" In adult, skin renews itself every 28 to 42 days; while in people age 50 and older, it can take up to 84 days."
As the largest and forever growing organ in your body, skin has the ability to renew itself regularly. Skin cells 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. A healthy skin renewal cycle is the key to an even, spotless radiant complexion.
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 skin to repair and replace the damaged cells. The longer it takes for your skin to renew itself, the more built-up dead skin cells on the top layer of the skin, waiting to be replaced. These excess dead skin cells make your complexion look dull and tired.

How to Boost Skin Renewal At Night
Regular exfoliation removes dead skin cells on the top layer of your skin and helps speed up the skin's renewal process. Your skin renews itself particularly at night while you are at sleep. To boost skin renewal at night, apply Overnight Skin Perfector to freshly-cleansed face and neck avoiding the immediate eye area. This complexion repair serum has been formulated with liquorice root extract, blue chamomile essential oil, alpha and beta hydroxy acids to gently exfoliate dead skin cells, restore radiance and reduce the appearance of wrinkles and lines.

Blue chamomile essential oil and liquorice root extract have been used therapeutically to soothe skin-irritation and protect skin cells from premature ageing.

For those with hyper-sensitive skin, I highly recommend award-winning Bio-Collagen Serum. This ultra firming anti-wrinkle serum has been formulated with n-acetyl glucosamine, niacinamide and nano hyaluronic acid to speed up skin cell turnover, bring back the radiant glow and diminish the appearance of wrinkles and pigmentation spots.
Niacinamide has been shown to increase the production of collagen, elastin and skin's proteins by up to 100%. It works synergistically with n-acetyl glucosamine to boost skin renewal and reduce pigmentation spots. Studies showed that both ingredients help prevent the excess production of melanin pigment in the skin. N-acetyl glucosamine gently peels off dead skin cells and diminishes the appearance of wrinkles without causing irritation, hence it is suitable for even very sensitive skin. While nano hyaluronic acid with its ultra-low-molecular-weight particle of 0.0000000000000000001 gram penetrates deeper into the skin to rejuvenate skin cells and restore the youthfulness from within.
To reduce pigmentation spots on sensitive skin, apply Bio-Collagen Serum on freshly-cleansed skin every morning and evening.

Skin Hydration is The Key to A Long-Lasting Radiant Glow
Dehydration causes your skin to lose its glow. It weakens the skin's barrier function and makes your skin more prone to premature ageing and sensitivity. To maintain healthy hydration levels and protect your skin from dryness and irritation, apply Rose Gold Anti-Ageing Soothing Cream on top of serum every morning and evening. Formulated with 24-karat nano gold particles, saccharide isomerate, stabilised vitamin E, blue chamomile and frankincense essential oils to instantly hydrate, replenish skin's moisture and protect skin from dryness and other signs of ageing. This nourishing yet light and silky moisturiser is suitable for all skin types.
Cold temperatures in winter often cause dryness to skin. Dry skin can be hypersensitive, easily irritated by anything. For those who suffer from skin dryness, mix 2 to 4 drops of Bio-Renewal Face Oil or Chamomile & Cacay Oil and a small amount of moisturiser in your palm, then gently massage it all over freshly-cleansed face and neck after serum, every morning and evening. This will calm sensitivity and help your skin to retain moisture for longer.
