What Skin Are You In?

Your Skin is the Largest Organ in Your Body

Did you know skin is the largest body organ you have? Think about how large our skin is compared to everything else. With such a large surface area, your skin can be exposed to harsh things on a daily basis. According to the Harvard School of Public Health, the average person in the United States "is exposed to more than a hundred chemicals from cosmetics, soaps, and other personal care products before leaving the house in the morning."

Another fact put on the back burner is that our skin contains a large number of pores. When these pores heat up, whether by an internal or external temperature rise, they open up. Studies show that with every 5 degree increase in body temperature, skin absorption rates increase by as much 400 percent. Which of course means your pores are likely to absorb a greater amount of potentially harmful materials. Firefighters deal with this increase in temperature often.

Any outdoor athletes out there? Campers? Or gardeners? Not only might you suffer from your pores opening up in the heat, but you are constantly exposed to the sun. Many sunscreens contain harsh chemicals or just don't do the job.  Don't let all that time outside be ruined by coming home with a sunburn. Our Broad Spectrum Sunscreen contains natural ingredients that goes on easy, is safe for kids, and works.

As we've seen, many products used on your skin contain harmful chemicals. Considering how many skin products used on skin on a daily basis (shampoo, conditioner, moisturizing lotion, cleaners, etc), it is a good idea to check the label to see what ingredients are used in these products. Some ingredients could lead to potential health problems. Action Wipes are made in the USA with all natural ingredients that you know and love! Please take a look at our products, from Action Wipes, our new Naturally Clean Soap Bar or the Healing Honey Stick. All products leave you feeling refreshed, happy and healthy.

It is important to live a healthy life; listen to your skin and know what you are putting in and on it. So now we want to ask you, what skin are you in?
