The skin is our body’s largest organ. And from time to time, it needs our help so it can do everything it is supposed to do.

Our skin doesn’t only shield us from external factors, it also provides the organs and bones with protection against bangs and bashes. In addition, it prevents the body from dehydrating and forms melanin as protection against UV. Last but not least, it regulates the body temperature and is our biggest sensory organ. How can we help the skin to do its job? With a balanced diet, a sufficient supply of fluids, and the right skin care products! This also includes cleaning the skin with products that have a neutral pH value and don’t dehydrate the skin. However, it is also important to supply the top layer of skin with moisture and lipids. With this aim, people who are health-conscious are increasingly looking to medicinal plants to keep their skin healthy as well.

The lower and middle layers of skin primarily consist of connective tissue. And so these layers are also most likely to benefit from a balanced diet and lots of fluids. Only the top layer of skin, the epidermis, can be helped with external, natural skin care: nutrients, hydration, and lipids. But moisture needs to be stored in the uppermost layers of skin as well. This is best achieved with substances that bind moisture – i.e., glycerin, urea, and low-molecular hyaluronic acid. Natural plant lipids leave the skin feeling supple and support the skin’s own functions. They are able to strengthen the skin barrier, stimulate cell growth, and contribute to reducing inflammation. Some of them even contain antioxidants and therefore protect against premature aging.
