The Precious Layers of Our Skin and Why They Need Protecting

I’ve just returned from a visit to my Dermatologist, and started to think about the different layers of our skin and how skin cancers or age spots form. What is each layer made up of and what does it do? We know there are three main layers – the Epidermis (top layer), the Dermis (middle with everything that keeps our face “up”) and the Hypodermis (the base).  Although this may be a little scientific to understand, I hope to provide a description of what each layer of our skin is made up of and how our skin protects us!

While heredity does play a part, there is plenty you can do to protect this largest organ of your body.
