    • Skin is responsible for 15% of your body weight.
    • There are two types of skin: hairy and glabrous.
    • There are three layers: Epidermis, Dermis and Subcutis.
    • The skin on your eyelids is just 0.2mm thick.
    • The thickest skin is on the soles of your feet, at 1.4mm.

    Body hair facts:
