Fun Facts About Skin

Did you know that:
  • The skin is the largest organ in the body & contributes 12-15 percent of total body weight.
  • The average human being has 21 square feet of skin and about 300 million skin cells.
  • The skin is constantly renewing itself from the bottom up and takes 52 to 77 days to shed cells.
  • By the age of 70, the average person will have lost 105 pounds of skin.
  • The skin sheds 50,000 cells every minute.
  • Skin emits up to 3 gallons of sweat per day.
  • Each half-inch square of skin has approximately 10 hairs, 15 sebaceous glands, 100 sweat glands, and 3.2 feet of tiny blood vessels.
These facts should make us more conscious of what we apply on our skin on daily basis.
