Facts about the skin

Daily Trust - - HEALTH -

The skin weighs about 12-15% of the to­tal body heav­i­ness.

The nor­mal per­son has 21sq ft of skin and about 300 mil­lion skin cells.

The skin dis­charges as much as 3 gal­lons of sweat a day in burn­ing weather.

A large quan­tity of the dirt in the home is dead skin. The skin drops up to 30,000-40,000 dead skin each minute of the day which is equal to 4kg of skin every year.

The skin on the mouth is 200 times more re­spon­sive than the fin­ger­tips.
