Our skin structure consists of three layers:
The epidermis represents the surface of the skin and directly reflects the health, texture, hydration level and complexion of the skin. As we age, dehydrated skin, fine lines and freckles will start appearing on the epidermis.
The dermis contains three types of tissues: collagen fibers, elastic fibers, reticular fibers which supports the epidermis. These fibers naturally reduce over time and will lead to wrinkles and sagging skin.
The hypodermis is the third and deepest layer of the skin.
The hypodermis refers to the fat tissue below the dermis that insulates the body from cold temperatures and provides shock absorption. Fat cells of the hypodermis also store nutrients and energy. This has the least affect on our skin condition.
