What you need to know about your skin cell renewal
Covering our entire body, the skin regenerate is an organ in constant renewal. Every day, our cells die to make room for new ones. Our skin uses its own cell regeneration mechanism. In this way, the cells are renewed at the base of our epidermis to evolve to the surface. Subsequently, they end their life by dying to constitute the stratum corneum , which can reach up to 75% of the thickness of our skin. Thus, the growth of the cells of our skin comes down to moving between the different layers that make up this one to reach the surface and harden. Know that our skin is able to eliminate dead cells by reducing them to small pieces of dead skin called scales. Do not worry! They are invisible and will come off naturally from your epidermis through sweat and sebum. However, you will be able to notice them easily if your skin is facing attacks from the external environment, such as sunburn, allergies, irritants, etc.
The life cycle of a skin cell
Do you know how many skin cells you lose every day? This is 500 million, or between 0.03g and 0.09g of skin per hour . How long do they take to regenerate? Considering that all bodies are different, the lifespan of a cell varies from person to person. This is why it takes between 3 to 4 weeks, or about 28 days, for so-called healthy growth. However, over the years, the skin ages, thus slowing down the cell renewal process. Because of this, it could take longer than 30 days for your cells to renew themselves. Note that your lifestyle habits (consumption of alcohol, tobacco, diet low in nutrients and others) can also slow down the regeneration of your cells by causing premature aging of your skin.

Understanding how the regeneration of our skin works is good, but knowing its benefits is even better! When our skin cells are able to regenerate in time, our skin looks firmer, brighter and smoother.
Consequently, it slows down the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, while creating a protective, solid and effective barrier against external aggressions. Nothing better than having a healthy and regenerated epidermis to face the sun, the cold, pollution, and all the pangs of everyday life! On the contrary, without the regeneration of your skin cells, a dull and rough complexion awaits you! Deprived of the ability to renew themselves, your cells accumulate on the surface of your skin, including toxins, which has the effect of causing certain skin problems: dryness, hyperpigmentation, acne and others. Aging also slows down cell regeneration, because cells no longer regulate themselves as effectively, leading to dehydration. Thereby, wrinkles and fine lines appear gradually. So prevention is better than cure, as the saying goes!
