Skin is the largest organ of the human body.
The skin of an adult weighs about 3 kg or twice as much as his brain.
If the skin of an adult is peeled off and spread out,it would cover araound 5.4sq metres.
Our psyche and skin are inextricably linked.The mind exerts a profound effect on the skin and in reverse diseased skin has a deep effect on the mind.
The skin and the mind evolve from the same tissue.

Normal healthy skin is made up of 2 layers.The epidermis,waterproof layer on the top
and dermis,which contains more complex structureslike the hair follicles,sweat glands and sebaceous glands that produce oils.
A layer of dead cells constitutes the outer section of our skin.These dead cells are constantly shed from the skin surface.
