An average adult has 8 pounds of skin all over the body, making it the largest organ of the body. It is useful in many ways, but most importantly it acts as a shield to protect body’s internal parts from infections, and other damages from outside.
Though skin is meant to have strong defense mechanism, yet it can fail sometimes. The pathogens present in the environment make it susceptible every minute. Once these pathogens succeed in entering your body they become very harmful. So, what is your best defense against them? It is prevention that improves your chances of keeping your skin’s fighting ability intact.
Prevention Of Skin Diseases
Disease causing microorganisms are everywhere. They just need right factors to thrive. Prevention is always better than cure. By using good preventive methods chances of getting skin diseases can be significantly reduced. All this starts by maintaining good personal hygiene.
And, of-course preventing skin diseases is easier than treating them, because:

- Quality of your life gets improved by taking care of your health.
- Prevention is less expensive than treatments.
- Right prevention can even help eliminate risk factors for many death causing skin diseases.
