The skin is the body’s largest Organ
The skin is the body’s largest organ and accounts for about 15 percent of body weight. It consists of three main layers, an outer layer known as the epidermis, the layer below called the dermis and the deeper layer named hypodermis. The skin protects the body from many external forces such as bacteria, physical injury and UV radiation. It performs a range of different functions that include regulating body temperature, permitting the sensation of touch and protecting from wear and tear.
Like every vital organ, the skin loses some function as we age that causes a change to it’s complexion and texture. This change can sometimes bring about a decline in the production of importantContinue readingMore Tag

Experts have isolated a ‘harmless’ skin virus which could help treat certain kinds of Acne.
Scientists at the University of California, Los Angeles and the University of Pittsburgh have found ‘harmless’ viruses living on the skin that target Propionibacterium acnes. They are testing them to see if they can be used as a treatment for acne. Professor Robert Modlin is the lead scientist on the current work at UCLA: “Harnessing a virus that naturally preys on the bacteria that causes pimples could offer a promising new tool against the physical and emotional scars of severe acne.” (bbc.co.uk)
Acne occurs when the hair follicles in the skin become blocked with a substance called sebum. The skin produces sebum to prevent itself from drying out, but sometimes it produces too much. Once blocked, the follicles can then become infected by a bacterium called Propionibacterium acnes. These bacteria usually live harmlessly on the skin, but when they infect blocked hair follicles this leads to inflammation, which causes acne spots to appear.Continue readingMore Tag
