HOW ARE SCARS FORMED ?

Skin: the mirror of life At a size of 1.5 to 2 square metres, the skin is the human body’s largest organ. It has the greatest number of nerves and accounts for up to 20% of the body weight. It performs various complicated bodily functions such as regulating heat, protecting the body against infections and environmental influences, and preventing it from drying out. It is therefore extremely important that it can function properly, yet the skin is much more than “just” an organ: skin is the contact with the outside world.

The intrinsic factor of dry skin
Diabetes And Dry Skin
Skin problems occur very frequently among diabetics. A reduction in the amount of moisture reaching the dermis or epidermis from not drinking enough and a lack of nourishment at a cellular level due to the reduced circulation cause chronic dry skin. When skin is dry, the unique barrier structure is damaged so that more moisture is lost and irritants may penetrate the skin. You end up in a vicious circle: once the barrier is damaged, protection is lost and irritants, allergies and infections arise that damage the barrier even further.

How to cope with cold ?
WHAT EFFECT DOES COLD HAVE ON THE BODY? — Interview of Greet Claes, by Wesley Muyldermans, sports journalist & writer— Our body wants to maintain a constant temperature (homoeotherm). Vital organs, such as our hearts and stomachs, need this to function properly. Our skin has sensitive cold receptors that can detect a sharp drop in skin temperature and pass on this information to the brain. They emit more pulses when cooling down than when warming up and they are also more numerous than heat receptors. Cold receptors are also known as Krause's corpuscles. They can detect cold because they react to tissue shrinkage caused by a drop in temperature. When it’s cold, the blood vessels in the skin contract and blood flow to the surface of our bodies drops. Heat has the opposite effect, as everything opens up to release the excess body heat.
