Skin's evolutionary struggle...what's that?
200 million years ago, our skin did a lousy job not only in adapting to different climate conditions but also in repairing and renewing itself. Fast forward into the 21st century, medical research surprisingly discovered that skin has evolved way beyond what scientists thought was possible.
Your complexion is made up of dead skin cells. What we didn’t know until recently is that these dead skin cells are also biochemically alive and change in different climates. This evolutionary phenomenon is called the Natural Moisturizing Factor (NMF).
THE OUTER SKIN: EPIDERMIS
It’s the thin, visible part of the skin. It includes the outer layers and the barrier. The outer skin informs and protects the body in regards to diseases, temperature changes, and physical impacts. Since it is made of dead skin cells wrapped in lipids and held together by a waxy substance called sebum, it doesn’t need any nourishment from the body. Hence there are no blood vessels in the outer skin and you won’t bleed when you scratch it. Rather than depending on hydration solely from inside the body, the outer skin produces a mix of ingredients called the Natural Moisturizing Factor (NMF) to draw water from the atmosphere. NMF is part of skin’s natural climate IQ and recent studies have confirmed it components change to adjust to a climate.
