Skin’s top layer is a prototypical “squamous epithelium”: it contains layers of densely packed epithelial cells that form continuous sheets. The sheets stack up on top of each other, and then the whole stack sits on a basement membrane, which supports the epithelial and serves as a source of new cells for growth and regeneration. Epithelia are classified by the shape of the top cells. For the skin epidermis, these cells have a “polygon” shape when viewed from above.
