You’ve heard the saying “skin deep” before to imply something isn’t very complex, well turns out the skin is pretty complex. A lot more than we give it credit for. Beauty Flash has created this infographic all about skin facts. While you might know that the skin is the body’s largest organ, did you know that if you stretched out the average skin that it would be 2 square meters? Or that skin accounts for about 15% of your body weight? Didn’t think so. This infographic contains a ton more fun facts like:
- Over 500% of the dust in your house is dead skin
- Your skin renews itself every 28 days (you’re like a snake!)
- Every minute your skin sheds 30,000 dead cells
We’ll leave you with one more fact before we let you read the infographic: Did you know that seat is odorless? What gives it that smell is bacteria! Fascinating, read the rest of the infographic.
