Hello Gorgeous!! Esther the Esthetician here. I hope you are as open minded as you think you are... Today I'm sharing the top facts you didn't know about your skin. Two of them will shock you my friend. Plus, I have a special gift for you at the bottom of the page. Let's jump right in.
1. It’s the largest organ in your body
Your skin spans 22 square feet, which makes it significantly larger than your second largest organ, the liver.
2. You start aging at 20
If you associate getting older with being in your 40s or 50s we’ve got bad news for you. Once you hit 25 your collagen levels can start to slowly deplete which might result in the appearance of sagging skin and the onset of fine lines. Antioxidants such as Vitamin C can help maintain young, healthy-looking skin.
3. Sleeping can possibly give you wrinkles
Sleep is good for you —it helps your body repair and rebuilds. Nevertheless, if you sleep on your side or on your stomach you could be applying pressure to your face which can contribute to the appearance of wrinkles.
4. You skin has three layers
We always talk about the skin as if it’s the only layer but it’s made up of three; the epidermis, dermis, and hypodermis.
5. Skin helps regulate temperature
Your skin can regulate temperature through its blood supply. When your blood vessels dilate skin allows for heat loss, when vessels constrict it helps retain heat.
6. Dark spots can develop on your skin
It’s extremely important to wear broad-spectrum SPF 15 or higher starting in your teens and 20s. In addition to experiencing post-acne brown spots... Sunspots can show up quickly on your skin and can increase with more sun exposure, making them even harder to get rid of.
7. We shed thousands of skin cells each minute
An incredible 30,000 to 40,000 per minute — wow!
8. Your skin has varying levels of thickness
Your eyelids have the thinnest skin while the palms and soles of your feet are the thickest.
9. You can switch skin types
Even if you’ve had the same exact skin type your whole life things like hormonal imbalance, climate change, and age can make your skin go from one type to another.
10. Genetics don’t determine how your skin ages
90% of premature aging and other factors such as pollution and smoking can factor into how quickly your skin ages.
