While taking a cursory peek at the skin may not reveal that much is happening, in reality this large structure (about 20 square feet on average, the size of 2 refrigerators) IS a dynamic living organ that processes an metabolizes biochemicals, makes vitamins and hormones which is exquisitely responsive to its environment.
And the skin breaths too; it absorbs atmospheric oxygen and emits carbon dioxide just like the lungs. That's why one of the unhealthiest things we can do to the body's largest organ, is slather on topical products that cover it up ("pccluding" it) with waxes and oils and other cosmetic ingredients. Nonetheless there are things we can do to improve the health of the skin using topical formulations as long as they are light, penetrating and non-occlusive, pplying it in small amounts and featuring nutrients, particularly fatty vitamins and ionic minerals.
Caring for your skin can be much more than cosmetic. We believe that caring for the skin is about the health of the skin. Truth Treatments pharmacist-formulated products work with the biochemistry of the skin, at the cellular level.
