Maintaining Healthy Skin
Healthy skin is a sure sign of a well-cared-for body. As the largest organ of the body, your skin performs several vital functions, securing your internal organs and regulating your body’s systems. Acting as a protective barrier against the elements in the environment, healthy skin also retains moisture, regulates your body temperature and provides us with a sense of touch. If properly treated and maintained, your skin will remain in relatively good condition throughout your life.
Skin is basically composed of three layers: the epidermis, dermis, and subcutis. The epidermis is the outermost layer and is mainly composed of cells. This is the “skin” we actually see with the naked eye. We can ensure the health of the epidermis by regulating the sloughing of dead cells through proper cleansing and moisturizing methods.
The dermis is the middle layer of skin. Fibers, which determine the elasticity, firmness and strength of our skin, lie here as well as living cells and blood vessels.
The subcutis acts as a cushion for the top layers of skin. It is composed of fat cells and sweat glands, which aid in the regulation of body temperature.
