Skin Facts And Weird Stuff

Posted on September 13, 2011 | in Beauty & Fashion | by

The skin is the largest organ in the human body.  And your skin is more than just something that can be ‘beautified’!  The skin actually plays a big role in people’s health in general as well as their happiness.  If you have a problem with your skin, it can affect your whole life. In this article I’d like to discuss some facts about your skin, some of which you might not even know!

Fact One:  The Skin Is Huge

Yes, I already mentioned this one.  The skin is the largest organ in your whole body.  It has three major layers, which are the epidermis, the dermis, and the hypodermis.  Check out the Face Fitness Center for more info on this.

Fact Two:  You Lose Alot

On average it takes about 60 days for skin cells to grow and then finally shed themselves, so you skin actually “lives” for 2 months.  The average person sheds a pound and a half of skin every sing year!

Fact Three:  It’s Heavy Too!

The average person has skin that weights about seven pounds!  On average it also makes up about fifteen percent of your body weight overall.

Fact Four:  Many, Many Cells

There are about three hundred million cells in all of your skin.  And for every square inch of your skin, you have about 100 sweat glands and ten hairs.

Fact Five:  Keep In The Heat

When you are cold, you get goose bumps.  What they actually do is narrow your blood vessels, and they keep the warm blood away from the surface of the skin.
