The statement that explains why the muscle cells and the cells of the skin does not look and act the same is this: THE GENES IN EACH CELL TYPE ARE EXPRESSED in a DIFFERENT way. All cells of the human body has the same set of genes, this is due to that, all the cells in the body originated from a single fertilized egg. Although all body cells have the same origin, are different from each other due to that, the cells use the same set of genes differently.
