This illustration shows a section through the skin. From bottom to top, you can see first a part of a muscle and the adjacent fascia. Then, the subcutis which contains numerous vessels (here e.g. veins in blue or arteries in red) and is mostly made up out of connective and lipid tissue (yellow) follows. Green sweat glands are scattered. Next, the dermis which contain some arteries, veins and lymphatic vessels (light ducts), glands, nerve endings as well as a hair root with its muscle and sebaceous gland (top left) follows. The epidermis comes next with its stratum germinativum (pink) which contains numerous melanocytes (black, branched) and the stratum corneum which is the corneal skin made up of nucleus-less cells.
