What are the skin conditions peculiar to Japanese people?
People born and raised in Japan have a thin stratum corneum, well-developed sebaceous glands, and a thick dermis.
The reason is the climate of Japan.
Japan has four distinct seasons.
The temperature and humidity vary greatly depending on the four seasons, and the sebaceous glands develop due to the hot and humid seasons such as the rainy season and summer.
It thickens the dermis layer where the sebaceous glands are located.
And the stratum corneum tends to be thin to facilitate water evaporation.
In addition, the stratum corneum is thinner than Caucasian people, probably because the amount of ultraviolet rays is not so high compared to other countries, so the water retention capacity is lower.
