Taking Care Of Your Skin Is
Vital For Good Health

Skin plays a crucial role in our health and well-being. Not only does it help you look younger, good skin care works as a barrier against environmental elements that filter into our system. Our precious skin shields the layer of skin between the epidermis (which makes up the outermost layers of skin) from exposure, damaging bacteria, viruses, infection and injury, therefore we need clean, non toxic and nourished skin to stay healthy. Not only does it help us look younger, proper skin care will keep you healthy throughout your aging years.

The quest to keep our skin silky soft, supple, and young looking is ancient old, but maintaining healthy skin is also crucial for good health. It always helps when we understand how things work and why. A more youthful, glowing complexion and healthy body is truly within your grasp.

The epidermis is composed of 5 sub-layers of skin that work together to continually rebuild the surface of the skin and they are:

The Stratum Corneum (nucleus) is the top layer of the epidermis and consists of 10 to 30 thin layers of continually shedding, dead keratinocytes packed tightly together. It serves as an important barrier that protects the under layers from molecules passing in and out of the skin, and keeps vital nutrients in. It's critically important because it retains the needed moisture that keeps skin elastic and soft. The nucleus controls all cell activity. As we age the Statum Corneum breaks down and cuts off the inner layers from nutrient supply. The Stratum Corneum thins, the skin loses moisture, cell shedding slows, collagen breaks down and amino acids, proteins and peptides, the building blocks of life are restricted, thus skin loses elasticity, and toxins and other environmental elements enter into our body.

Stratum Lucidum is a layer of dead skin cells often found on the soles of the feet and palms of the hand. It involves the breakdown of the nucleus and the thickening of the plasma membrane by dissolving lipids and proteins, disturbing the bonds that hold the cell membrane.

Langerhans' cells is the front line defense that protects the skin's immune system. And new studies have found that Langerhans cells function to prevent excessive responses in the skin. "Failure of this mechanism could result in chronic inflammatory skin conditions like lupus and psoriasis", according to professor of laboratory medicine and immunobiology at Yale".

The Melanocyte cell produces pigment melanin. When the sun shines on the pigment, skin tans and causes dark spots. Melanin block the sun's harmful rays, which can also lead to cancer or other skin disorders [source: Merck Manuals].

Merkel cell function, referred to as Tastzellen or "touch cells", a cell at or near the epithelial-dermal junction and believed to be involved in light touch sensation; they function as touch receptors, the nerve ending that responds to stimulus.

It is crucial that you replenish your skin daily with vitamins, amino acids, minerals, peptides, collagen, essential oils, etc. so you can restore what's been lost. Peptides encourage the skin to make new collagen and are the building blocks of proteins.

Sarah's Luxury Anti-Aging Skin Care Products have the essential ingredients needed to nourish and repair the broken down epidermis layers. And don't forget to replenish your entire body, even your hands and the soles of your feet.

How we look to the world may not be the most important function of the epidermis, but when our skin becomes dry and damaged we look older than we actually are, and it effects our overall health and well-being. When we take care of our skin and nourish and replenish our epidermis with properly, our body will remain strong, protected and healthy for years to come.
