Skin Problems

The major skin problems most people face are wrinkling (due to age), and blemishes, or acne. 

Aging or Wrinkling

Aging of the skin occurs when collagen becomes hard and gets meshed with neighboring collagen fibers. This prevents the collagen from holding water and plumping up. Instead, it collapses on itself, binds with other collagen fibers, and forms a kind of fishnet below the surface of the skin, which is manifested as wrinkles. 

Oxidation or free radical formation plays a pivotal role in the cross-linking of collagen. This is what happens:

1. The atoms of human tissue begin to decay, or lose electrons. This results in a deficiency of electron.

2. The atom attempts to regain its electrical balance by stealing one or more electrons from neighboring atoms.

3. This, in turn, creates another atom that has a deficiency of electron. The atom tries to steal electron from another atom.

4. The result is a chain reaction in which atoms are changing their structures and forming bonds that would not otherwise occur.

5. The net effect is a chaos of cross-linking collagen fibers, revealed on the skin's surface as wrinkles.

Acne

Acne occurs when oil, called sebum, blocks the pores and hair follicles at the skin's surface, thus preventing the skin from eliminating oil and waste. This causes waste to accumulate in the pores, resulting in pockets of inflection that manifest as red sores, boils, and pimples, Acne does not occur when the pores remain unblocked.
