The Skin in a nutshell

The Skin in a very small Nutshell.

*Its The Largest Organ Of the Body

*Epidermis - This is the layer that we can see and is the first defence of the body and is constantly renewing itself.

*The cell renewal stage initially begins at every 27 days but progressively takes longer as we age.

*Dermis- Lays directly under the epidermis and holds the blood vessels, nerves and collagen & elastin.

*Collagen - is what gives the skin its plumpness

*Elastin- is what gives the skin its ability to ping back in place

*Subcutaneous - This is the comfort layer that between the skin and the muscles and is what protects the muscles from damage and every day trauma
