How much dead skin is actually necessary?

Is dead skin not also somehow a protection?

We often hear this question, along with the much-used argument that dead skin is there for protection, and is therefore necessary. We have explained here what cause the callus formation has on the feet, for example. And it can also not be completely dismissed from the hand that dead skin in a certain way protects. In some places, there is even the view that the body actively, as it were in response to external circumstances, consciously dead skin produces.

Intentional protective function?

We see it differently! We do not completely agree with this view. When the body dead skin quasi consciously produces them as protection, shouldn't it also cause their degradation when the measure is full?

In fact, too much can dead skin can also lead to some problems. For example, it can tear down to the subcutis, causing unwanted injuries and pain here. It can harbor germs and bacteria, which often results in unpleasant odors.

We do not believe in the smart protective function theory of the body. That is why we also believe that the body just does not "know" how much dead skin is necessary.

It is probably more likely that the basic metabolic function, i.e. the emergence of dead skin, by external influences, such as herewhich then leads to the fact that one has a benefit on the one hand (let's take the protective function), but also impairments can be the consequence.

Not even the question whether at all dead skin necessary, can be answered with certainty from our point of view. Children, for example, tend not to have any problems with dead skinfor example on the feet. Analogous to the protective function theory of the body, it would therefore leave these children without protection. But he does not, because young people, as we know, get along quite well without dead skin without it. Or is it a question of weight? From how much KG is dead skin necessary?

Let's leave that.

Everyone can make this decision for themselves!

Everyone can decide that for themselves. One finds dead skin helpful, for example, because he walks a lot barefoot on natural ground, the other sees the aesthetic aspect in the foreground, finds it simply unsightly when the most expensive women's sandal is complemented by cracked heels decorative.

However, we are sure about one thing. When the dead skin makes problems, for example, because it causes pain, if you have cracked heels, possibly all the way into the subcutis, if your feet stink because the dead skin is full of foul-smelling bacteria, and this circumstance cannot be remedied even by extensive bathing, then in any case you can be sure that you will have more dead skin than is necessary. And then could be the removal of dead skin or a part of it could be considered.
