The term breathing implies that air is transmitted or introduced into the body through the skin or that your body will not function properly if the pores are clogged. One ad even goes as far as to suggest that you are putting your skin at risk by not allowing it to breath. Now in all fairness, there is a small mammal, a species of mouse, that does literally breathe through the skin but for the rest of us skin is a rather impervious, waterproof organ.
