How does Skin Heal?

The skin is an amazing thing, that is the largest organ we have. The skin is there to protect our insides from intruders and anything that wants to get in, but shouldn’t. So when there is a cut the skins goes to work and does everything necessary, as quickly as possible to keep anything from getting in. If you ever notice when you cut yourself and you bleed it’s red, but then it’s starts getting black and gets hard. Well those of platelets, that cause the blood to clot and get hard and scab over. It’s what you would a temporary protection, a barrier until our new skin grows in. Pretty neat isn’t it.You can find more information here:
