Skin – Prevention and Hygiene
The skin is too delicate and sensitive part of the human body. The skin is stretched under the influence of tiredness, and so wrinkles are created. On some places on the skin may appear stretch marks, or get hurt in accidents, leading to massive scarring, especially burns. The skin may crack i.e suffer frostbite or injuries, in particular diseases or dermatoses some of which may not be fathal but certainly resistant and don’t look nice, like acne, eczema, impetigo, hives (urticaria), mycosis, pityriasis, psoriasis.
Prevention and hygiene of the skin
All or almost all diseases, local or general, adversely affect the skin, but its sworn enemies are excessive eating, poisoning, excessive sunbathing and dirt. Excessive food consumption does well to the accumulated toxins in the skin, and therefore malfunction of the organs it contains, so the outcome is severe rashes, blackheads, redness, lichen, and the reason for the red, dirty or faded skin.
Preventive medicine is hepatotoxic diet, which is food without preservatives, fat meat, white bread, soda and mild white sugar. Nearly all poisoning is withheld at the hypodermic area, which is not nice to the eye. And worst for the beauty is poisoning conditioned to nicotine. For this reason the skin of smokers is gray, and more sensitive than the normal skin to dermatoses. Also excessive indulgence in alcoholic drinks can lead to a catastrophe for the skin. Too long exposure to the sun and bad weather conditions lead to the hardening of the skin’s middle layer, which dries the hypoderm and accelerates the formation of wrinkles.
Remember that dirt closes pores, prevents the skin to breathe, and interfere with its functions in thermal regulation, in other words weakens and exposes the skin to all sorts of attacks. Therefore alternately should be washed with hot water (which better cleans) and cold water (which better strengthens the skin). It is the same with the baths and showers. Soap which you use must be more natural, because skin cannot stand chemical detergents. Some types of skin allergies are obtained from some bathing foams or some toilet water.
