Increasing Skin Cell Turnover for a Radiant complexion

Glowing Glass Skin
Skin Cell Turnover

The average skin cycle is approximately 28 - 40 days

A new skin cell is produced in the deepest layer of the epidermis. The cell travels up through the epidermis until it reaches the uppermost layer of the skin before naturally shedding the dead skin cells.

Reduced cellular turnover, can result in a build-up of skin cells on the surface that can lead to issues such as hyperpigmentation, milia (small white bumps on the skin), uneven texture and dullness.

Skin renewal time frame

The main causes that slow skin cell turnover:

Advancing age is a significant factor in slowing skin turnover. Sun exposure, external irritants such as smoking, poor sleep patterns, high-stress levels and overall health can impact the cellular turnover rate.

How can we repair the damage and improve our skin?

Our clinic can discuss any concerns you have during a consultation however there are things that you can implement now to increase your skin cell turnover rate.

skin exfoliation and exfoliant


Regular exfoliation enhances the removal of dead skin cells. Increase cell turnover with either physical (scrubs) or chemical (acids), or alternating between the 2 for optimal results. 

**Remember to start slowly to understand what your skin can handle so that you don’t impede your skin's healthy barrier.

skin hydration hyaluronic acid


Your skin needs hydration to produce new skin cells. If your skin is dehydrated, your skin cell turnover slows.

Drink plenty of water and hydrate your skin with products containing ultra-moisturizing ingredients that both replenish your moisture levels and help lock it in.

sunscreen spf sun


UV Rays can damage skin cells. Certain exfoliants and creams can increase your risk of skin damage. Ensure you are wearing SPF daily, Also remember to reapply every 2 hours whilst in the sun!
