why are your hands and feet different skin colors?


I mean why is the skin on top the same skin you have throughout your body but why is the underside a clear/ light and seemingly different skin.

The function of the palm/sole is to tackle a more hard-wearing environment. Imagine you had thinner skin on those parts, it would tear and be sore so much more easily. It’s something that I imagine has adapted with evolution to respond to the way we naturally use these parts of our body.
