  • SkinEpidermis- The epidermis is the outermost layer of skin and it contains a lower layer of rapidly dividing cells that push cells upward as they die, and they begin to produce keratin forming the exposed layer of skin.Dermis-The dermis is the inner middle layer of skin that contains collagen fibers, blood vessels, nerve endings, glands, sensory receptors, smooth muscles, and hair follicles. Hypodermis- The Hypodermis is a subcutaneous layer of fat and loose connective tissue which helps to insulate the body.

  • NailsNail Root- this is an area of rapidly diving cells near the tip of the nails on the toes and fingers.Keratin in Nails-The keratin in nails is produced in the cells of the nail root and makes the nails strong, waterproof, and plate-like.

  • HairHair Follicles- these are tube-like pockets of epidermal cells that make up hair and they are located in the dermis.Keratin- Keratin is in all the dead cells of hair, making it flexible and strong.

  • GlandsSweat Glands- Sweat glands secrete sweat which includes excess salt and water, and wastes from blood cells. By secreting sweat, the body loses heat.Sebaceous Glands- Sebaceous Glands secrete sebum, which spreads across the surface of the skin and helps the epidermis stay waterproof and flexible.
