  3. 3. Function Of Skin<br />Covers the internal structures of the body<br />protects the body from trauma and bacteria.<br />Prevents the lost of water and electrolytes.<br />Senses temperture, pain, touch , pressure.<br />Regulates body temperture through sweat production and evaporation.<br />Synthesize Vitamin D<br />Promote wound repair<br />
  4. 4. Skin Cell<br />
  5. 5. 3 Layers Of The Skin<br />Epidermis- is the thin, outer layer membrane layer.<br />Dermis- is the middle, firous connective tissue layer.<br />Subcutaneous- is the innermost layer containing fatty tissues.<br />
  6. 6. Epidermis<br />The epidermis is composed of Stratified Squamous Epithelium. This type of tissue consist of:<br />Flat scale-like cells, of dead cells.<br />Overlapping layers of Strata.<br />Does not have blood supply or any connective tissue.<br />Nourishment is through deeper layers of skin.<br />
  7. 7. Dermis<br />The dermis is also referred as the Corium, is the middle layer of the skin. The dermis is good living tissue with blood supply.

  9. 9. Deep Layers Of Skin<br />Basal layer- cells in layers continually grows and multiply.<br />Keratin- protein cells overlapping allowing skin to act as a effective barrier to infection, making it waterproof.<br />Melanocyte- a special cell which produce black pigment to the skin. ( Melanin)<br />
