The integumentary system works to waterproof, cushion and protect the body from infection, according to the National Institutes of Health. Most skin is waterproof because of keratin, a fibrous protein, and it also is made up of water, other proteins, lipids and different minerals and chemicals.

Skin excretes wastes, regulates temperature and prevents dehydration by controlling the level of perspiration. It also houses sensory receptors that detect pain, sensation and pressure.

The skin is also the body's initial defense against bacteria, viruses and other microbes. Skin and hair provide protection from harmful ultraviolet radiation, and the skin guards against sunburn by secreting melanin, according to the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD). Human skin color is determined by the interaction of melanin, carotene and hemoglobin.

Storage of water, fat, glucose and vitamin D is also a function of the integumentary system, according to the AAD.
