It's Skin!

What Is It?

It's not oatmeal; this is your skin — your epidermis, to be exact. It's been magnified 650 times, so you can see the dead skin cells that fall off as new cells grow.

Why Should You Care?

Without your skin, your muscles would be showing and some of your internal organs would spill out. How embarrassing!
