Functions of the Skin: 1. Regulate body temp. a. Blood vessels When hot, vessels dilate & release heat as blood flow increases
When cold, vessels constrict & heat is conservedb. Sweat – released by glands to cool body
2. Senses – sensory neuronsdetects hot/cold, pressure & environ. conditions 3. Vitamins – when exposed to UV light, makes vitamin D helps absorb calcium
4. Remove Wastes Sweat – releases excess water, salts & urea 5. Protection from… Physical & chemical damage Disease (1st line of defense)

b. Melanin – pigment that…colors the skin protects cells from sun damage more sun exposure makes more melanin
2. Dermis – inner, thicker portion of skinContains: Nerves Blood vessels Hair follicles (warmth & protects) Sweat glands Oil glands – soften skin
3. Subcutaneous Layer (Hypodermis)Mostly fat deposits Absorb impact Retain heat Store food
How Cuts Heal 1) Blood clots & cut closes 2) New cells push damaged cells to surface 3) Scab forms & WBC fight wound infection 4) New cells fill in gap of scab
