Answer:

Dermis(second layer of the skin next to epidermis) is thicker than epidermis.

Explanation:

Because it contains blood vessels, sebaceous glands(secrete oil), sweat glands, hair follicles, nerve endings, smooth muscles(arrector pili muscle) and also other some other layers i.e papillary layer and reticular layer.
