Various routes of entry into the skin exist, both through the SC as well as eccrine and transfollicular shunt routes. While these shunt routes may comprise only 0.1% of the skin surface, some chemicals that cannot penetrate the SC have penetrated via these routes. As a consequence, transfollicular research is being revived.

This review examines hormetic effects of various agents on skin biology. Recognition of this emerging biological phenomenon in dermatology could lead to markedly improved integrative assessments of animal/human skin responses to toxic substances and pharmacological agents, as well as endogenous agonists.
