OK class, what is the largest organ of our bodies? That’s right, our SKIN! According to National Geographic, adults carry about 22 square feet of skin weighing approximately 8 pounds. For reference, that would be the size of a cozy blanket and weigh a little more than an average newborn baby. Our skin has many functions, including protection against heat, sun and environmental chemicals. One simple way we can care for our skin is to be mindful of the products we use on it. Handcrafted soap made from a combination of emollient oils is a good choice for cleansing and moisturizing this vital organ. If you are not currently using a good soap, I encourage you to search out a reputable soapmaker and start using the yummy stuff he or she produces. Your skin will thank you for it! Have a great weekend.
