  4. What is skin? Fun facts • It’s the biggest organ!

  5. Busy as a bee Skin…it’s hard at work It takes 2 weeks to a month for new skin to come up to surface! • It has 3 parts: • The epidermis • 95% make new skin • 5% make melanin • Dermis • As you get older, this gets thinner • Home to oil glands (Sebum) and sweat • Subcutaneous layer (fat) • Home to hair follicle • Insulation

  6. Hair and Nails • An adaptation of the epidermis

  7. Some skin functions • Protective water-proof barrier • Protecting against excessive moisture loss or gain • Keeps out bugs • Viruses, germs, bacteria, fungus • Shields from UV rays • Regulates body temperatures • Excretes waste products through sweat

  8. Skin Type Determined by 3 things Skin types • Water content: • for suppleness and comfort • Fat content: • for nutrition and softness • Sensitivity level: • responsible for resistance and tolerance • Oily • Normal/Combination • Sensitive • Dry • Sun-damaged/aging

  9. What happens as you age? 40’s 50’s 60’s • New wrinkles • Increased dryness • Due to menopause • Sagging increases

  11. Step 1: Cleanse • Morning: splash with lukewarm water • Nighttime:use cleanser • Never use bar soap: too drying • Select cleanser for your skin type • Creamy cleanser for dry skin • Clear cleanser for oily skin

  12. Step 2: Exfoliate • Many people skip, but this step helps improve skin appearance • Types: • Retinoid creams/alpha hydroxy acids • Scrubs (weekly): look for “gentle” with tiny grains • Removes top layer of skin • Chemical peel (most effective, but expensive) • What about toners? • A good cleanser should do it…don’t need it.

  13. Step 3: Moisturize • Can’t get enough of this…regardless of skin type! • Moisturizer seals in moisture into skin • Very important as you get older • Best time to do it is after shower/bath • Use more “intense” as you age • Eye cream? • Some say yes, some say no
