It’s the first thing we see or touch, it covers us all from head to toe and shields us from the outside world – our SKIN.
So… with all that your skin does for you, what have you done for it lately?
The American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) implemented November as Healthy Skin Month in order to raise awareness about the importance of keeping skin fresh, hydrated and healthy all year round.
All month long, people are encouraged to learn about the functions of skin and how to keep it healthy and looking good.
Understanding how the skin functions starts with understanding the structure of the three layers of skin – the epidermis, dermis, and subcutaneous tissue.
The epidermis is the outer most layer of skin and contains five layers. The top layer of the epidermis, the stratum corneum, is made of dead, flat skin cells that shed about every two weeks.
The lower most layer is the subcutaneous tissue. The subcutaneous tissue is a layer of fat and connective tissue that houses larger blood vessels and nerves. This layer is important in the regulation of temperature of the skin itself and the body. The size of this layer varies throughout the body and from person to person.
Each of these layers plays an important role in the way our skin functions and looks. As a result, any breakdown in one of our skins layers causes various skin issues that we are all familiar with; be it acne, wrinkles and even good old aging.
