Your Skin and Hair

You have skin everywhere on your body. Your skin helps you to touch things. It helps you to know when things are hot or cold. Skin stops dirt getting into your body. It stops water getting into your body when it’s rainy and when you swim.

Hair grows out of your skin. Hair on your arms and legs stands up when you’re cold. This stops your body getting too cold. Your skin makes sweat when you’re hot. This stops your body getting too hot.

Protect your body! Wash every day, so you can get dirt and sweat off your skin and hair.
