ESSENTIAL OILS AND SKIN CARE
By Kristy R. West, RN, MA
YOUR SKIN
• Considered the largest
organ in the human body.
• Made up of three major
layers - epidermis, dermis,
and hypodermis (also
called the subcutaneous
tissue).
• Protects your inside organs
while keeping infections out
and prevents you from
getting sick.
• Lose about 30,000 to
50,000 dead skin cells
almost every minute
YOUR SKIN
• Sheds a layer of these dead
cells every 24 hours and
renews itself about every 28
days.
• Swells when it absorbs
water.
• Contains a protein called
keratin which is also found
in hair and nails
• Is the thinnest on the eyelid.
• Goose bumps are actually
little pimples that help retain
a layer of warm air over our
body.
YOUR SKIN
• Average adult’s skin spans 21 square feet, weighs nine
pounds, and contains more than 11 miles of blood
vessels.
• Releases as much as three gallons of sweat a day in
hot weather.
