4 factors that need to be controlled by homeostasis:
Ion Levels: Water Levels: Temperature levels: Blood Sugar Levels:
Ions are salts Control of this is Known as Sugar is used in

Structure of Skin
Erector Muscles: Control direction of
hair- raised or flat?
Sweat Glands: Produce sweat
Thermoreceptors: Nerve endings that
detect changes in (external) temperature
Sebaceous Gland: Produces a grease
called sebum
Sebum: Bacteria on the skin feed on the
sebum, rather than the skin tissue which
happens when we die as we do not
produce any more sebum, so they feed
on our skin tissues, thus, we decay.…read more
