beyond the basic principles of cosmetology
Epidermology is a new approach and a different method in cosmetology that focuses on supporting the skin’s invisible living layer.
Epidermis or “The Miracle Wrap” is the upper layer of our skin, which is extremely effective first-line defense from the outside world. It helps to shield us from pollution, chemicals and infections as well as prevent dehydration and mechanical stress. What’s more interesting is that recent studies show that on the surface of our skin lives an invisible layer of billions of microorganisms. These include microbes, bacteria and fungi that together create an ecosystem which interacts with the environment. The defining characteristic of an ecosystem is resilience – the ability to recover quickly from shock or trauma. A healthy ecosystem must be able to bounce back fast. Similarly, the ecosystem that we carry with us on the skin must be resilient to be able to recover from shock such as sunburn or dehydration. Resilient skin is healthy skin which is achieved by supporting the invisible living layer of the skin.

the role of epidermologist
