Integumentary System

INTEGUMENTARY SYSTEM

The integumentary system consists of the hair, skin, nails, and exocrine glands. Your skin protects you from harmful elements in the environment, and it can be adversely affected by toxins, artificial fragrances, pollution, and other irritants. When you treat your skin, hair, and nails right, they appear healthier, smoother, and more beautiful. To keep yourself clean and healthy, you can use essential oils such as Melaleuca, and cleanse it regularly with doTERRA On Guard® Foaming Hand Soap and natural skin and hair care products from doTERRA.

INTEGUMENTARY TIPS


• Care for facial skin daily with Essential Skin Care, Verage® or HD Clear®.
• Apply HD Clear or Melaleuca to reduce appearance of skin imperfections.
• Apply Immortelle, Rose Touch, Geranium, Frankincense, or other preferred oil to minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
• To encourage the appearance of full, healthy hair, use Cedarwood, Rosemary, Eucalyptus, Thyme, Melaleuca, or Ylang Ylang. These essential oils may be added to hair conditioner.

The skin is the biggest organ of the body, and the main part of the integumentary system. This body system provides a protective barrier to the outside world, cushions the internal organs, gives you your sense of touch, and regulates body temperature. 

The skin serves as a waterproof barrier that prevents all types of unwanted threats from entering your body. The skin also protects tissues and organs from strong sunlight and injury from substances in the environment. The skin contains blood vessels, hair follicles, lymph vessels, and sweat glands. 

An intricate system of nerves link the skin to the brain, providing information about the environment. The skin can sense temperature changes, pain, pressure, or touch. When sensory messages are received by these nerves, they are sent to the brain.

Many factors contribute to the health of the skin, hair, and nails, including a balanced diet, regular exercise, hormonal balance, and overall health. In general, when the body is healthy internally, this shows externally by having beautiful hair, smooth nails, and glowing skin. Daily supplementation with doTERRA Lifelong Vitality Pack® can support the integumentary system and promote healthy hair, skin, and nails.

It is important to cleanse and moisturize regularly with products suited to your needs. On Guard® Foaming Hand Wash is a gentle, healthy alternative to harsh soaps that may dry and irritate sensitive skin. When you don’t have water handy, reach for doTERRA On Guard® Sanitizing Mist, which purifies hands by eliminating bacteria and other germs. 

Essential oils can be beneficial in cleansing and beautifying hair, skin, and nails. To minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, apply Immortelle Anti-Aging Blend, Rose Touch, Geranium, Frankincense, or Anti-Aging Eye Cream. HD Clear® can be applied topically to promote a clear complexion and reduce breakouts. Correct-X® Essential Ointment helps keep skin clean while recovering from distress. 

Keep hair clean and healthy with the doTERRA Salon Essentials® Hair Care system. Each product is infused with essential oils specifically chosen for their nourishing and beautifying benefits on the hair and scalp. You can encourage the appearance of full, healthy hair with Eucalyptus, Thyme, Melaleuca, Cedarwood, Rosemary, or Ylang Ylang.
