SKIN is the largest organ of our body performing dual functions; while skin is the sensory organ of touch, it also provides a protective cover to the internal tissues and organs.Skin has three layers the outer epidermis which provides a water proof protective barrier and creates the skin tone; the middle dermis which is made up of thick connective tissue, sweat glands and hair follicles and the inner most hypodermis which contains fat and connective tissue. The anatomy and surgery exponent Sushrutha Acarya explains seven layers of the skin each nourishing the layer above it and each with a distinct function of its own.
