Skin is the largest organ of the body. It is made up of the outer epidermis & inner dermis. The epidermis has a number of layers of cells called keratinocytes & pigment cells called melanocytes. The dermis contains blood vessels, sebaceous or oil glands, sweat glands, nerves; all of which are bound together by elastin & collagen fibres. The skin protects the underlying structures from outer environmental pollutants by forming a barrier layer. It helps us perceive stimuli such as touch, heat, cold, pain. It regulates temperature & also helps in the metabolism of vitamin D.

Factors like pollution, sun rays, stress, irregular food habits, inadequate sleep etc contribute to skin damage & premature aging of skin. Thus, it is necessary to take basic minimal care of one’s skin.

Basic skin care does not involve use of expensive cosmetics & toiletries. One has to follow a very simple regime for skin care
Diet: A well-balanced, regular diet along with adequate amount of water is all that you need. One must avoid the so-called junk food, too much of starvation in the form of dieting & eating at odd irregular hours.

Exercise: About 30 minutes of aerobics, walking, jogging or cycling at least five times a week is essential for a healthy skin.

Sun Protection: UVA & UVB rays could be harsh on the skin & cause photo damage in the form of increased pigmentation, freckles, premature aging & even skin cancers. Those with normal to dry skin can use a sunscreen with an SPF of 15 at least 20 minutes before sun exposure. People with oily skin should use an umbrella or a wide brimmed hat for sun protection.

Local skin care: The surface of the skin contains oil, dead cells, sweat, grime, dirt, grease & pollutants. If this is not removed, the skin looks dull & flaky. Cleansing is an important part of skin care & can be done with simple soaps or cleansers. The skin should be washed at least twice a day with soap & warm water. Deodorant soaps with antiseptic agents are good for oily skin. Super fatted soaps or glycerin-based soaps are good for dry & normal skin. For the skin to look healthy & glowing, its uppermost layer called stratum corneum should contain more than 10% of the total water content of the body. Thus, comes the role of a moisturizer. People with dry to normal skin should use a moisturizer twice a day after cleansing. Those with oily skin should be careful & use an oil free moisturizer only once a day.

It is very important to protect youself from sun exposure. Use a sunscreen with an SPF of atleast 15 and try to avoid going outside in the sun between 10 am and 4pm.

ditto on the sun protection. however, it's important not to forget that you need a certain amount of exposure to the sun in order to be able to produce vitamin d.

I totally agree with you that skin is the most important organ of our body and we should take care of it by using only natural skin care products like sunscreens, lotion, moisturisers etc. Because they not only enhance our beauty without affecting our body also provide us a healthy and glowing skin for longer runs.

Not everyone is blessed with flawless low maintenance skin; most of us have to work at it. Cleaning your skin is the fundamental step of the skin care regime we follow. Washing the face is a skin care ritual which I assume everyone does the same way.
I myself have an extremely dry skin, and I most definitely wouldn’t want to pick a face wash for oily skin which leaves my face like the Sahara desert.
