The integument system, more commonly known as skin, is the largest organ in the body and processes important functions, including protection from physical, chemical, or thermal damage. The skin also helps in the regulation of body temperature, a process controlled by the nervous system. Sweating assists with the expulsion of urea and uric acid and helps cool the body. When exposed to sunlight, a chemical process produces vitamin D as well.
Now that you know the skin's essential functions, you can see who important it is to take care of it. Skincare is basically summed up in three words: cleanse, tone, and moisturize. But there is another step that should be added in, and that step is to exfoliate. Exfoliation is a process where you slough off the top layer of the epidermis to stimulate the growth of newer, fresher skin. This is done with scrubbing salts or bath scrubs. The grainy beads help scour off the dead cells. Another, easier was to exfoliate is to use a brush.
A skin brush is a specially designed brush of specific softness that works like the bath scrubs by flaking away the dead cells. This opens your pores, making it easier for toxins to leave your body. A gentle brushing motion can also help improve blood circulation, tightens and tones, get rid of cellulite, and overall leave skin feeling refreshed and refreshed. The Clarisonic Skin Care Brush in an example of this special type of exfoliate brush. It's like having a micro-dermabrasion treatment in the comfort of your own home!
So renew your skin, look younger and fresher. Try an exfoliating scrub on your face and see the results for yourself.
