Skin is the largest organ of the body, with a total area of about 20-22 square feet. It protects us from microbes and the elements, helps regulate body temperature, and permits the sensations of touch, heat, and cold. It gathers sensory information from the environment, and plays an active role in the immune system protecting us from disease.
In order to achieve optimal skin health, understanding skin structure, various skin types and conditions as well as factors that potentially cause damage is essential to choose the right treatment.
There are three major components of skin. First is the hypodermis, which is sybcutaneous (just beneath the skin) fat that functions as insulation and padding for the body. Next is the dermis, which provides structure and support. Last is the epidermis, which functions as a protective shield for the body.
The skin’s color is created by special cells called melanocytes, which produce the pigment melanin. Melanocytes are located in the epidermis.
Skin types include normal, oily, dry, and sensitive. Some people also have a combination of skin types in different areas of their skin. Skin type can change over time. For example, younger people are more likely than older people to have a normal skin type. Skin types vary depending upon factors such as: water content, which affects skin's comfort and elasticity, oil (lipid) content, which affects skin's softness and sensitivity level.
Normal skin is basically what everyone aims for. Normal skin is well balanced as well as appearing smooth, clear and healthy. It also has no oily or dry areas and few/none pronounced pores and lines. Av even skin tone and good elasticity is also a sign of having a normal skin type.
Oily skin is also called 'problem' skin. It appears greasy and shiny due to the icreased production of oil and the large pores. Those with oily skin tend to have lot of blemishes, blackheads and spots and skin often appears plump, because its dead cells do not shed as quickly.
Dry skin on the other hand, doesn’t produce enough oil which causes tight, flaky, fragile skin. The lack of oil also reduces the skin’s ability to act as a protective barrier meaning it’s much more vulnerable to UV radiation, pollution and weather conditions. Small pores are also a sign of dry skin.
Those with combination skin have both oily and dry areas – typically oily in the t-zone (forehead, nose and chin) and dry on the cheeks and around the eyes. This is probably the most tricky one as the different areas on your skin require different treatment.
Sensitive skin is the most fragile skin type. People with sensitive skin burn easily and is prone to redness and irritation when using products with harsh ingredients.
In order to maintain and improve the health and appearance of skin, a proper skincare regimen is essential. Although the specific products depend on skin type and skin conditions, every effective regimen must include three fundamental elements—Prevention, Protection, and Correction.
At Alen Mak Cosmetics, our product philosophy and consumer education programs are built around these principles. These three steps address and minimize the effects that environmental aggressors have on the skin and ensure an effective regimen for maintaining and improving the health and appearance of skin.
Think of Achromin® skincare products as an essential partner for healthy, beautiful skin.
Achromin® is an advanced skin whitening line, which treats the problem at the root cause. Achromin® carefully penetrates the upper layers of skin to reach the basal epidermis where melanocytes reside. There, Achromin specifically acts on over-active Melanocytes and not only controls excess pigment production, but actually normalizes those over-active cells! In the process, the cells surrounding the melanocytes also become healthy! This helps make the skin revert back to its young, firm and healthy form - free of not only Hyper-pigmentation but also lines, wrinkles, open-pores, roughness and acne.
Hyper-pigmentation is a skin disorder in which special cells called “Melanocytes”, that reside in the deep part of the skin called the “Basal epidermis” or “Basal Layer”, become overactive and produce excess ‘Melanin’. Melanin is the pigment that gives skin its colour and this excess production of Melanin is a symptom of the over-activity of Melanocytes. Hyper-pigmentation is a disorder that is very difficult to treat because the over-activity becomes permanent.
