Do You Know Why Your Fingers Wrinkle in Water?

I want to tell you a story about this.

When I and my sister were little girls, we loved to play in the water. It was a process to call us out of the water. Our mother used to promise a lot to make us come out.

You know how kids are. You need to tell them whatever they want to hear just to make them do something you want.

Later on, we agreed to come out of the water as soon as we see our fingers wrinkle.

Now, back to reality.

Things You Didn’t Know

Our body is the temple that’s equipped with a particular defense mechanism. It’s complex and fascinating at the same time.

Every action from sneezing, yawning, or something else is a way of protecting us from harm.

All of you experienced fingers wrinkle at least once in your lifetime. Have you ever why does it happen?

The Answer:

It’s a way of your body to protect you from accidents.
