Hello my lovely Apples, it’s a beautiful Wednesday and I hope y’all doing fine?

On today’s post, let’s learn from the segment skincare 101.

THE SKIN: The skin is the largest organ of the body, with a total area of about 20 square feet. The epidermis, the outermost layer of skin, provides a waterproof barrier and creates our skin tone. The dermis, beneath the epidermis, contains tough connective tissue, hair follicles, and sweat glands and the deeper subcutaneous tissue (hypodermis) is made up of fat and connective tissue.

Our skin is a very delicate part of the body and so it’s very important to be careful what will apply on the skin.
