The Science Behind Skin Conditions


The skin is the largest organ of the body, and covers our internal organs so that they're not exposed to the dangers of the outside world.

Our skin can be cared for by keeping regular cleanliness habits and by using sunblock where necessary, but there are times when some things are out of our control that can cause acne, rashes, or even moles.

These things all happen for a reason, whether it's excess oils bring produced by our bodies, too much sun exposure, or an infection, skin conditions are common and, although not fun, can be treated.

In this video, you'll get to learn about the causes of certain skin conditions and what happens behind the scenes that you can't usually see with the naked eye.
