeping the skin strong is vitally important to our ability to stay healthy.
