Diagram of skin to label

In a picture of a diagram of skin to label, there are these parts:

  1. Epidermis: The outermost layer of the skin. It consists of several layers of cells, including keratinocytes, melanocytes, and Langerhans cells. The epidermis provides a barrier to protect the body from the external environment, and it also helps regulate body temperature and hydration.

  2. Dermis: The second layer of the skin, beneath the epidermis. It contains blood vessels, nerve endings, sweat glands, and sebaceous glands. The dermis also contains collagen and elastin fibers, which give the skin its strength and elasticity.

  3. Subcutaneous tissue: The innermost layer of the skin, also known as the hypodermis. It consists of fat cells and connective tissue, and it helps to cushion and protect the body.

  4. Hair follicle: A small tube-like structure that grows hair from the base of the follicle. The hair follicle is surrounded by the dermis and the epidermis.

  5. Sebaceous gland: A gland that produces sebum, an oily substance that helps keep the skin and hair moisturized. Sebaceous glands are found throughout the body, but they are most numerous on the face and scalp.

  6. Sweat gland: A gland that produces sweat, a watery substance that helps regulate body temperature. Sweat glands are found all over the body, but they are most numerous on the palms of the hands, soles of the feet, and forehead.

  7. Nerve ending: A sensory receptor that detects stimuli, such as temperature, pain, and touch. Nerve endings are found throughout the skin, and they transmit information to the brain through the nervous system.

  8. Blood vessel: A tube-like structure that carries blood to and from the heart. Blood vessels are found throughout the skin, and they help to nourish and oxygenate the skin cells.

  9. Melanocyte: A type of skin cell that produces the pigment melanin, which gives color to the skin, hair, and eyes. Melanocytes are found in the epidermis and are responsible for tanning and protecting the skin from the harmful effects of UV radiation.

  10. Langerhans cell: A type of immune cell that is found in the epidermis. Langerhans cells help to protect the body from infection and disease by detecting and eliminating foreign substances.
