Summer Skin Care

How to keep your skin soft during the summer months

With the summer heat on its way, I wanted to share a couple of tips on how I take care of my skin.

The skin is the largest organ of the body and protects the internal organs, guards against infection, regulates temperature change and hydration levels through perspiration and stores water, fat and glucose.
It excretes waste, generates vitamin D when exposed to ultraviolet light, and secretes melanin to protect against sunburn.
It also has the capacity to form new cells to repair minor cuts and abrasions.
Essential oils can be very effective as a first line of defense toward various skin conditions, especially as we battle the summer sun.
