Skin Performing Protective Action
Different layers of skin have a specific function in the body of the individuals and the main function is to differentiate the outer environment from the inner cells of the individual.
Layers of the skin keep the outer pathogen of the environment away from infecting the inner cells of the body which is one of the main functions of the layers of skin. The dead tissues together form the outer layers of the skin so that the damage are not caused in these tissues.
