Lupita Nyong’o Loves Her Skin – Sesame Street

Ticklish, smooth, rough, elastic, protective, full of nerve endings to feel different textures and energies, and it comes in so many beautiful shades and colors… Elmo and his good friend Lupita Nyong’o talk about skin in this wonderful new clip from Sesame Street.

In the archives: more Sesame Street, including science experiments with Grover! Plus, watch more about touch, skin, the human body, and why wearing sunscreen is so very important — how the sun sees our skin.
