The skin is the most intriguing organs of the body. It performs many important functions and highly efficient. It is essentially a covering, but does much more than merely hold us together. It also eliminates waste matter and regulates & maintains body temperature. It reflects the state of our internal health and our emotions so faithfully. Depending on the part it covers & the function is expected to perform, the thickness & sensitivity of the skin varies. The skin of the scalp, palm & sole is thick, but the skin on face, lips & genital organs is thin, sensitive and soft.
This living, breathing organs is extremely tough & yet, so soft, resilient and flexible.
Broadly speaking, the skin has two layers—–the epidermis, which is most superficial layer & the dermis or inner layer.
Distributed between these two layers is complex system of nerves, blood vessels, oil glands, sweat glands, sensory cells, sensory nerve endings, hair follicles. Sensations, pressure & every type’s pain are promptly conveyed by the skin’s system of nerves.
So friend we will talk about epidermis in my next post……be happy n enjoy..
