Beauty tip of the month

Cell turnover is an ongoing process. The skin cell forms at the bottom of the epidermis, rises up through that layer, dies, and is shed. It’s nudged free by wear and tear and replaced by a newly arrived cell that has completed the same process. As all of the body processes slow beginning at your age twenty, so does cell turnover.

In youth the cells journey from the bottom of the epidermis to shedding, which takes about twenty-eight days. By the time you’ve reached late middle age, it takes about seven to ten days longer.
