First of all, what is skin renewal you ask? You may be surprised to learn that your skin is both the largest and fastest growing organ in your body. The reason it’s the fastest growing organ is because it has the amazing ability to completely renew itself every 28 days (give or take). This is the process of a skin cell being produced at the lowest part of our epidermis and the approximate 28 day journey this cell makes up through the layers of the epidermis until it reaches the surface of our skin and we naturally shed it off.
So how can skin renewal affect our complexion? Interestingly, as we age, our skin renewal will slow down in conjunction with the deceleration of our metabolism.
The slowing of skin renewal can result in:
If any of these skin changes sound familiar to you, it is possible your body and skin is simply renewing itself more slowly than what it did in previous years.
So we know age can determine how quickly our skin is renewing itself, however the timelines will most likely come as a shock to many of you, for example:
Wow, compare a baby to an individual over 50, the baby will renew their skin every two weeks, whereas a mature individual may take up to 12 weeks for the same process to occur. That is a staggering difference. This is why a baby’s skin is always so soft, smooth and clear, not to mention fast healing too. A baby’s skin does not have the opportunity to be exposed to the environmental elements for long, like an adults skin does, effectively mitigating the ‘wear and tear’ affect.
It’s not age alone that dictates how fast or slow our skin will renew itself, there are other factors at play here, for example:
There are 3 simple steps you can take to support skin renewal at any age:
