The growing knowledge of the skin's physiology mean that it is possible to prevent and even repair skin damage which occurs later on in life. Thus, the latest researches in Main Mechanisms of skin protection is focused on developing skin protection products not from a plain Sun Protection Factor but from the cells themselves.

Corneal layer of our skin fulfils skin protection function. It is one of the most important functions of corneal layer because without it we would have got very dry peeling skin in case of increase of moisture loss. Such skin is not only vulnerable to different external factors (mechanical injuries, impact of chemical instances etc.) but can also open gates to infections. For this reason dry skin with a low skin barrier are mainsprings of sensitive skin.

Another Protective Mechanism of Skin

Positive things you can do to keep you lipid secretion balanced is drinking plenty of water everyday and moisturize the skin when it is dry. Supply your skin with anti-oxidants to fight off free radicals - this is where skin care products, lotions and skin care creams come into play. All of them add much needed moisture to the skin, allowing it to become more elastic and helping to delay aging so we can have our skin looking young and healthy for as long as possible

Skin lipid Secrection

Skin lipid secretion is another protective mechanism of skin. It creates lipid layer that prevents skin damages and microbes penetration, significantly softening skin at the same time.

Shortage of lipid also makes skin dry and vulnerable. But its excess can cause increase of skin sensitiveness as its components - squalene, fatty acids, when abundant, can cause irritation.

Skin acidity level

The acid mantle is an effective form of protection, but if your pH level is too alkaline or too acidic, the mantle is disturbed and skin conditions such as dermatitis, eczema, and rosacea may result.

Our skin is naturally designed to fight infection and environmental stresses and its ability to do so is affected by its pH level. The pH level of the skin refers to how acidic or alkaline it is.

Healthy skin has got ph 5.5 acidity level. It is reached due to normal activity of perspiratory glands. Perspiration serves as a protective mechanism as it washes away dirt from the skin and also neutralises some types of disease causing microbes. But shift of ph to the acid side leads to keratolysis and irritation.
