About your skin
Get to know it
Your skin has a very important job. It is responsible for protecting your body and it’s made to be tough and stretchy. Learning how it operates makes it better for you to take care of it!
There are three layers to your skin:
- Epidermis >> The top layer of the skin and the part you can see
- Dermis >> This is the second layer of skin and is much thicker
- Subcutaneous fat >. This is the bottom layer.
Epirdemis is in charge of :
- New skin cells: The skin cells travel up to the top layer and flake off, about a month after they form. The why exfoliating frequently hels to keep your skin soft.
- Giving skin color: It produces melanin, which is what gives your skin its gorgeous radiant color
- Protecting your body: The epidermis has special cells that are part of your immune system and help you stay healthy.
Dermis has the job to:
- Sweat it out: There are little pockets called sweat glands in the dermis. They make sweat, which goes through little tubes and comes out of holes called pores. Sweating helps to keep your body cool and helps you get rid of bad stuff your body doesn’t need. Go make that sauna appointment NOW!
- Helping you feel things: Nerve endings in the dermis help you feel things. They send signals to your brain, so you know how something feels if it hurts (meaning you should stop touching it), is itchy or feels nice when you touch it.
- Growing hair: The root of each tiny little hair on your skin is in the dermis. Each root attaches to a tiny little muscle that tightens and gives you goose bumps when you are cold or are scared.
- Making oil: ou can also fin another type of little pocket, or gland here which makes oil for your skin. This oil keeps your skin soft and smooth. When too much oil is being produced you get break outs and pimples.
- Bringing blood to your skin: Blood feeds your skin and takes away bad stuff through little tubes called blood vessels.
Don’t judge its name, subcutaneous fat plays an important role in your body.
- Attaching the dermis to your muscles and bones: It has a special connecting tissue that attaches the dermis to your muscles and bones.
- Helping the blood vessels and nerve cells: Blood vessels and nerve cells that start in the dermis get bigger and go to the rest of your body from here.
- Controlling your body temperature: It helps keep your body from getting too warm or too cold.
- Storing your fat: This fat pads your muscles and bones and protects them from bumps and falls.
