Anatomy of the Skin

The Skin forms a natural barrier against allergens, viruses and bacteria. So it’s important to help keep it healthy.

It is the largest organ of the human body and has three layers: The top layer of the epidermis (the outermost layers of cells in the skin), followed by the dermis and the subcutaneous layer.

Skin: The vital barrier

Skin is a barrier that protects our body from the external environment, including harmful substances such as chemicals and microorganisms like bacteria and viruses.

Skin also helps to regulate body temperature, is important for sensations such as touch and pain, and produces the essential Vitamin D.

Importance of skin care routines

Good skin care routines for skin problems in different skin types are important for keeping your skin healthy.

When your skin looks and feels good you can feel confident and at ease. A good skin care routine is key to making a noticeable difference in your skin condition.

For many with dry and itchy skin needs, E45 medical skin care products provide treatments for symptomatic relief.

Skin conditions are an ongoing problem for people of all ages. There are a large number of skin conditions that can affect the quality of life like dry skin, psoriasis, eczema and many others. Your skin is what the world sees first, so a skin condition can feel overwhelming.
