Touch and See! This is How Our Skin Works
The human body’s largest organ has a surface area of about two square metres. On every square centimetre, there are up to 40 nerve endings and 200 tactile corpuscles that convey touch, cold or warmth to the brain as signals.
Our Finger Tips Achieve the Most
The finger tips have approximately three times as many tactile corpuscles as the rest of our skin and react to the smallest sensations and feelings. This is how we can explain why touching others can make us feel good.
These reactions are balanced out by touching, because positive and stress-reducing emotions are passed to the brain via the skin’s receptors. To ensure that the skin can perform these amazing achievements, it must, of course, be adequately cared for.
It is therefore essential to moisturise daily, so that your skin remains smooth and receptive to touch. Try NIVEA’s Express Hydration Body Lotion to add more moisture to your skin.
