Friends when you spent more than half an hour in water while bathing or swimming, you notice that skin of your finger tips or toes get wrinkled. Have you ever thought what’s the reason behind it?
Reason lies in your palm. Your palm does not have hairs, so no sebum is produced, so water can not be repelled.
