Effect of harsh chemicals on skin

Skin is the natural cover provided by the nature. It acts as  a barrier , protecting the body from the all types of infections present in the external environment. It also shields us from the extreme changes in the weather conditions. Thus, it is very essential to take care of our skin in the right way.

Another important function of skin is to reflect one’s personality. A smooth, flawless and glowing skin shows how much the person loves one and he or she will take efforts to put in the best efforts for things he or she loves. On the other hand, skin full of blemishes and pimples depicts how lazy and irresponsible the person is towards himself or herself. Earlier restricted to glamour industry, in today’s world, all professions require a good personality to make valuable impression and grow up the ladder of success.
