Human skin makes up 15% of our body weight and covers 2 square meters. In an adult, complete renewal of the skin cells takes 26-30 days, and the skin renews itself about 1000 times in a lifetime. How do you take care of your skin? What factors influence its condition? Are there really harmful skin care products? The answers to these and many other questions can be found in the books we have added to the new selection.
