Do you know your skin?
The skin, this mysterious organ that protects our organs, must be preserved in order to maintain our youth and brightness as long as possible.
The skin is responsible for regulating and protecting the body against external aggressions. It is composed of several layers of cellular tissue, with complementary functions.
The epidermis, the upper layer of our skin.
The upper layer of the skin is covered with a hydrolipidic film which retains its suppleness. It contains natural moisturizing factors, including lactic acid and urea: if they decline, in case of exposure to the cold for example, the skin dehydrates until it becomes rough and dry. Our experts all agree, wrinkles appear more easily on dehydrated skin, therefore we can’t express enough the importance of a good hydration of the epidermis.
The dermis contains elasticity.
Thick, elastic and firm, the central layer of the skin consists of collagen and elastin, encrusted in a substance capable of retaining water and containing hyaluronic acid. With age, lifestyle choices, and exposure to the sun, the amount of collagen and elastic is reduced. As the production of hyaluronic acid also drops over the years, one sees then appear wrinkles and fine lines.
The hypodermis, the reserve of energy.
This last layer, the deepest, serves as insulator and padding. It is composed mainly of collagen fibers and fat cells, which are important nutrient storage units and thus a formidable reserve of energy for the body. Dr. Bernard Sillam tells us there are ways to replace the loss of hyaluronic acid. “Use a moisturizer with hyaluronic acid stimulates the production of collagen to fight against sagging skin.
To give a skin rejuvenation, go for hyaluronic acid treatments such as MESO-GLOW.
