Is Our Skin Water Tight?

The answer is... (drum roll)...
Heck no! Human skin is a powerful absorption organ that is as hungry and as thirsty as can be. Every drop of water, every swipe of face creme, every lick of lipstick... Our skin takes it in. Our skin absorbs 60% of substances applied to its surface. Unfortunately, along with water, vitamins, minerals and oxygen, skin soaks up potentially carcinogenic toxins as well. That may increase our chances of cancer, as if our environmental toxins were not enough.Be cautious and choose your shampoos, facial cleanser, moisturizes and makeup wisely.
