Back at 2020, when the pandemic hit hard on us, people around the globe had a chance to embrace self love by the form of taking care of their skin… at home and that is when skin enthusiasts, estheticians, dermatologists, etc. came into surface to share their knowledge about skin and skincare, though, of course, we won’t prevent seeing unusual things on Facebook, instagram, twitter, especially Tiktok!
We’re here to jot down some crazy things for you:
Skin is the largest organ of the body.
The skin is not just a cover up for our internal organs but it’s also the body’s first line of defense to prevent us from getting catching bad microorganisms.
2. You have micro-pets on your skin!
It’s actually a diverse environment for trillions of different bacteria, fungi, viruses, protozoa and even small insects.
3. Melanin? We love her.
The more melanin you have, the more protection you have from skin damage and a more laid-back skin aging (but even you have been blessed with melanin, you still need to wear spf.)
4. Pores doesn’t open and close.
Pores aren’t doors but they’re more of doorways. Pores only have enlargement due to some contributing factors; e.g. losing elasticity, congestion, increased oil production, genetics, hormones, sun damage, over washing, etc. So it’s just basically enlargement and minimizing the appearance but it doesn’t necessarily open and close.
