The Skin

  • The skin is the largest organ of the human being.
  • It contains many specialized cells and structures. It serves as a protective barrier, keeping out environmental damage and bacterias,protecting us from excessive moisture loss. The daily loss of water without the skin would be 23 litres!
  • The skin is also concerned with regulating our body temperature in order for our body to function effectively.
  • It gathers sensory information from the environment, is waterproof and also plays a role in the function of the immune system, protecting us from disease.
  • Finally it also keeps all our organs in place.

The skin consists of 3 layers:

  1. The Epidermis
  2. The Dermis
  3. The subcutaneous layer
