Skin is the largest, and the most visible organ of the body. It protects the body from the environment, regulates temperature, and wards off infections. The skin is also one of the most important components of an individual's physical appearance. This is why individuals with skin disorders can experience considerable psycho-social rejection, leading to severe social impact on their lives.
Because skin is an external organ it is exposed to multiple harmful substances in the environment. Chronic sun damage can lead to aging appearance of the skin and development of skin cancers, which is the most common form of cancer in humans. Skin can also show signs of internal diseases such as internal cancers, kidney or liver problems.
