missy_chareka #melanin: (noun) mel·a·nin \ˈme-lə-nən\
The #pigment that gives #human #skin, #hair, and #eyes their #color. #Dark-skinned people have more melanin in their skin than light-skinned people have. Melanin is produced by cells called #melanocytes.

beautyonrose Do you know what melanocytes are? What they do and how they function? #melanocytes #melanin #skinbiology #beauty #skin #tan #dontcry #beautyonrose 2w
  •   lovelifebewell_blog They produce the pigment melanin which gives the skin it's color they also have a protective function 🤗 2w
  •   beautyologist That's awesome!!!!! 2w
  •   advancedskinbeauty Ha ha love this 🏻 2w
  •   beautyonrose That's it @lovelifebwell! They protect us when we need them most. And sometimes with sun damage, life factors and other contributions they go a little crazy and that's how we get pigmentation. Great little late night find from yesterday! 2w

sensibleesthetician Your skin has a huge responsibility to protect your body. It's made to be tough and stretchy. There is a lot more to this job than you may think! Your Skin has three layers:

The epidermis, the outermost layer of skin, provides a waterproof barrier and creates our skin tone.
The dermis, beneath the epidermis, contains tough connective tissue, hair follicles, and sweat glands.
The deeper subcutaneous tissue (hypodermis) is made of fat and connective tissue.
The skin’s color is created by special cells called melanocytes, which produce the pigment melanin. Melanocytes are located in the epidermis. #layersofskin#esthetician#esthetics#melanocytes#epidermis#facialist

vicdermalgroup #Vitiligo is a disorder in which white patches of skin appear on different parts of the body. This happens because the cells that make pigment in the skin are destroyed. These cells are called #melanocytes. Vitiligo can also affect the mucous membranes (such as the tissue inside the mouth and nose) and the eye.
The cause is not known. Vitiligo may be an autoimmune disease. These diseases happen when your immune system mistakenly attacks some part of your own body. In vitiligo, the immune system may destroy the melanocytes in the skin. It is also possible that one or more genes may make a person more likely to get the disorder.

Others think that a single event such as sunburn or emotional distress can cause vitiligo. But these events have not been proven to cause vitiligo.

Many people develop it in their twenties, but it can occur at any age. The disorder affects all races and both sexes equally, however, it is more noticeable in people with dark skin.

Treatments include:
Sunscreen: The two goals of #sunscreen treatments are to protect unpigmented involved skin from sunburn reaction and to limit the tanning of normal #pigmented skin. The SPF of sunscreens should be no less than SPF 30, as this grade blocks not only erythema, but also the affects of sunlight on the DNA of the skin cells.

Laser therapy: This procedure brings colour back to patches of light skin by treating them with an excimer laser, which uses a specific wavelength of UVB light. It can be used only on small areas, and it's often used in combination with a drug applied to the skin. Side effects can include redness and blistering.

Light therapy: This treatment uses narrow band UVB light. You may receive treatment in a doctor's office up to three times a week. And unlike photochemotherapy, it doesn't require psoralen, which simplifies the process.

kmskin Arbutin is a molecule extracted from bearberry and works by inhibiting enzymes that stimulate pigment producing cells (brown spots). It is a gentle and effective way to lighten and brighten the skin. #arbutin #bearberry #nature #naturalingredients #organic #skinlightening #skinbrightening #molecule #tyrosinase #melanocytes #brownspots #melanin #pigment #dermatology #dermaceuticals #dermatologists #dermis #estheticians #aestheticians #losangeles #beverlyhills #malibu #santamonica #ventura #calabasas #westcoast #westlakevillage #Topanga 2mon

thereal_tamarahyah Maybe this is why melinated people are considered emotional and spiritual. Details why soo many feel for their enemies/oppressor. Changing profile pics to flag of countries that DO NOT support them or their plight....! Then again it may say why so many melanin recessive people do NOT mind sacraficing their own plus some for personal pleasure... # facts #melanin #melanocytes #healthandwellness #healthyself #selflove #selfluv #greatinfo #stucklikechuck #whenyouknowbetteryoudobetter #loveconnection #blklove #selfie #readstudylearn #imgoingtobeuponyoutubeforawhile 2mon

verginiamy The mechanism behind #cumulatievepolygenie -----------------------------------
•The actual skin color of different humans is affected by many substances, although the single most important substance is the pigment melanin. #Melanin is produced within the skin in cells called #melanocytes and it is the main determinant of the skin color of darker-skinned humans. The skin color of people with light skin is determined mainly by the bluish-white connective tissue under the dermis and by the hemoglobin circulating in the veins of the dermis.•

hollowbthyname47 #Melanin: When ppl dictate how much melanin they have based off of skin color they're actually talmbout 'melanocytes'. A light skin person could have just as much melanin as the darkest person you've ever met. Melanin is most concentrated in the nervous system. That's why it's important for the sun(fire/kundalini) to hit your melanin (in nervous system) for your soul to glow. It's a process of spiritualizing your melanin (which we all need to do instead of just talking about it). #AsWithinSoWithout #AsAnoveSoBelow #Melanocytes #SpiritualizeSelf #JesusDiedAtAge33 #33Vertebres #Kundalini #CelestialFire 3mon

awakenedmind01 #Skincancer is a disease of the body's skin cells usually as a result of skin cell damage. It begins in the lower layer of the epidermis (the outside layer of the skin). The epidermis contains three different types of cells: squamous cells, basal cells and melanocytes. That’s where the names for the different types of skin cancer come from: basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, and melanoma.

  •   jesse4719 There's Sulfur in white peoples melanin, when the sun heats it to a certain level it changes consistency and chemically it never returns to its original form, causing multiple forms of cancer. @bigbrotherteallmy_t so yea I think your kinda right :) we may get it because of lotions n other products we use, but like u said the sun loves us! 3mon
  •   andicentexposure I wonder what kind of cancers and tumours the Geoengineering (Chemtrails) are causing? Spraying chemicals into the air is disgusting and what goes up, must come down! They've been doing it since the 40s. Technically, it's called "cloudseeding", go to geoengineeringwatch.org to educate on this, we MUST stop them 3w

expert_skin_therapist Did you know despite our varied skin colour, we all have the same number of pigment producing cells? The colour of our skin is determined by the length of the dendrites (the squiggly arms of the melanocyte cell) and the efficiency of their melanosome delivery. It also depends on the 'type' of melanin your skin is programmed to produce- brown based or red based. Red based pigment requires more cellular energy to create (so to all my ginger friends, make sure you're getting an extra dose of anti-oxidants both internally with our diet and topically!) 4mon
