The skin is the body's largest organ comprising approximately 15% total body weight.It is thinnest on the eyelids (0.05mm) and thickest on the soles of the feet (5mm).The skin is a multi-faceted complex organ, one square inch consisting of: 65 hairs; 78 yards of nerves; 100 sebaceous glands; 650 sweat glands; 9,500 cells; 19 yards of blood vessels; 1,300 nerve endings; 20,000 sensory cells and 250 sensory apparatuses.External factors which affect the health of the skin include diet, age (eg menopause), medication, environmental factors, smoking, UV exposure, stress, lifestyle, genetics and the care you give it.
The skin is composed of three primary layers, the epidermis (the outer layer), the dermis and the subcutaneous tissue or fat layer.The skin takes approximately 28 days to renew itself, a process called desquamation. As one ages, this process can take up to 45 days.
The acid mantle is our body's first defence mechanism against bacteria and functions as our skin's protector (bacteria dislike the slight acid conditions). The acid mantle develops at puberty - children do not have an acid mantle and this why they're more susceptible to diseases, viruses and fungal infections.
Sweat and sebum combine on the skin's surface, creating an acidic film, known as the 'acid mantle'.Acidity and alkalinity are measured by a number called the pH.An acidic solution has a pH of 0-7, i.e. lemon juice, vinegar.A neutral solution has a pH of 7, i.e. blood.An alkaline solution has a pH of 7 - 14, i.e. soap, depilatories.A perfect pH of 5.5 discourages the growth of bacteria and fungi. Having the right pH balance in your skin helps keep a clear, healthy complexion.
