Does the function of skin help humans survive?

by Joseph

Do you ever think about how important the functions of skin are? Don’t take your skin for granted. Research and study how important the functions of skin are.  One function of skin is protection. Skin can protect humans from various injuries.  Injuries like infections on your bones. If we didn’t have skin it would be more likely to get infection on you bones. Another function of skin is vitamin D. Vitamin d helps your skin stay healthy while you’re young and when you get older. But you have to use vitamin D in order to keep your healthy skin. This involves lotion of some sort, Vaseline, and sunscreen. These protection measures can help your skin stay healthy and possibly let you live longer. Lastly don’t hesitate to go to a dermatologist and get your body checked any changes on or in your skin.
