Blood vessels help to give the foot its shape and provide important nutrients for cell regeneration and muscular nourishment.
Nerves allow you to feel and help control the movements of your foot.
Skin is the protective covering of your feet. Every square inch of skin contains thousands of cells, sweat glands, oil glands, nerve endings and their own system of blood vessels. Skin is made up of three layers – epidermis, dermis, and subcutaneous – and is constantly regenerating itself.
Nails are epidermis cells that collect, flatten and press tightly together. These compacted cells create thin plates that pile into layers. Your nails can grow from ½-4 inches per year.
