Skin

The skin is divided into two main layers- the epidermis and the dermis. The epidermis is further divided into various layers. The germinal layer produces cells for zones above it. But the basal layer is the most internal part of the dermis. Dermal papillae project as groove at the dermo-epidermal junction. The subcutaneous layer of skin contains fat cells or adipocytes.

Hair follicles are also seen in the dermis.
