THE STRUCTURE OF THE SKIN
Seen from the outside, your skin is like a fabric that envelops your body. However, unlike a sweater, the skin has layers that we only see in the cross-section of the skin:
the epidermis – Epidermis: It covers the body and protects it from external influences. These include UV rays and bacteria. The body's own protective acid mantle lies on the epidermis, which protects your skin from drying out and is stabilized by the sebum and sweat glands.
The dermis – Dermis: Here you will find fine blood vessels, sebaceous glands, sweat glands, hair follicles and nerve tissue. The dermis contains the connective tissue made up of collagen and elastin, giving the skin stability and elasticity.
the hypodermis – Hypodermis, or subcutis: The subcutaneous tissue consists to a large extent of fatty tissue and is therefore an important energy store, the thickness of which varies from person to person. The hypodermis protects your body from cold and mechanical influences such as pressure or friction.
Some of the smaller, but still important, components of the skin include:
sebaceous glands: They produce sebum, also known as sebum. This consists of fatty acids, waxes,squalanes and triglycerides. The sebum ensures that your skin does not dry out and is protected against germs. When there is an overproduction of sebum (soborrhea), people tend to have oily skin, and when there is an underfunction (sebastasis), they tend to have dry skin.
sweat glands: Your body has a great many of these around 2 million sweat glands are in your skin. Sweat regulates your body temperature and even if it can sometimes smell unpleasant: it consists almost entirely of water. Only 1 percent goes to a mixture that consists of, among other things, ammonia and urea as well as milk, amino and fatty acids.
The combination of the sebum and sweat glands has an important function: they regulate the protective layer that surrounds your skin. This ultra-thin film on the skin has it all: It prevents moisture from evaporating from the skin and keeps harmful bacteria and other particles away from your skin.
WHAT FUNCTION DOES THE SKIN DO?
Skin can do more than just look beautiful: it encases your body and protects it from the outside world. Without skin, your organs and bones would be exposed and therefore defenseless against danger.
But your skin is also a sensory organ with countless nerves. It lets you know what's happening around you and how warm or cold it is.
As a storage organ, your skin binds moisture and important fats. This means that it can take care of your body, but above all it can also protect it: from the cold, from impact and other physical influences
But we mustn't forget that skin is sexy. It not only helps visually when looking for a partner, but also makes you irresistible through the sweat glands. Let them out, the pheromones!
WHAT INFLUENCES DETERMINE YOUR SKIN HEALTH?
Yes, skin care is an important topic and cosmetics help you a lot here to create a good balance. A good skin cream, a mild facial cleanser or a well-formulated anti-aging cream are therefore indispensable factors, but they are not the only ones..
There are internal and external factors that affect the texture and health of your skin. You can control and determine most of them yourself.
The most important factors influencing your skin health include:
Genes, age, hormones, UV radiation, temperature, humidity, environmental toxins, diet, drug use, sleep and exercise.
