Do you think you know everything about skin? Do you know how to take care of it without damaging it? The first step before taking any treatments is to know more about the skin.
Information and awareness are the basis for acting in the best way, without worsening the condition of your face and obtaining results far from those desired.
In fact, in this new article from the Lagalene Blog, we reveal 10 things you don’t know about skin that could be very useful for a perfect skincare!
1- Skin is the largest organ in the body
Do you take care of your heart, liver and lungs? So why not take care of your skin too? The organ that protects us, that surrounds us, and the most exposed of all, deserves the right attention and the right care to stay healthy and avoid premature aging.
2- The thickness of the skin is not all the same
The skin on average is 2 millimeters thick, but there are areas, such as the palms of the hands, the soles of the feet and the nape, where it is 4 millimeters thick, in fact it is more resistant. Instead, there are some parts where it is super delicate and subtle, like the eye area, just 0.3mm! For this Lagalene proposes a specific treatment, the Ultra intensive Care Treatment suitable for treating the eye contour area with a delicate sphere to slide on bags and dark circles!
3- The renewal of skin occurs every 28 days
Skin cells regenerate and take 28 days to cross the deepest layer of the skin, the basal layer, to reach the surface of the epidermis, and then detach, fall off and make room for new cells. This process can be helped with delicate peelings such as those that feature lactic acid, present in our Hyper Moisturizing Serum.
4- In life, about 20 kg of skin are lost
Every minute, 30,000 to 40,000 cells are lost per minute. In one day there are 1440 minutes so one day 43 to 58 million cells are lost every day. About twenty kg over the course of an average life.
5- Skin acts as a thermoregulator of our body
When it is hot, the blood vessels dilate to disperse more heat through the skin into the atmosphere, however, when it is cold, the opposite happens, i.e. the vessels narrow in order to retain all the heat inside.
6- Skin repairs itself during sleep
When we sleep, our skin transforms, shapes itself, better absorbs the active ingredients of skincare that we unwind before going to bed. This is why it is essential to never neglect the beauty routine, especially before going to sleep.
7- Your skin type changes during your life
Changes in temperature, the climatic conditions of the city we live in, and age, are factors that could change your skin type throughout your life. So it is important to monitor for any change and adapt your skincare. With Lagalene Milano the skincare routine is versatile and suitable for all skin types, only the doses change!
8- Skin aging does not depend on genetics
Many think that skin aging is genetic, but this is not the case. The causes of aging are various including pollution, smoking, alcohol consumption, the skincare adopted which could be incorrect or full of harmful chemicals, and sun exposure, one of the major causes.
9- Skin is our alarm bell
Whenever something is wrong, our skin makes us understand. Think for example when we are stressed, our skin changes, becomes dull, pimples and redness arise like dermatitis. In other cases, our skin is also a wake-up call for certain diseases such as infections, liver disease or heart disease. So never underestimate anything!
10- The skin of men and women is different
The skin of men and women is not the same, usually men’s skin is 20% thicker than that of women, but it still needs skincare that purifies the skin, hydrates and illuminates it. For this reason Lagalene products are unisex, and are widely appreciated by men, for example, the Multi-sense Treatment Complex is appreciated as an aftershave treatment for its soothing and anti-inflammatory power.
Now that we have discovered all these curiosities about the skin, will you continue to neglect it or will you be even more careful, and will you apply only certified products, natural, and without harmful chemicals?
Lagalene Milano carries on our concept of holistic and natural cosmetics based on active ingredients that exceed 99% naturalness, Made in Italy and cruelty-free, a skincare without distinction, unisex and suitable for all skin types!
