Healthy Skin

Everyone wants nice and healthy skin, but sometimes that doesn't happen. 

 

Did you know that skin is our largest organ of the body? It takes approximately 15% of our body weight. 

 

The epidermis is what we see - the outer layer of the skin that provides a barrier from the outside world.

 

Hair, nails, sebaceous glands (oil and sweat glands) and hair follicles all make up the integumentary system (skin). The skin has several different layers.

 

The Dermis - This layer lies underneath the epidermis. This layer is home to the sweat glands, sebaceous glands, hair follicles and nerve endings. Collagen and elastin (the fountains of youth) are found here to plump the skin and smooth out wrinkles. 

 

The Subcutaneous Fat - the third layer of the skin is made of fat and collagen fibres. Designed to protect the internal organs from trauma and insulation of the body. 

Skin changes as we age and this is natural. We cannot stop this, but we can look after it by taking better care of ourselves by providing the skin with all the nutrients. 

Giving your skin better nutrients will assist and help combat commonly known issues such as acne, rosacea, psoriasis, itching, eczema, pain and hives.
