Skin Complexity

<b>Skin Complexity
Caring for the largest organ of the body requires great care when you consider its complex structure.

One square inch of skin contains 65 hairs; 95 - 100 sebaceous glands; 78 yards of nerves; 19 yards of blood vessels; 650 sweat glands; 9,500,000 cells; 1,300 nerve endings to record pain; 19,500 sensory cells at the ends of nerve fibers; 78 sensory apparatuses for heat; 13 sensory apparatuses for cold; and 160 - 165 pressure apparatuses for the perception of tactile stimuli.
