Skinfact 12/100: Nerve Miles

Posted in Skin Facts by Lucy

Astronaut

There are 45 miles of nerves in our skin. At least, that’s the best estimate we could find – scientists are surprisingly quiet on the subject, maybe they haven’t got around to measuring them yet…

Curious about the astronaut? Well, to give you an idea of just how ‘long’ 45 miles is, bear in mind that NASA awards astronaut status for flights above 50 miles!

Our Dermalogica salon skin therapists offer massages to relax your nerves – find out more.
