How Long Does It Take For Your Skin To Renew?

Skin Cell Turnover

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.

Skin Renewal Process According To Age Group

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 damaged cells, causing dead skin cells to build up on the skin's surface and complexion to look dull and tired.

Daily exfoliation helps boost skin cell renewal

Regular daily exfoliation is the key to a youthful, radiant complexion. It removes dead skin cells, boosts cellular turnover and reduces the signs of ageing. Daily exfoliation stimulates skin renewal, hence the damaged cells will be replaced with new, fresher cells faster.

Skincare Ingredients which speed up skin renewal

Studies showed that these following skincare ingredients improve the skin's ability to renew itself and repair damages:

  1. Niacinamide (vitamin B3) boosts skin cell renewal by significantly increasing the production of collagen, elastin and other proteins in the skin. It also helps soothe and protect the skin from photoageing.
  2. Alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) stimulate skin cell regeneration by exfoliating and removing dead skin cells. Glycolic acid, lactic acid, citric acid, malic acid and tartaric acid are the most commonly used AHAs in skincare products.
  3. Salicylic acid which is also known as beta hydroxy acid (BHA) accelerates skin cell renewal and reduces the sebum secretion. It is best for blemish-prone, oily skin.
  4. N-acetyl glucosamine speeds up the skin renewal process by dramatically increasing the production of skin's hyaluronic acid and collagen. It also gently peels off dead skin cells and diminishes the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, dark spots and other signs of ageing. It is best for sensitive skin.

How To Boost Skin Cell Renewal

It is crucial for every adult to have a healthy skin renewal rate which the skin renews itself every 28 to 42 days. If your skin suffers from lack of radiance, uneven skin tone or visible signs of ageing, follow these following steps to boost skin cell renewal and transform the appearance of your skin in as fast as few days.  

1. Exfoliate daily

Choose a non-abrasive exfoliating formula like Night Repair Skin Cell Renewal Booster which has been formulated with 5 alpha hydroxy acids: glycolic acid, lactic acid, citric acid, manic acid and tartaric acid. For best results, use Night Repair Skin Cell Renewal Booster as a pre-serum to optimise skin renewal, remove dead skin cells and bring back the radiant glow.

 

 

2. Apply a serum which has the optimum concentration of n-acetyl glucosamine and niacinamide all over the face every morning and evening

Rose Royale Supreme Anti-Ageing Serum is a super potent, ultra-concentrated serum with 24 karat gold, niacinamide and n-acetyl glucosamine to restore, renew and protect the skin from all ageing factors. Backed by 25 years of intensive research and innovation, this renewal boosting serum is further infused with royal jelly, hyaluronic acid and marine collagen peptides to lift and firm up the skin while also improve density and elasticity. With regular daily use, the appearance of wrinkles, lines, dark spots and pores are visibly reduced.
