The Secret to a Beautiful Face
To have a youthful beautiful skin you should, eat healthy, exercise regularly, exfoliate 2-3 times a week, moisturize afterwards and most importantly of all you shall have an optimistic outlook of life. Diet comes in first, fruits and vegetables give your body naturally the vitamins and nutritions it needs to properly function.
Skin is the largest organ in our body. Protects us from sun rays, the cold, germs and toxic substances. Skin plays an important role in regulating our body's temperature it protects us from too much heat and cold. It allows us to feel the sensations of cold, warmth, pressure, itching and pain. Most importantly it protects us from dehydration.
The skin consists of three layers the outer layer (epidermis), the middle layer (dermis) and the deepest layer (subcutis). Skin varies in thickness. It depends on your age and sex. Younger people have thicker skin then older people, and men generally have thicker skin than women.
Epidermis: It is primarily made up of dead cells (keratinocytes) that are stuck together. New cells are made in the lower layer of the epidermis. They move to the surface within four weeks where they are harden and then shed. This constant renewal helps to replace cells that are lost when your face is scrubbed.
Our All Organic Face Exfoliator helps removing the dead cells on the surface of your skin thus enhancing the process of replacing old dead cells with new healthy cells.
We recommend never using harsh chemicals for this process. Keep it simple, exfoliate organically the science is there to support such claims.
The epidermis contains various types of cells with special functions.
Merkel Cells, are the nerve cells in the skin that allow us to sense pressure.
Lymphocytes and Langerhans cells play an important role in fighting germs. They trap the germs and transfer them to the nearest lymph node.
Melanocytes promote the storage of black pigment called melanin. More melanin is produced when your skin is exposed to sun light, that is why we get tanned during sunny days mostly in summer season. Melanin protects us from the sun's harmful UV rays.
Dermis: Is made of a dense composition of tough elastic collagen fibers. They make the skin stretchy as well as tough and robust. If the skin is stretched a lot the dermis tears off and we see that happening on pregnant women, the results are visible stretch marks.
The dermis also extends into the connective tissue that surrounds our muscles and bones which are connected with our skin.
The dermis contains a network of nerve fibers and capillaries. Oxygen and nutrients in the blood pass from the capillaries into cells. Capillaries also cool of the body when it gets too hot. The dermis is the skin layer that contains the most sensory cells and sweat glands.
Subcutis: Also known as hypodermis is primarily made off fat and connective tissue. At the extent of dermis and subcutis exist micro cavities that are made of water and fat. The fat also protects the bones and joints by absorbing any shocks. Most hormones are produced at the fat cells of the subcutis.
(EUREKA on the next blog we will talk about ACNE, new hypothesis just came in my mind, remember hormones - acne - subcutis- let's dig deeper into this, we might have the discovery of the century, How to avoid ACNE?!).
Back to this:
Vitamin D is made when skin is exposed to sunlight. The subcutis and dermis bost contain lymph vessels, blood vessels, sweat glands, nerves, scent glands, oil glands, and hair roots.
