The 6 Vital Functions Of Your Skin


Unhappy with your skin? Want to look less tired? Unsure how to use those expensive skincare products? We can help!

Your skin is the largest organ in your body and it literally holds you together. It’s your 1st line of defense against the outside world and shields you from harmful sun rays, bacteria, and chemicals.

Without you even thinking about it, your skin constantly regulates your body temperature, produces vitamin D, and allows you to experience the world around you. Essentially your skin is here to protect you, not look perfect!

As you age, your skin cycle slows down and dead cells accumulate on the surface of the skin causing dullness, sagging, fine lines, and wrinkles.

At first sight, a skincare regimen may seem intimidating or even time-consuming but it’s really a self-care ritual, mindset, and lifestyle meant to give your body the essentials it needs to thrive.

Investing proactively in your skin’s health will allow you to see long-term improvements and maintain your skin’s beautiful aura. Knowing your skin and treating it well are the keys to resilient young skin. The more you care for it, the better it will care for you in the long run.

Here are the 6 vital functions our skin plays to maintain homeostasis (balance) in our body:


It holds all of our organs in and protects them from outside invaders.


Permits penetration and transportation of certain chemicals into the skin.


Sebum (oil) is secreted through hair follicles to nourish our skin.


Sweating assists our bodies in expelling waste and cooling the skin.

Heat Regulation

Maintaining a stable internal body temperature.


Skin nerve endings transmit signals to the brain, allowing us to feel the heat, cold, pleasure, touch, pressure, pain, and even an itch.
