Skincare for Men – Natural Aftershave Lotions
Since it is difficult to keep skin healthy and perfectly clear, we must become more familiar with its structure. It consists of three layers.
Hypodermis is the deepest, subcutaneous tissue in which fat is collected, which is needed for thermal isolation. But if fat is accumulated more abundantly, it will cause obesity.
The middle layer called dermis, or skin in the literal sense of the word: it is the most active part and the richest in blood vessels. In this layer are located the sweat glands, nerve endings of the senses of touch, heat, cold, pressure, pain …
Then comes the epidermis. This layer by itself is consists of several thin layers of skin cells that are more or less pigmented and give color (olive white, brown as white coffee, yellow, black…), which can get blacker when exposed to the sun, and sometimes responsible for skin spots. The skin surface is covered with dead cells that the body rejects (or skin peels). Normally, washing partially removes them, and it encourages young overgrowth of cells just beneath the surface. Flaking or peeling even better clean the extinct layer cells and allows to disappear small surface flaws.
