- Reticular layer
- a the glands that produce a saline solution called sweat.
- b membrane that forms the linings of body cavities open to the exterior (digestive, respiratory, urinary, and reproductive tracts)
- c composed of epithelial tissue and an underlying layer of connective tissue. (also called covering and lining membranes, include the cutaneous membrane, the mucous membranes, and the serous membranes.
- d the deepest skin layer, contains irregularly arranged connective tissue fibers, as well as blood vessels, sweat and oil glands and deep pressure receptors called lamellar corpuscles.
- e the deepest cell layer of the epidermis, lies closest to the dermis and is connected to it along a wavy borderline that resembles corrugated cardboard.

- slightly slanted compound structures. The inner epidermal sheath is composed of epithelial tissue and forms the hair. The outer dermal sheath is actually dermal connective tissue. Dermal region supplies blood vessels to the epidermal portion/reinforces it.
- Cells that produce melanin.
- a clear secretion that is primarily water plus some salts (sodium chloride), vitamin C, traces of metabolic wastes (ammonia, urea, uric acid), and lactic acid(the chemical that accumulates during vigorous muscle activity) sweat is acidic pH from 4-6. Sweat reaches the surface through ducts that opens as a pore.
- the dark pigment synthesized by melanocytes responsible for skin color.
- found all over the body, they produce sweat, important in part of the body's heat-regulating equipment. Supplied with nerve endings that cause them to secrete sweat when the external temperature or body temperature is high.
