anatomytraining The #skin is a vital #organ that covers the entire outside of the #body, forming a protective barrier against #pathogens and injuries from the environment. The skin is the body's largest organ; covering the entire outside of the body, it is about 2 mm thick and weighs approximately six pounds. It shields the body against heat, light, injury, and infection. The skin also helps regulate body temperature, gathers sensory information from the environment, stores water, fat, and vitamin D, and plays a role in the immune system protecting us from disease.
Basically, the skin is comprised of two layers that cover a third fatty layer. These three layers differ in function, thickness, and strength. The outer layer is called the #epidermis; it is a tough protective layer that contains the melanin-producing #melanocytes. The second layer (located under the epidermis) is called the #dermis; it contains nerve endings, sweat glands, oil glands, and hair follicles. Under these two skin layers is a fatty layer of #subcutaneous tissue, known as the #subcutis or #hypodermis. The skin contains many specialized #cells and structures: #Anatomy #AnatomyTraining #Fitfam #Train #HumanBody #layers #Artery #nerves #tissue #health #stratum #transmit #sensation #paciniancorpuscle #immunesystem #fat #texture #muscle #bloodvessels

david_a_c_bongiorno Vitiligo is a skin pigmentation disorder where melanocytes in the skin are destroyed leaving white patches. Michael Jackson is probably the most famous person to have had this blotchy condition. It is painless. But I need to stay out of the sun to avoid my white patches being burned because that hurts. So whenever I frequent tropical holiday spots, I am smothered from head to toe in sunblock and found in shady spots like a pasty Pommy. Haha!

derrtyd29 This made me smile.... Its a beautiful day when women of color finally start seeing that they are the epitome of beauty... For far too long have they accepted the European mindset that our features weren't desirable.... Your large lips, wide noses, textured hair, curves of divinity, and beautiful multi toned brown skin were shunned because you were resented for being blessed with them. The weave, relaxers, makeup were to make you look more like them... When in reality they are paying ( tanning, lip injections, but implants,etc) to look more like you! I pray it's not just a fashion statement, or a fad..... I would love to see our culture embrace themselves. "You can't fix what God's already put his paintbrush on." " LOVE YOURS"-J.

bibawesthollywood The price of beauty: after a needling session. A bad skin day where you want to hide from the world or a great way to restore collagen and melanocytes naturally while preventing surgeries? You decide if it's worth it Xx #day2 #nofilter #microneedling #mesopen #collagen #melanocytes #skin #beauty #healthyskin #glow #priceofbeauty #skincare #esthetician #facialist #facial #biba #bibawesthollywood 1mon

cccrbaemp Tip no sólo para #derma, sino también para nuestro #autoexamen, para enseñarle a nuestra familia y nuestras amistades: "ABCD" de los lunares sospechosos de melanoma. Se le puede agregar una E de Evolución, es decir si el lunar ha cambiado en cualquier aspecto desde la primera vez que lo notó #datitos #CCCRBAEMP.
