The skin is the largest organ on the body, made up of several components. As it protects your body from any physical and external harm, it is the most exposed organ to outside risks.
For an average person, the skin weighs almost six pounds. Skin plays a very important role for the body: it protects us from diseases and germs.
In order for skin cells to survive and skin to do its job properly, it constantly renews itself. In reality, the outer layer of skin, epidermis, renews itself roughly every 27 days. Therefore, proper skincare is important to maintain its health and use.
How do skin cells regenerate?
Regeneration of skin cells and repair of damages to the skin begins with the most profound portion of the epidermis – the stratum basale. The first steps of recovery include expansion of the skin cells of the stratum basale itself.
Once done, all that’s required is for the skin cells of this layer to proceed to divide and relocate upward to fill whatever space remains.
Being exposed to sun, dirt and other factors, your skin cells go through strenuous times and require extra-care and ability to regenerate.
How to maintain A healthy skin?
To maintain a healthy skin, there are some factors to consider. Before putting any product on your skin, know your skin type and the ingredients of the product or what it does to your skin.
If you have dry skin, avoid products that mattify the skin. If you have oily skin, avoid greasy products as they will cause breakouts.
Climate is also a factor. When the weather is cold, your body will absorb fluid as much as it can, thus your skin will tend to dry out. For general skincare, here some tips on how to maintain healthy skin:
Cleansing. Use a gentle but effective cleanser. You can use either salicylic or glycolic acid cleanser. Then, scrub your skin to exfoliate any dirt and oil present that can cause blackheads or worse, breakouts.
An excellent skincare tool you can use for scrubbing is eDiva’s Ultrasonic Skin Scraping Spatula. It can get rid of the oil present in the deeper part of epidermis. This is ideally used for both deep cleansing and getting rid of dead skin.
Balanced Nutrition. Whatever you eat, healthy food or not, will definitely affect the health of your skin cells. If you want to achieve a fairer and healthier skin, then consume foods that contain vitamins and minerals good for your skin.
Moisturising. Everytime you wash or cleanse, you lose important oils on your skin. Moisturise using a product that suits your skin type. Apply it directly onto the skin using eDiva’s Ultrasonic Scraping Spatula to help the product penetrate deeper.
