Wie ist unsere Haut

Skin types, skin conditions and skin problems are individual, but the structure of our skin is not. Here you can see a cross-section of the skin.

Our skin consists of three layers: Upper skin (epidermis), dermis and lower skin (subcutis). Each layer performs important functions. For example, the epidermis is responsible for protecting us from environmental influences such as UV light and dirt. The dermis consists of nerves, blood vessels, sweat glands, sebaceous glands and hair follicles. Its function is to supply our skin with nutrients. The subcutis or hypodermis consists mainly of connective tissue, which is filled with fat cells. The subcutis stores water, nutrients, fats and salts. It regulates the water balance and serves as a heat and nutrient reservoir. Thus, it protects us from hypothermia in winter.

The sebaceous glands are also clearly visible in our picture. Even if they have often annoyed us with the one or other pimple, they are very important for our skin, because they protect it from drying out and keep germs away from us.


What are the tasks of our skin?

What are the tasks of our skin?

Our skin has many different tasks. It acts as a protective shield for our body, protecting us from water loss, dirt, UV rays, pathogens, fungi, bacteria, chemicals, pressure and friction. It also stores the good nutrients and heat in our body. Through sebum and sweat, it regulates heat and moisture.

Our skin is also responsible for tactile perception. It can distinguish between different substances and recognize touch. Through ultraviolet-induced synthesis, our body is also supplied with vitamin D through our skin. So our skin does a lot! All the more important that we also take good care of it.

What influences the appearance of our skin?

The appearance of our skin is co-determined by many different factors. Age, genetics and hormones, for example, are factors that we can hardly influence. The situation is different when it comes to our diet, sufficient sleep, avoiding nicotine and unprotected UV radiation, and the correct application of our skin care.

Our skin type is innate and develops through hormonal changes during puberty. No skin type is good or bad and we ourselves have no influence on it at all. Therefore, when we use care, we do not treat our skin type, but always our acute skin condition.

For example, if someone with an oily skin type (seborrhea), has acutely clogged pores and an increased appearance of impurities, we have to take care of these two cosmetic problems, but not the skin type, because it will not change through cosmetics. Nevertheless, knowing one's skin type helps in adjusting the care. Thus, for dry skin, one uses richer care to compensate for the lack of moisture and fat and thus prevent typical problems such as dandruff or wrinkles, and for oily skin, a light care that does not clog the pores additionally.
You don't know what skin type you have? Then find out now.

Clean your face with a mild cleanser, pat dry with a clean towel and wait an hour. After that, look at your skin in detail.

Is the face oily? - Then you probably have oily skin.

Do small wrinkles appear deeper and your skin is taut? - Then you probably have dry skin.

Is your T-zone shiny while other parts of your face are tight? - Then you probably have combination skin.

Your skin is not taut, your pores are fine, you have no impurities and feel good? - Then you probably have "normal" skin.
