What You Should Know About Skin Cell Turnover Rate
Skin cell turnover rate is the rate at which the skin produces new cells.  These new cells travel from the lowest layer of the epidermis (stratum basale) to the top layer, die, and are shed off to reveal healthier, younger, glowing skin.  As we age, our cell renewal factor slows down, which leads to an unnecessary buildup of dead skin.  We need to help the skin get rid of this accumulated dead skin through exfoliation.  Exfoliation will eliminate clogged pores and help beneficial cosmetic skin care ingredients to penetrate the skin.  Basically, as we age, exfoliation becomes more essential in our skin care routine.  When you learn the average rate of skin cell turnover, you will know how often you need to exfoliate.  The older you are, the more exfoliation you need.
