Wondering why you can not use body soap on your face? Or even your regular liquid body wash? Why does the cosmetics industry produce individual products specifically for the face and body?
The skin of your face is very different from the skin of the rest of your body. You must have a thorough knowledge of your skin to develop in-depth skin care. In this article we will discuss how your facial skin differs from the rest of your body. But before proceeding, you should be aware of the anatomy of the skin.
Your skin consists of three layers:
- Epidermis: This is the top layer of your skin (which you can see) . It acts as a protective layer and waterproof barrier and is responsible for skin tone.
- The Derma: This layer is just beneath the epidermis. It contains connective tissue, sweat glands and hair follicles.
- Hypodermis: This is a subcutaneous tissue made of connective tissues and mainly stores fat.
The epidermis, dermis and hypodermis of your face are different from those of the rest of the body.  How does the skin of the person differ from the skin
Let's continue on the layer!
1. The epidermis
The epidermis of your skin has several sublayers, including layer basal and corneal layer . These sublayers have different types of cells that are responsible for various functions, such as the protective effects of the epidermis and skin tone. Cells include: Keratinocytes: These cells account for about 90% of the epidermis. They are continuously subjected to cell division and substitution. Older cells migrate to the top layer of the skin and are called corneocytes.
These cells are not evenly distributed on the face and body. The epidermis of your face is thinner than the epidermis of your body due to uneven distribution of cells. Let's Look:
The Epidermis of the Face Vs. The epidermis of the body
|Skin cells||Face|| Keratinocytes
|| Old cells migrate to the upper layer of the skin for one week
|| Cell migration occurs for 2 weeks. Corneocytes
|| Less layers of corneocytes (about 4-8)
|| · Most of the body contains 11-17 layers.
· The palms and feet contain 23-71 layers. Melanocytes
| · Melanin levels are high
· Contains 15 melanocytes per square millimeter, because your face is exposed to the sun more than your body.
| · Melanin levels are low (in areas often exposed to sun, such as hands)  · Contains 15 melanocytes per square millimeter
|Langerhans||The concentration of these cells is unknown  The concentration of these cells is unkn|
|Merkel cells||The concentration of these cells is unknown|| The concentration of these cells is unknown but they are found in the genitals, torso and extremities. is elastic and gives strength as it contains elastic and fibrous tissues the dermis also contains:  In the dermis there are two types of sweat glands – apocrine glands (found in areas where you have more hair, such as under the armpits and groin and eccentric glands ( large sweat glands responsible for producing sweat and controlling body temperature by evaporation.)
Face Derma Against.
| · Apocrine Glands – Very Little
· Elephant Glands – Approximately 320 per cm of cheeks and 360 per square on the forehead.
|· Apocrine glands – found in areola, armpits and perineum (the area between the genitals and the anus).  · Ecrin glands – 620 per square cm on the soles, 300 per square on the palms, 65 per square on the back and 120 per cm in the thighs.||Blood vessels||More blood vessels||Fewer blood vessels|
|19659028] · Plenty on the scalp and face (about 900 glands in Sm square)  · Less||It is found throughout the body, except for the soles, palms and some parts of the genitals. · Sebaceous glands on the back are large 59030] Hair follicles|| · Before puberty, both men and women have hairy hairs.
· During puberty, women retain their hair hair while they become men in hair
| · Before puberty, hair is found all over the body. Women keep it on her chest and back.
· During puberty, hair is replaced by terminal hair. Men receive terminal hair on the legs, arms, chest and abdomen
Hypodermis is the innermost layer of your skin and a storage of fat cells that protect the body from heat and cold. It also contains fatty tissue (the type of fat) that the body uses when faced with a calorie deficiency.
Hypodermis Facial Vs. Hypodermis of the body
In general, in women, the hypodermis is the thickest in areas such as thighs, thighs and thighs. In men, it is the thickest in the thighs and abdomen. However, when it comes to the person, both men and women have thick hypodermic deposits in their cheeks.
If you touch the skin of the face, scalp, underarms, arms and legs, you can feel the difference. This is why every part of the body requires specific skin care products and deep skin care. The skin of your face
- is always exposed and absorbs stress, pollution and UV rays. Therefore, it is sensitive and ages faster than the rest of your body.
- is susceptible to defects, hyperpigmentation and skin problems. Compared to the skin of the rest of the body, it needs specific skin care products to cope with all these problems and promote regeneration of the cells.
- is delicate, especially the area around your eyes, so it needs special care and gentle care.
Your scalp is rich in blood vessels and contains more sebaceous glands from any other part of your body. This is because the sebaceous glands are attached to the hair follicles, and your scalp has a maximum hair concentration.
