Skin is our heaviest and largest organ making up roughly one seventh of our overall body weight. This of course ultimately depends on an individual’s height and body mass. But, generally speaking, it can weigh anywhere between 7 and 22 pounds, and may have a surface area spanning between 1 and 2 square meters. Understanding how skin is structured, what your personal skin type is, and what it requires to be healthy, are the main ways to ensure you look your best for as long as possible.
Examining someone’s skin can reveal a lot about his or her health and lifestyle. For example, someone who spends a lot of unprotected time in the sun will have more sunspots, wrinkles, and dry patches than someone who uses sunscreen. Similarly, someone who drinks a lot of water, gets plenty of sleep, and engages in the simplest form of skincare will look significantly younger and healthier than someone who drinks sugary drinks, suffers from insomnia, and forgoes skincare regiments altogether.
