  • 1. *INTERGUMENTARY SYSTEM*THE BODY’S BIGGEST ORGANSKIN!!!
    OlevierBrunson
  • 2. The skin Protects the body and guards it from harmful intruders like viruses and bacteria.
    The skin is made up of three layers
    LAYER ONE--Epidermis
    The epidermis contains 5 layers-
    1)stratum basale
    2) stratum spinosum
    3)stratum granulosum
    4)stratum licidum
    5)stratum corneum
    The epidermis is the outer layer of skin
  • 3. LAYER TWO--DERMIS
    The dermis contains nerve endings, blood vessels, oil glands, and sweat glands.
    The dermis is home to the oil glands, too.
    The dermis is composed
    of three types of tissue
    that are present
    throughout - not in layers.
    The types of tissue are:
    collagen
    elastic tissue
    reticular fibers
  • 4. LAYER THREE- SUBCUTANEOUS
    * The subcutaneous is made mostly of fat and helps your body stay warm and absorb shock
    *The subcutaneous layer also helps hold your skin to all the tissues underneath it.
    *The subcutaneous is where you'll find the start of hair
  • 5. A hair follicle is a part of the skin that grows hair by packing old cellstogether.
    *The average person has 5 million hairs of which 100,000 - 150,000 are on the head
  • 6. SKIN
    It is an organ for sensation:
    *Touch
    *Pain
    *Pressure
    Your skin can also help if you're feeling too hot or too cold.
  • 7. SKIN COLOR~PIGMENT
    MELANIN
    Skin color is due to melanin, a pigment produced in the epidermis to protect us from the sun's potentially cancer-causing ultraviolet rays
    Dark-skinned people have more melanin than light- skinned people
    Melanin is also found in hair
    Freckles, which occur in people of all races, are small, concentrated areas of increased melanin production
    Melanin also gives color to the iris of the eye
