Did you know that your skin sheds dead skin cells on a daily basis? In fact, even while you sleep, Mother nature is doing her job by making sure your skin exfoliates itself without your help.
- Cells from the dermis age as they move upwards.
- By the time they reach the surface, they are dead and are shed off.
- These dead cells, removed from the epiidermis, are extremely tiny and not visible to the naked eye.
- The normal cycle is about six to eight weeks.
- Stress, pollution and UV rays however tend to slow down epidermal turnover time.
