Weird Things People Do With Skin

14th May 2013

Many people worry about maintaining their skin especially as they get older. Today, anti-wrinkle creams are advertised for those as young as 18, making you aware of ageing before you've even thought about getting old. As your skin is visible to everyone, it is unsurprising that people get self conscious about the effects of ageing.

Not only is your skin the largest organ in the body, it is also the first line of defence against threats such as toxins and bacteria. The skin has many other functions such as insulation, temperature regulation, sensation and synthesis of Vitamin D. Therefore, your skin is very precious and needs to be looked after. Three hundred years ago when people died, that wasn't the end for their skin. It would be used to make things such as book covers. This process is known as anthropodermic bibliopegy. Today, an exhibition at London's Design Museum, explored what it would be like if trains and cars were made of skin. Confirming, that skin is an extraordinary organ...

Of course, most of us just want our skin to look radiant, rejuvenated and be imperfection free. But it is still incredibly important to ensure your skin is maintained properly, and not taken for granted.
