Skin Fact!

The dermis (a skin layer) contains about: (per inch of skin)

  • 650 sweat glands
  • 20 blood vessels
  • more than 1,000 nerve endings

This is where your body produces and releases sweat through your pores (i.e. sweat glands), where hair follicles grow and where your nerve endings are.
