Skin is the largest organ in the body. The skin of a average adult weighs 8-10lbs and covers an area of about 22 square feet. Every inch of skin contains:
650 sweat glands
15 ft blood vessels
12 ft nerves
millions of cells
1,300 nerve endings
155 pressure receptors
100 oil glands
12 cold and heat receptors
6 main functions of the skin are protection, sensation, heat regulation, excretion, secretion, and absorption. The first to develop is touch. A incredible feature of the skin is it's ability to heal itself.
