hair structure

The skin is the largest organ of our body, not only acting as a reflection of our internal health but as a barrier protecting us from external threats.  Skin is made up of layers, each of which performs important functions in protecting our body.  The layers of the skin consist of the epidermis, dermis and, hypodermis - all serving different functions and working together for a common purpose.

The epidermis consists of the outermost layers of the skin, including the stratum basale, stratum spinosum, stratum granulosum, stratum lucidum, and stratum corneum.  There are many layers to the epidermis and this is where you will find keratinocytes and melanocytes.  The keratinocytes are important because they are responsible for protecting our body’s water barrier and calcium absorption whereas the melanocytes are responsible for the pigment of our skin.  The dermis is the part of the skin where you will find the hair follicles and sweat glands.  It is made up of the papillary layer consisting of connective tissue and the reticular layer consisting of more dense connective tissue and collagen fibers.  The hypodermis is the deepest level of the skin and is also referred to as subcutaneous fascia.  In the hypodermis, you will find hair roots and blood vessels.

Your diet can significantly affect the health and aging of your skin.  A healthy diet includes lean proteins, healthy fats, fruits and, vegetables of many colors. The foods we eat get digested and broken down into vitamins and minerals that our body uses to build healthy skin. If you crash diet or eat highly processed foods your skin won't be as supple as it could be.

Daily Skincare Tips:

Daily Cleansing

It is important to maintain a daily cleansing ritual to remove particles of dirt, oil, sebum, and other environmental pollutants from the pores.  Having an effective daily cleansing ritual can prevent breakouts, acne scarring and premature aging.


Keeping your skin moisturized both day and night is vital for every skin type. Adequate hydration helps repair your skin barrier and strengthen it. It’s best to put on your moisturizer while your skin is still damp to lock in the moisture.


Sun and its UV rays have the most significant impact on how our skin ages. Approx. 80% of our aging is caused by the rays of the sun. UVA rays, also called ''aging rays'' penetrate deeper into the skin. They weaken the skin's collagen and elastin fibers, causing wrinkling and sagging in the tissues. UVB rays cause the burning of the skin. Wearing sunscreen daily is one of the easiest ways to protect your skin from visible damage later. Sunscreen is your skin's best friend. 


Our bodies are constantly loosing water through sweat, urine and even breathing. To prevent dehydration you should drink on average at least 2 liters of fluids daily. During high heat or exercise it should be even more. Skip sugar or energy beverages and choose healthy options like water or herbal tea. 


Maintaining a healthy diet has so many benefits to our body but is probably the most challenging regimen for people to follow.  Choosing to eat a healthy variety of fruit and vegetables can help reduce your risk of suffering from chronic diseases.
