We Know Your Skin
The Skin is a multilayered protective wrap for the body, it is a frontier which mediates between the organism and the environment. It not only controls the loss of Valuable fluid, prevents penetration of noxious foreign materials and radiation and cushions mechanical shock, but also regulates heat loss and transduces incoming stimuli.
There are two general types of skin, hairy and glabrous skin. The Sebaceous glands are responsible for the Oily or Dry Texture of the Skin. Overactive sebaceous glands are responsible for oily skin whereas the low activity of sebaceous glands cause the dryness of the skin.
The most common & basic of Skin problems is Oiliness or Dryness of Skin. Oiliness of Skin is caused by the Sebum Secreted by the Sebaceous glands. Sebum is a Naturally Healthy lubricant for the skin. When the skin produces excessive sebum, it becomes heavy and thick in texture. Oily skin is typified by shininess, blemishes and pimples. The oily-skin type is not necessarily bad, since such skin is less prone to wrinkling, or other signs of aging, because the oil helps to keep needed moisture locked into the epidermis (outermost layer of skin).
The negative aspect of the oily-skin type is that oily complexions are especially susceptible to clogged pores, blackheads, and buildup of dead skin cells on the surface of the skin. Oily skin can be sallow and rough in texture and tends to have large, clearly visible pores everywhere, except around the eyes and neck.
The skin is partially permeable; it allows certain amount of external contents to pass in.
