Answer:

Yeah it does!

Explanation:

Dermis also known as corium is middle layer of skin that connects the outer layer(epidermis) with the underneath layer(hypodermis).
Being #10-40# times thicker than epidermis, it stores much of the body's water supply. Its own water content is over #60%#. And if related to total water content of the whole body, it contains #20-40%# of water.
