The topic of skin is introduced by viewing a typical collection of bodies on a sun-drenched beach. We are familiar with the sight of skin exposed to the sun, but do we know what is actually happening to the skin surface? Using scanning electron microscopy, we get a bug's-eye view of the living barrier between our body and the outside world. The detailed internal structure of the skin is explored using high-quality computer graphics. The program provides a complete introduction to the following topics: The structure and function of the skin; What sunburn is and how to avoid it; The effects of ultraviolet light on the skin; What is meant by the inflammatory response; How and why the body produces melanin; The causes and treatments of skin cancer
