Our SKIN is our largest organ. It protects us from bacteria and viruses, regulates body temperature & helps you feel the world around you. OUR SKIN has 3 layers: The Epidermis which is the outer portion consisting of 25- 30 layers of DEAD cells. The middle layer, the Dermis is where our hair follicles, sweat glands, nerves & blood vessels are found. As a result, of the nerves being in the Dermal layer, this is where the sensation of touch is experienced. The innermost layer is the hypodermis which attaches our SKIN to our muscles and bones.
Since our SKIN is a filter to assist with getting rid of toxins , it is pertinenent to treat it with the utmost care.
A mild, yet effective cleanser with limited alchohols is essential. Alcohol is a drying agent.An exfoliator can slough off the any dead material that can be left behind following cleansing. Microdermabrasion is a modality that can further assist with removing dead cells that clog the SKIN.Finally, a moisturizer can lock in essential hydration throughout your day.
