" Regular exfoliation is the key to a long-lasting radiant complexion. It removes dead skin cells, boosts cellular renewal and reduces the signs of ageing."
As the largest and forever growing organ in your body, skin has the ability to renew itself regularly. Skin cell turnover is a repetitive process where the living cells from the lowest epidermis layer gradually moving up to the top layer of the skin. Then these skin cells die and shed off, revealing more radiant, younger-looking skin underneath.
Ageing and Skin Renewal Process
The skin cell turnover rate varies individually and age plays a major role. In babies, the skin renews itself every 14 days. In teenagers, this process takes about 28 days. In adults, it takes between 28 and 42 days. In those age 50 and older, the skin renewal process can take up to 84 days.
With age, it takes longer for your skin to repair and replace the damaged cells, hence the more built-up dead skin cells on the top layer of the skin. These excess dead skin cells make your complexion look dull and tired.
" Antioxidant Youthful Essence is the first anti-ageing formula that I created for my own skin. 20 years on, I still use this ultimate pre-serum treatment complex twice a day."

How To Boost Skin Renewal In Sensitive Skin?
If you have sensitive skin, avoid using alpha or beta hydroxy acids such as glycolic acid, lactic acid, malic acid and salicylic acid to boost skin renewal. Look for other active ingredients like niacinamide (vitamin B3) and n-acetyl glucosamine.
Niacinamide soothes sensitive skin and strengthens skin's barrier function. It increases the production of collagen, elastin and other proteins in the skin by up to 100%. N-acetyl glucosamine gently peels off dead skin cells and diminishes the appearance of wrinkles. Studies showed that niacinamide works synergistically with n-acetyl glucosamine to boost skin renewal, reduce pigmentation spots and prevent the excess production of melanin pigment in the skin.
The award-winning Bio-Collagen Serum has been formulated with n-acetyl glucosamine, niacinamide, 24-karat gold nanoparticles and hyaluronic acid to speed up skin cell turnover, bring back the radiant glow and diminish the appearance of wrinkles and pigmentation spots.
“ I created Bio-Collagen Serum as a birthday present to my mum. This supreme anti-ageing serum is now the heart of my own daily skincare routine.”
