Dermocosmetics is where cosmetics and dermatology – or beauty and health – meet. Nowadays, we have a better understanding of how skin reacts to external stresses such as sunlight or pollution. We know more about why and how skin ages and loses its firmness, wrinkles appear, and skin conditions develop.
The skin is the largest organ of the body, which acts as a barrier to protect the internal organs from injury and bacteria. It is also a good indicator of the overall health of the body, making the field of dermatology important in the diagnosis and management of many health conditions.
