Facial Skin

Your skin and facial skin is composed of 3 primary layers and multiple sublayers.

Skin Health Hub Skin Health Facial SkinThe outer layer is the Epidermis, the middle layer is the Dermis and the Hypo-Dermis is the bottom layer.

The Epidermis is a tough protective layer that contains the melanin. It is melanin that gives us our skin color and helps protect us against the damaging UVA & UVB sun rays. The second layer – the Dermis contains nerve endings, sweat and oil glands and hair follicles. The Hypo- Dermis skin layer is comprised of adipose (fat) tissue as well as blood vessels.

We shed two to three billion skin cells every day.

Human skin constantly regenerates itself over an approximate 28 day cycle. The process of regeneration is a continuous process that transpires our whole lives and begins in the dermal layer of the skin. In the first 2 weeks, cells migrate up towards the Epidermis where they reach the bottom layer of the Epidermis. The cells continue to move upward until it reaches the surface of the Epidermis. Here, cells spend two more weeks in the Epidermis flattening out and eventually die and shed. The process of cellular migration from the Dermis to the Epidermis repeats over and over again throughout our lifetime.

More skin facts

1. Our skin is the first line of defense against dehydration, infection, injury and extremes of temperature. The skin is an unbroken surface that protects things from entering the body or penetrating and going throughout our systems.

2. Our skin cells also detoxify harmful substances that try to enter our bodies much in the same way the liver does. They both filter and help our bodies remove the toxins so the toxins can be eliminated as waste.

3. Skin can also absorb and utilize nutrients that are topically applied to it.

The failure of old cells sloughing off naturally can result in dry/flaky skin and leads to a dull, more aged facial skin appearance. We can however, assist in ensuring dead skin cells do not build-up or cause congestion under the skin by carrying our manual exfoliation at regular intervals when we shower.

Using skincare products such as cleansers and scrubs which contain ingredients such as Alpha Hydroxy Acids Glycolic Acid and Mandelic Acid, Alpha/Beta/Hydroxy Acid Citric Acid, and Polyhydroxy Acid Gluconolactone offer gentle exfoliation to help slough off dead skin cells, encourage microcirculation, unclog the sebaceous gland ducts to prevent or reduce acne and blackheads from forming and create a healthier looking complexion.

Other methods to use to effectively exfoliate facial skin include an electrical facial brush machine or Diamond Peel Exfoliation which uses an advanced form of microdermabrasion.
