Human skin has an enormous significance for our general well-being. It is a well-known fact that skin is a protective tissue, first to fight against bacteria and viruses. Skin also helps in keeping bodily fluids in balance, and in regulating the body temperature as well. It is sensitive and prone to external factors, from bad eating habits to excessive sun exposure, resulting in visual body marks and hence accelerating the aging process.
Human skin is the largest visible organ of the body, covering almost two square meters and one sixth of the total body mass. It has a dynamic function, which means it is constantly changing and regenerating itself.
