(Aging) Elastin of skin

(Aging) Elastin of skin

The skin is composed of the epidermis and dermis, and the dermis is divided into two major layers.

The top layer and the lower layer, both of these layers contain collagen and elastin. The collagen is in the lower layer of the dermis while the elastin is in the upper layer of the dermis.

Whatever the cause of sun or free radicals within the skin, the elastin undergoes degradation from enzyme Elastase. The specific action of elastase is to break down elastic fibers. The result is a loss of retraction in the skins, the skin is pulled by gravity, so  that the skin droops and stays droopy.

Elastin of skin (laxity)

Skin laxity is one major sign in aging seen before wrinkles, because of contrasted with sun-damaged.

Usually there is a noticeable discoloration of the skin before other changes are seen, and the skin reddish-brown, almost leather- like appearance. Real wrinkles starting first around the eyes and mouth, progressing to the middle and lower face and then the neck.

As the process continues, the wrinkles become deeper. If the individual is a smoker and drinker, besides being a sunbather, the progress is very fast after the 37-40 age range.

‘Age”, “Sex,”

Autoimmune diseases can occur at any age, a general tendency exists for autoimmune disease to become more common with increasing age. Sex is another thing, women are more likely to develop many of the autoimmune disorders, with more different probabilities for different disorders. Overall autoimmune disease are five times more common in women than in men.

What is the difference between Collagen and Elastin

The connective tissue consists of three type of fibers, Collagen, Elastin and Reticulum. Collagenis composed of complex fibers made up of protein and arranged in long chains. Collagen is tough anddoes not strech easily and makes up 10 to 30% of the wet weight of the dermis. Elastin is composed of a highly resilient material that chemically is different from collagen

Pigmentation, Discoloration, Spot

Pigmentation, Discoloration, Spot

Genetic aspect of skin pigmentation

Colors are very important in our life. Most colors in biological materials are due to complex molecules, the most complex of which is Melanin .Melanin also known as pigment.

Skin color tones have Yellow, Blue, Red, and Brown. Yellow to the pigments called Carotenoids, Blue color is due to the Hemoglobin in the veins, Red is due to a blood pigment called Oxygenated hemoglobin, and last one the major brown color to the presence of the pigment melanin, which is produced melanocytes. Skin colors are a combination of melanin, hemoglobin, carotenoids and condition of the Stratum Corneum (first layer of epidermal).

Flaky skin of any color looks whiter or lighter because it can’t absorb light. What is perceived in skin color is the reflected light off the skin.

Melanin

The melanin absorbs both ultraviolet light and visible light. The more melanin in the skin, the more light is absorbed and the darker the skin looks. In the case of black skin with more melanin, the broad absorption of light by melanin allows less light to reflect, so what is seen are mainly the reflected brown hues.

It is this broad absorption band of melanin that gives black skin protective quality against ultraviolet light. Melanin functions to prevent ultraviolet radiation of black skin by absorbing the highly energetic radiation and converting the energy to heat. This explains why dark completed individuals find it uncomfortable to lie in the sun and prefer to wear clothing to cover their skin when working outdoors.

Caucasian skin, so called white skin, actually is a red-brown hue. But because Caucasian skin does not contain as much melanin as black skin, white light is reflected from surfaces that do not absorb specific colors so the total spectrum, which is white light perceived. This reduction in melanin contents results in a reduced ability of the skin to protect itself from damaging ultraviolet radiation. This explains the increased incidence of melanoma, squamous cell carcinoma, basal cell carcinoma, wrinkling and discoloration seen in light skin colors as compared to darker skin color

Essential Oils

Essential Oils

It is important to have knowledge about essential oils; a limited knowledge can be dangerous. So

We should learn all about and how to use them. Your best source of instruction is someone who has long experience with the use of essential oils in treatment. Here are some points that will help you to understand some of the ways essential oils work. Cellular effect

Active ingredient can have an effect on the body as a whole it must first have a cellular effect. If the essential oil is applied on the body or skin by massage, a large area is covered and the oil will penetrate the skin to the lower layers and eventually stream, it will circulate around the body and reach all the cells. The effect on the cell will be related to the amount of essential oil that reaches the cells. That penetrates the skin is related to the amount applied, and condition of the skin. We should know that the same amount of essential oil applied on inflamed or broken skin will have greater effect than the same essential oil applied on normal or intact skin.
