In brief: Happy Skin

Skin is the major protection of our delicate internal tissues from a harsh environment, it is susceptible to injury itself.
Sun, shaving and many chemicals are very irritating as well as constant exposure to moisture reduces protective skin oils and sets the skin up for injury. The trick is to apply good protective skin cream frequently and minimize ongoing damage. Clean it using gentle means.
