The Outer Limits: Epidermis

The Outer Limits: Epidermis

The outermost layer of skin is called the epidermis. The epidermis is very active: It creates a total new cell population every 28 days, and one complete layer of cells falls off into the environment every day. The facial layer lies below the epidermis. All together, the skin is 14 layers thick. Each cell that falls off is replaced by another. Most of the dust on your furniture is skin that has shed off.
