ARTISTRY

Dive into a wealth of knowledge about skin and find out interesting facts. By Michelle D'Allaird

It’s so surprising to me to find that the largest organ of the human body is the least cared for: the skin! As a population that strives for health, beauty and youth, we exercise, eat right, take daily vitamins ... but go to bed with our without removing our makeup or wash our face with plain soap!

The skin has two primary layers: the dermis and the epidermis. Each is divided into individual layers. The dermis is the deepest level and has two layers that house critical connective tissues responsible for the firmness and flexibility of the skin, collagen and elastin, and blood vessels to feed and nourish the 1.5 to 2.0 meters of skin covering the average human body.
The epidermis has five distinct layers of skin that work interactively, as well as independently. These layers create the visual appearance, health and condition of the skin that we see. Within these layers are protective skin cells (langerhan cells), cells that produce colour (melanocytes) and layers of keratin-based skin cells (keratinocytes) that protect and form the epidermis.
I could write pages just on these layers, but have limited space, so I’ll have to stick to the basics!

Each layer of skin is the result of the workings of the layers beneath them AND the care of the layers above. It’s here that ARTISTRY Skincare products and the necessity of a daily routine become important. Basic skincare is a necessity for the health and maintenance of the skin. A regular regimen of cleansing, toning, moisturising and protecting is the foundation of youthful-looking skin. Regular care and the use of quality skincare products has been proven to be responsible for 80% of the skin’s condition.
You only have one skin. Care for it, start now ... and never stop.
