Ten steps to prevent wrinkles – Part 2

 

Skin is the largest organ on our body. It comprises three layers: the epidermis (outermost layer), the dermis (middle layer), and the hypodermis (subcutaneous fat). The dermis contains collagen, elastin, and other fibers that support the skin’s structure. It gives the elasticity and smoothness of your face. This is also the layer which are damaged by UV radiation (UVR). Now you understand why people around you has been telling you to wear your sunscreen before you step out of your house.

UVR is made up of two different types of waves – UVA and UVB. When your skin is exposed to UVR, the cells in the middle layer (dermis) will produce melanin to the epidermis -> which cause you to be tanned.

The damage of the collagen fibers will cause and increasingly production of abnormal elastin, result in the production of enzymes called metalloproteinase, leading to the degrading of collagen.
