Anatomy of the skin


Skin (1926)

This silent film from 1926 takes us through the basic physiology of the human skin, combining anatomical education and basic healthcare advice. We see the epidermis and its replacement, the structure of the underlying dermis, nails, sweat glands and hair follicles.
