Really the basis of beauty, is a healthy skin and healthy skin does not exist without a careful and regular cleaning day I would advise mostly at night and morning, and the epidermis is constantly renewed, losing in the process dead cells their replacement by new ones daily cleaning help accelerate this process is very important.
Healthy skin normally has up to 90 percent water and thanks to that stays cool, the function of nourishing the skin, is as important as moisturizing. Several types of skin, qui figure out which of them belong

STRUCTURE OF THE SKIN

The skin, considered for centuries as a simple physiological mantle, is actually one of the most complex and important organs of the body. From the histological point of view the skin comprises three layers, epidermis, dermis, hypodermis.

EPIDERMIS

It is the most superficial and is formed by a series of cells arranged in layers or strata. The deepest layer is called the basal or germinative layer, consists of a row of living cells, cylindrical, vertically disposed, and are in a continual process of reproduction. The new cells undergo major changes in physical-chemical, so when they have lost wing area vital characteristics, becoming dead cells filled with keratin, thus, the outermost layer of skin called stratum corneum performs a very important barrier function, protecting underlying tissues from external aggressions.

DERMIS

The dermis is held by a specialized tissue composed of a series of fibers that form a tight mesh that gives the skin characteristics of turgor and elasticity. The fibers are:

Collagen fibers. The most important protein of the skin, as it ensures the structure and strength of the fabric.

Elastin fibers. Are those that ensure the resilience of the whole.

Reticulin fibers. Binding protein that ensures the cohesion of the fibers together and the epidermis. This plot is bathed in a fibrous substance called substance based, gelatinous consistency is important because of water retention. The role of the dermis is of vital importance from the aesthetic point of view.

Hypodermis

It is a layer in which specialized cells called lipositos produce and store fat. This fat layer, also known by the name of adipose tissue is an insulator of heat and cold, a pad against injuries and a wine nutritional reserves.

WHY DOES STRESS DAMAGE OUR SKIN?

Researchers at the University of California and the Mount Sinai School of Medicine, chronic stress increases the amount of cortisol, which damages the skin's ability to retain water and decrease the brightness. Cortisol also raises blood sugar levels, which through a process called glycation damages the collagen and elastin, the protein fibers that keep skin soft and hydrated.

DRY SKIN



It is characterized mainly by the moisture deficit which, apart from being unsightly, can affect hair health producing rough, scaly skin, causing premature wrinkles, irritation and exfoliation. It is caused by a malfunction of the sebaceous glands do not produce enough fluid to lubricate the skin and protect against loss of water, sometimes it is related to a deficiency of vitamins and minerals, many times the dry skin is the result some diseases, particularly acne, eczema, psoriasis and even hypothyroidism. Science has found that the stress hormone, cortisol, literally, into the skin, causing dryness and other signs of aging.

Testosterone is the male hormone responsible for triggering the sebaceous hypersecretion appearance of acne. For this reason, the condition can be particularly virulent in humans and persist throughout life, this hormone is particularly aggressive at skin level, with the collaboration of an enzyme in the sebaceous gland, which in the case of acne skin, has greater activity. The causes are related to people with emotional problems, especially extroverts, shy and self-conscious.
