ONLY IF YOU KNOW YOUR SKIN AND TOO YOU CAN UNDERSTAND YOU KNOW WHAT SHE NEEDS.
 
Your skin is a complex organ with individual needs. In order to understand these needs, it is important to understand how your skin is actually structured and what functions it fulfills. This is the only way to find the ideal care and wissen was is good for your skin.
WHAT IS THE SKIN AND HOW DOES IT WORK?
 
As our largest organ, our skin has one function above all - to protect us! It obviously protects us from external influences, but it also protects our body from invisible UV radiation. She also feels for you and warns you if it's too cold or too warm.
 
As you can see from these examples can, has the skin has many functions, all of which are very important and significant. And this is exactly why it is so important that you understand how your skin is built up, what it lacks and how you take good care of it.
HOW IS THE SKIN STRUCTURED?
 
Everybody has ever of them heard, but very few people know them - the layers of skin. One can have the skin in three main layers and subdivide many sub-strata and each has its important role in our largest organ. To the three Layers of skin include the epidermis (upper skin), the dermis (leather skin) and the subcutis (subcutaneous tissue). All shifts are closely related and work together to to protect yourself from external influences.
 
For a better understanding, we show you the individual layers in a simplified form in a skin cross-section:

1. EPIDERMIS

Epidermis: This is the top layer and the most visible part of our skin. It forms a protective, waterproof shell that takes care of the renewal of your skin, protects you from UV rays and plays an important role in your immune system. The epidermis consists of a horny layer made up of special cells that keratinize on the surface of the skin and are then rejected, pigments and proteins. It is constantly renewing itself.

 

2. DERMIS

Dermis: It lies as an intermediate layer under the epidermis (upper skin) and above the subcutis (lower skin) and consists of tight connective tissue. It ensures the mobility and stability of your skin through the proteins collagen and elastin. Blood vessels, sebum glands, hair follicles and nerves make up their components. The job of the dermis is to anchor the epidermis. It also supplies the epidermis with nutrients (the epidermis itself has no vessels).

 

3. SUBCUTIS

Subcutaneous tissue, also subcutaneous fatty tissue: This layer looks different for each person depending on the body fat percentage. It is a loose layer of connective tissue that serves as an energy store, insulates against the cold and protects against mechanical influences such as pressure or friction.

4. SEEDLES AND SEEDLES

Sebum: The sebum in our skin is largely responsible for our skin type. Most of us are prone to either overproduction (seborrhea) or underproduction (sebostasis), which then leads to oily or dry skin. Especially in old age, the efficiency of the sebum glands decreases, which often leads to dry skin. Sebum consists of squalane, triclycerides, waxes and fatty acids and prevents our skin from drying out and keeps germs off.

5. SWEAT GLANDS AND SWEAT

Our body is covered with around 2 million sweat glands, which mainly help us to regulate body temperature. Sweat consists of 99% water and 1% a mix of ions, lactic, amino and fatty acids, ammonia, urea and a few other substances.

 

6. HYDROLIPID FILM AND ACID PROTECTIVE COAT

In many Products that with special pH values advertise, reads one of it - the protective acid mantle. It includes many tasks such as protecting the skin from drying out and it makes your skin more resistant to chemicals. The main composition of the film consists of sweat, water given off by the Layers of skin as well Sebum, scent secretions, fats from the epidermis and breakdown products from the Cornification process. Environment, Age, skin care and lifestyle play a key role in the composition of the hydrolipid film and thus also in the health of your skin.
