If you ask someone what he or she feels is REALLY important in life, then typically you get mostly answers like love, being happy and healthy. That the first two are often intertwined with each other is obvious, but health is often an outsider. By many authorities like (semi-) government and businesses we are often told what is good for us and often have we inherited some values about the matter in our upbringing. In addition to healthy eating, we often learn that good hygiene is important and there are various products being used, to emphasize hygiene. In particular our largest organ, the skin, has to endure a lot, when we see what kind of abuse it needs to undergo by products which provide an artificially layer of 'health' . Because we use a variety of cleaning and beauty products for our skin , we thus directly affect our health too. Namely, the reason is, that we are constantly disturbing the balance sheet of our skin, including eliminating the natural skin oils and replace them with artificial surrogates , who also suffocate the skin . As a result, we lose the natural protection against all kinds of fungi, viruses and bacteria, which the skin provides, when it is stripped by these products. The solution is simple and is already being used by a growing number of people , namely by simply stopping the use of these substances . I hear you thinking: not using soap, shampoo, conditioner, creams and ointments (if not on medication) anymore? Indeed not, because that will restore the balance of your skin and its effects will be visible already within a month. Only washing yourselves with water is sufficient, despite whatever is told … In addition, it is wise to let the skin breathe as much as it can and not to hide it immediately in layers of clothing every day. It is not for nothing that most people feel best in summer or that a day in a spa works so invigorating . It’s not that I think that everybody should turn into an active social nudist immediately, but the health of every human being benefits with a little daily home nudism.
