What do you know about skin?

The skin is the largest organ in our body and one of the most important to protect our body from the environment that surrounds us. So we must take care of it and pamper it so that it is always healthy and can properly perform its main functions.

Adapted to each area

The skin has different thicknesses depending on the area of the body it occupies. The heels can be up to half a centimeter thick while the eyelids are one of the most sensitive areas, with a thickness of only half a millimeter.

Skin Functions

Among other functions, the skin acts as the body's barrier, protecting the entry of any substance or organism from the outside (immune defense) as well as preventing the loss or exit of substances from inside our body such as water. It also helps us maintain body temperature and is the place where the body produces vitamin D, which plays an indispensable role in organ maintenance and the body's absorption of calcium.

Skin change

Even if you don't realize it, your skin is constantly renewing and changes completely every 3-4 weeks. The epidermis, the most superficial layer of the skin and the most dynamic, is composed of cells arranged in sheets that, as they mature and lose their nucleus, detach leaving room for the next ones that arrive through the innermost layers of the skin.


That is why we must adapt our skincare routines to the best products according to each area of the body, keeping it clean, hydrated and with specific treatments for its renewal and support of its functions.
