Functions Of The Skin

Functions of the Skin

The skin has several important functions.

  1. It provides a protective barrier, defending the body from all outside environmental influences, including extremes in temperature and exposure to disease organisms such as harmful bacteria and infections, wind and ultraviolet rays from sunshine. 

  2. It acts as a thermostat, retaining heat or cooling you down with sweat.

  3. It acts as a waste disposal. Certain waste is expelled from your body 24 hours a day through your skin in the form of excess water, toxins and carbon dioxide.

  4. It is important in body processes such as respiration, and metabolism.

  5. It provides you with a sense of touch to help you communicate with the outside world.

  6. It responds to sudden changes in emotions.

  7. The skin is the body's main organ of sexual attraction.
