The skin is the largest organ of the body. It is also the organ we take the most for granted. Exposure to sun, wind, environmental toxins, smoking, a poor diet, and personal stress all contribute to aging skin.
Our skin is composed of many layers. The epidermis is the top layer of skin and is most affected by exposure to the elements. The epidermis is supported by the dermis, the layer of skin you cannot see but that plays a vital role in how the epidermis looks.
The dermis contains cells such as fibroblasts, hair follicles, and sebaceous cells. Fibroblasts manufacture collagen and elastin. These two proteins give skin a plump and smooth appearance.
As we age, fibroblasts begin to slow down their production of collagen and elastin. This results in crepe-y, sagging, and wrinkled skin. Beauty Deepc can help!
