Learn To Love Your Natural Skin - by Editor

Your skin mirrors your health. Be it fair or tanned, learn to love your natural skin and be on your way to a flawless complexion.

All parts of our body including our skin are precious gifts of nature. The skin that we live in is the largest organ of the human body. We all admire, revere and desire beautiful, flawless skin. Having bad skin can be a physical as well as an emotional threat. But the good news is that nature has provided us with many things to combat skin problems and heal them.
Many people have problems with their skin colour. The dusky ones want to be fair; the fair ones want to look tanned. Finally, no one loves what they have. The saying rightly goes, 'the grass is always greener on the other side'.
The desire for a different skin tone rather than healthy skin usually ends in making huge investments in having a whiter or tanned skin. But such skin obtained with cosmetics and bleaching is temporary. Bleaching face using chemical products not only harms skin but also makes it rough. Tanners can be bad for skin. Similarly getting a plastic surgery done for your skin requires lots of money. Remember your skin belongs to you whether dark or fair. It makes you different from the rest. So put your money to good use and read on so that you learn to love your natural skin.

Beautiful skin is healthy skin

Cosmetics cannot change your skin they can only hide flaws and highlight areas that you want. But beautiful skin is skin without infections, scars and other disorders. All you have to do to love your skin is keep it healthy. Look after it and love it, be it any tone.
