Let Me Introduce You to Your Skin

Let Me Introduce You to Your Skin

To better understand acne and the effect it has on our skin we might find it beneficial to be introduced to our skin. You might be wondering why you need to be introduced to your skin since you see it through the day, throughout your life. Skin its an incredible part of the body with a surprising number of parts and layers. With a proper introduction we can understand what’s going on and feel more comfortable with the changes we see on the skin and feel more equipped to deal with it.

What does your skin do?

It has a number of important tasks it performs. First it protects the body from infection while serving as an amazing waterproof material between your body and the world around you and protects you from the strong and harmful sun. It acts as a cushion and shock absorber easing the pressure of movement from your organs and bones. It insulates your body and keeps your body at a steady temperature while also providing a reserve for your body’s energy. It proves constantly its ability to inform you of dangerous and beneficial elements through sensations of pain, discomfort and comfort.

With all these functions the skin would need a great deal of thing tucked into the skin we see. The skin has follicles with hair glands and muscles. The skin has sensory nerves to allow the skin to feel as well as pressure sensors. The blood vessels pump blood through the skin keeping it healthy while keeping circulation going throughout. The skin has lymp and sweat glands cleansing the skin from dirt particles that may infect the skin. The tiny microscopic pigment cells protect your immunity and they reproduce keeping your skin renewed.

The skins levels

The skin has three layers the epidermis, the layer we are most conscious of then the dermis and then the deepest level is a fatty layer call the subcutaneous level. Within the epidermis is a further three layers. The first level, the outer most layers is made up of dead cells and day in day out they fall through movement and interaction. When we look at our skin we are actually looking at dead cells. We lose about 30,000 cells a minute on an average day. You will be hearing a lot about these dead cells as we discover more about acne since they play quite a big role in acne in general.

The middle layer and bottom layer are the layers that see the new cells move from their initial production in the lowest layer through to the middle layer as they reach the top level they begin to expire and layer on the top layer. The bottom layer forms a connecting layer between the dermis and the epidermis.

Returning back to the dermis the layer under the epidermis we enter into the boiler room of your skin where all the elements discussed exist. The blood vessels sweat glands and the hair follicles with it supporting elements of the glands and muscles work with the epidermis to provide the functions for the skin. The epidermis is really a unhelpful level without its dermis receiving its oxygen and blood supply from the dermis level.

An important part of understanding our skin in the creation of acne is the hair follicles. They are hair containing canals a tube shaped circle surrounding the skin under the skin. These are located in both the epidermis and dermis and it is this exact part in the skin that acne begins its journey. It is the blockage of these canals that causes acne. A whole range of skin issues are caused because of hair follicles.

We hope your introduction helps you deal with and accept your skin and its wonderful and not so wonderful parts. If you need further help to understand about your skin and any skin related issues feel free to get in touch with a certified dermatologist
