The integumentary system is made up of the skin and its appendages. It protects the body from various kinds of damage, such as loss of water or damages from outside. In humans the integumentary system includes skin, hair and nails. It has a variety of additional functions; it may serve to waterproof, and protect the deeper tissues, excrete wastes, and regulate body temperature, and is the attachment site for sensory receptors to detect pain, sensation, pressure, and temperature. Also, with significant exposure to sunlight, the integumentary system also provides for vitamin D synthesis. As the integumentary system is the bodies first layer of defense against illness, organisms and infection if compromised serious injury, blood loss and death can occur.
