How to use "Cutaneous" in context?

The skin is the largest and most conspicuous organ of the body and is responsible for protection from the external environment and maintenance of body temperature. The skin is also the site of several critical functions, including sensing touch, temperature, pressure, and pain. It consists of three layers: the outer layer, the epidermis, and the dermis. The cells in the skin are predominantly cuboidal, but there are also squamous cells. The basement membrane delimits the subcutaneous fat and is continuous with the dermis. The mechanical properties of skin are determined by the collagen fibres and elastin filaments.
