Skin is the bodies’ largest organ, so taking care if it should be a priority for us all. Skin is made up of three layers, each with its own important role.
The outside layer is the epidermis. The bottom of the epidermis is constantly forming new cells which start to move to the top of the epidermis once they are completed. At the top of the epidermis, old cells die and eventually flake off, to be replaced with the newly formed cells. In fact, every minute of the day we loose between 30,000 and 40,000 dead skin cells from the surface of our skin!
The layer under the epidermis is called the dermis. The dermis contains nerve endings, blood vessels, oil glands and sweat glands, and also tough and stretchy collagen and elastin.
The third and bottom layer is subcutaneous fat. It is made up mostly of fat and helps our bodies stay warm and absorb shocks, such as bumps and bruises. The subcutaneous layer also helps hold our skin to all the tissues underneath.
* Skin concerns falls into two fundamental categories. The first category is a medical problem with skin which may include rashes, infections from bacteria, skin irritations, acne, fungal infections, herpes and other common skin disorders. Short-term medical skin conditions can include sunburn, itches, insect bits, minor skin cuts, and bruises.
The second category is cosmetic concerns with skin. This includes aging, daily skin care and the effects of diet on the skin.
Some skin concerns transcend both categories, whereas good skin often signifies overall good health and wellbeing, poor skin could well be a sign all is not well internally or be a result of many years of poor diet and skincare.

Permanent makeup is a cosmetic technique which employs tattoos (permanent pigmentation of the dermis) as a means of producing designs that resemble makeup, such as eye lining and other permanent enhancing colors to the skin of the face, lips, and eyelids. It is also used to produce artificial eyebrows, particularly in people who have lost them as a consequence of old age, disease, such as alopecia, chemotherapy, or a genetic disturbance, and to disguise scars and white spots in the skin such as in vitiligo. It is also used to restore or enhance the breast's areola, such as after breast surgery.
