Skin structure and skin function
Skin is basically made from three layers, from outside to inside, which than each layer is divided in other layers. The upper layer of the skin has the most important function, because it protects the body from microorganisms, air pollution, and UV radiation and loses of important skin ingredients, like water.
Besides skin plays an important role as a sense organ or better said it has a role of communicator between body and space. And this role can be effectively done only if the skin is healthy, not damaged and it renews by itself. In aging process if we expose the skin to sun, makes the skin less moisture, less sensitive and at the end less able to make its primary function, which is protecting our body and organs. Age makes that the skin is unable to heal and renew itself anymore, that’s why it needs a help as an appropriate treatment, which will give the skin back its vitality.
How the skin gets older?
No matter how the medicine is developed, aging process somehow still remains a mystery and difficult to explain. The process of aging of human skin starts between 20 and 30 of age and lasts till late age. Skin starts changing, because of inside (genetic, hormonal, disease) and outside (climatic, hygienic, food, pollution, therapeutic) factors. It starts losing firmness, elastic, power of living and also becoming drier, because of lipid and water lose. The upper layer is renewing slowly and become thinner and the connection between all three layers becomes weaker. Skin is losing the fats which bind three layers and pigmentation starts changing and is seen as age spots or age freckles.
The aging and age signs on the skin are difficult to avoid even if the cosmetics industry is trying to find out solutions, how to slow down aging. Humans are spending tones of money in cosmetics, because we give a big importance and spend a lot of time asking how to make us look younger. We have to know that skin is an important organ, that’s why we have to be careful what skin care products we buy. An inappropriate product can make a big damage to the skin. Besides we have to know that we get many genetic properties from our family and skin is the mirror of our life.
What can we do to prevent premature aging of the skin?
We cannot change the genetic, but we can avoid outside exposures that can damage our skin. For daily treatment we can use herbal soaps or lotions for cleaning or oil bath without artificial flavor and colorants. We should not use soaps too frequently and we have to shower thoroughly with water that does not have more than 35 degrees. In the place we are living or working we have to keep the appropriate moisture and drink enough water. In winter and summer we have to protect parts of our body, which are more exposed. Time to time it is good to make a good skin diet.
