Skin Care Q & A

Why is skin care important?

Your skin is your body’s primary barrier against infection and disease. It consists of three layers: the epidermis, dermis, and subcutaneous tissue. While the deep subcutaneous layer contains fat cells to insulate your body, the dermis — located in the middle — provides your body with connective tissue.

The epidermis is the most superficial layer of your skin, thus the most susceptible to environmental damage. As you age, the cells in your epidermis begin to thin, leading to laxity and wrinkles. Your number of sweat glands also decreases, which can cause dryness. 

Protecting your skin during every stage of life helps prevent damage both on top of your skin and inside its deeper layers.

What are the most common skin complaints?

Once you reach your teenage years, you may notice your once-clear skin changing in tone and texture. Depending on your age, you may have one or more of the following skin concerns:


Acne is an inflammatory skin condition that happens when your skin’s hair follicles clog with dead skin cells and an oily substance called sebum. While acne can occur at any age, it’s most common in teenagers and young adults.


Fine lines and wrinkles develop as you age. They occur when your skin starts losing its natural elasticity. While everybody gets wrinkles at some point, certain treatments can slow their progression.


Hyperpigmentation happens when patches of your skin become darker than the surrounding skin. It occurs thanks to an excess of melanin, a dark pigment that develops in your skin and hair.


Rosacea causes redness and small, pus-filled bumps that resemble acne. Most people with rosacea notice it most on the nose, cheeks, and forehead.
