  • On average, a woman’s skin weighs 6.5 pounds, while a man’s skin weighs in at nearly 12 pounds.
  • Skin is thickest on the palms of the hands and feet.
  • Skin is thinnest on eyelids.
  • Skin is composed of three layers (epidermis, dermis, and subcutaneous layer) which protect other organs from damage and infection.
  • On average, skin regenerates itself every 27 days. Regeneration is most intensive during night time hours.
  • Skin spans an average of 21 square feet on the human body.
  • On average, you’ll shed 8.5 pounds of skin cells during a single year.
  • Skin releases up to three gallons of sweat during hot weather.
  • Dry skin is most pronounced during cold weather, when low humidity causes dry air to suck the moisture out of skin.
