THE STRUCTURE OF THE SKIN

From the outside, your skin is like a fabric that envelops your body. Unlike a sweater, however, 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 outside influences. These include UV rays and bacteria. On the epidermis lies the body's own protective acid mantle, 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, sebum glands, sweat glands, the hair follicles and also nerve tissue. The dermis contains the connective tissue, which consists of collagen and elastin, thereby giving the skin stability and elasticity. 

The subcutaneous tissue – Hypodermis, or subcutis: The subcutaneous tissue consists to a large extent of fatty tissue and is therefore an important energy store, which varies in thickness depending on the person. The hypodermis protects your body from cold and mechanical influences such as pressure or friction.

The smaller but still important parts of the skin include:

Sebum glands: They produce sebum, which is also called sebum. This consists of fatty acids, waxes,Squalanes and triclycerides. The sebum ensures that your skin does not dry out and is protected against germs. With an overproduction of sebum (soborrhea) people tend to have oily skin, with an underactive (sebastase) they tend to dry skin.

Sweat glands: Your body has very, very many of them, 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 go to a mixture that consists of ammonia and urea, among other things, as well as lactic, amino and fatty acids. 

The sebum and sweat glands have an important function in combination: 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 from inside 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 defenseless against danger. 

But your skin is also a sensory organ with innumerable nerves. In this way she tells you what is happening around you and how warm or cold it is.

As a storage organ, your skin binds moisture and important fats. As a result, it can also provide for your body, but above all protect it further: from the cold, from shocks and other physical influences

But what we mustn't forget: skin is sexy. Not only visually it helps with the partner: looking inside, but also through the sweat glands it makes you irresistible. Let them out, the pheromones!
