It has a complex network of nerve cells that detect change in temperature. On a cold day therefore, the nerves pick up changes in temperature and send the signal to the brain which interprets it and in turn causes the muscles of the hair to contract causing the hair to stand up, trapping heat underneath. Blood vessels beneath the skin also constrict and dilate to regulate temperature. These reasons also account for the skin being one of the most important organs on homeostasis.

The skin's immense blood supply helps regulate temperature: dilated vessels allow for heat loss, while constricted vessels retain heat. The skin regulates body temperature with its blood supply
