5:49 am
then we looked at our skin through a magnifying glass. it makes things look bigger. we could see all sorts of things we never noticed before. there was hair growing out of our skin, and the fronts of our arms had more hair than the back of our arms, but the palms of our hands didn't have any hair at all, but they had lots of lines. so did the tips of our fingers. some parts of our skin were smooth like our cheeks. some parts were real wrinkly like our knuckles and elbows. then we ran some water on our arms to see what our skin looked like when it was wet. the water didn't soak in. it just rolled right off. we could see how our skin protects our bodies.
5:50 am
so even though everybody's skin looked different up close, our skin wasn't really very different at all. - wow! elaine learned a lot about skin, but elmo still wants to find out more, don't you? how can we find out even more? hmm. ha ha ha! boy. elmo almost jumped out of his skin, tv. oh. good idea. we can watch the all about skin channel on tv. now turn yourself on, tv. thank you. - welcome to the all about skin channel. when it comes to skin, we've got you covered, and now the story of the girl who loved her skin. - once a upon a time, there was a girl who loved her skin. - i love my skin.
5:51 am
- she loved it so much that she took very good care of it. when her skin got dirty, she washed it. - scrub-a-dub-dub. - when her skin was out in the sun, she put sunscreen on to protect it. - rub-a-rub-rub. huh? - when her skin was cold, it got goose bumps, so she put on more clothes to warm her skin. - ahh. - and when her skin got hot, it sweated to help cool her off. - whew! ahh. - when she went roller skating, she protected her skin with special padding, but one day, she fell down and hurt her skin anyway. - oh, no. i got a booboo on my skin. - the girl's mother loved her skin, too, and knew just what to do. she washed the booboo, put ointment on it, and covered it up with a bandage
5:52 am
to keep it clean. - thanks, mom. my skin feels better already. - and every day, the girl's skin felt better and better until one day the booboo was gone. her skin had healed itself. - wow! now i really, really love my skin. - and from then on, the girl who loved her skin-- - really, really loved! - the girl who really, really loved her skin took really, really good care of it, especially when roller skating. - hey. you got to love the skin you're in.
