Role of Lifestyle changes in the Treatment of Acne

What’s the body’s biggest organ?

You may be surprised to find out that it’s the skin, which you might not think of as an organ. It has a total area of 22 square feet in adults, weighing approximately 5 kilograms! 

So why do we require all this skin? Aside from keeping our bones, muscles and organs nicely tucked away, it plays a number of vital functions which we simply could not survive without. It protects us against UV light, dehydration and invasion by micro-organisms, allows us to have a sense of touch, is involved in regulating our core body temperature, acts as a water-barrier and is essential for the production of vitamin D.
