The thickest skin in your body can be found on your feet.

Most of your skin is 2 to 3 mm thick but the skin on your feet can be up to 4 mm thick, especially on your heels. This thickness prevents the veins and bones in your feet from getting damaged even when you walk more than 5,000 steps per day.
