The Scandinavian Skincare Bible: the definitive guide to understanding your skin

Buy
We get goosebumps if someone strokes our skin gently. The reason for this is that a tiny hair-erector muscle — the arrector pili, located deep in each hair follicle — responds to nerve signals from the brain. Our hairs stand on end, and the layer of air they trap protects us against the cold. The skin, our body’s outer shell, is a fascinating organ that embodies memories from its evolutionary development. Yet given that it’s our largest organ, with a surface area of two square metres, we know surprisingly little about it — either about its structure, or about how best to take care of it. We know that oily fish are good for the brain, that olive oil is good for the heart, and that the calcium in yoghurt strengthens the skeleton. But what about our skin? This book takes a fresh look at the skin from a holistic perspective. What can the latest research tell us about our skin? What’s your own personal skin type, and what is its current status? What can you do to make your skin healthier? And what role do the skin’s micro-organisms play? How can nutrition and lifestyle affect skin health? Science is advancing all the time, and right now major discoveries are being made about the skin’s own microbiome: its bacterial flora, comprising hundreds of millions of micro-organisms that work together with skin cells and which, we now know, play a decisive role in our health. At the same time, we expose our skin to too many antibacterial substances in our daily skincare products. Currently, scientific congresses worldwide are discussing how cosmetics and skincare affect our skin’s microbiome, which is comparable to the gut microbiome, long known to be vulnerable to the effects of preservatives and processed food.
