Cell turnover is the key to youthful skin

6 Nov 2017

Having a high cell turnover is the key to youthful skin.

 

Your skin goes through a renewal process whereby dead cells on the surface of skin are replaced by the upward push of newer cells.

 

Skin cell turnover is vital for skin health and for maintaining its youthfulness. When dead skin cells pile up on the epidermis, pores can get clogged to cause infection and acne. Overtime, this can also lead to dullness and uneven complexion.

 

However, our skin cell renewal slows down drastically as we age. Among infants, this process takes place every two weeks as compared to 30 - 40days in adults. Once we hit 50 years old, this process may take up to 90 days! While signs may be less obvious at the start, your skin’s metabolism eventually goes downhill quite drastically.

 

As skin’s metabolism slows down, its ability to regenerate and repair is affected. Skin becomes more susceptible towards external aggressors and responds less favourably towards skincare. This causes fine lines, wrinkles, loose skin, pigmentation and blemishes.

 

Hence, maintaining a high cell turnover is the key to younger skin. It keeps cells plumped and supple for hydrated, radiant complexion. In addition, it can also strengthen the skin barrier to fight against external stress. Healthy cells also maintain the pH balance to ensure beautiful skin.

 

One effective way to boost cell renewal is through exfoliation.

 

At Elements Wellness Group, we provide high quality peels that could gently slough away dead skin cells while stimulating skin rebirth and collagen production. It can be used to treat acne, fine lines and pigmentation.
