Have you ever stopped to think about how complex your skin is? It is the largest organ in your body and it does some pretty important stuff. Not only does it hold your body together, but it protects you from bacteria, regulates your body temperature, and allows you to feel the sensations of touch, heat, cold, and pain.
There are three layers to your skin:
Each of these layers is then made up of multiple layers. The outer layer of the epidermis is lipophilic (oil-loving) and hydrophobic (water-hating). (Remember we talked about hydrophobic when we were discussing soap molecules?) This helps your skin manage what is able to penetrate and be absorbed into your body and what stays on the surface of your skin. That's why you can go swimming or take a bath without absorbing all the water.
Whether or not (and the speed at which) your skin absorbs what it comes in contact with depends on multiple factors.
For these reasons, it is very important to keep your skin healthy and avoid putting potentially harmful chemicals on your skin. Remember that your skin does do an amazing job of preventing harmful chemicals from getting into your bloodstream, but even so, some are still able to penetrate.
So what should you do?
