Your Skin Protects What’s Within Your skin is a barrier that protects the body from dirt and other impurities. When that barrier gets compromised, it can lead to increased skin sensitivity, premature signs of aging, and pigmentation issues—and those issues can result in a stressful situation for your skin! Healthy Skin Filters Impurities Out Fortunately, healthy skin can be an efficient filter to prevent oxidants and contaminants from entering to cause damage to cells.
