A recent study has demonstrated that UV damage continues on for hours after exposure to the sun. Once you come into the shade, you are not safe, it seems. There appears to be a cellular process which begins with the sun’s rays shining down upon your skin, and then keeps going for hours, even increasing the damage over time.
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!
Human Skin is composed of 3 distinct layers, the Epidermis, Dermis, and Hypodermis, each of which plays a vital role in maintaining healthy skin structure and function!
