As Keratinocytes move up through the stratum spinosum and stratum granulosum, they
dilferentiate to form a rigid internal structure of keratin, microfilaments and microtubules. The
outer layer of the epidermis, the stratum corneum, is composed of layers of fattened dead
cells (coreocytes) that have lost their nucleus. These cells are then shed from the skin
(desquamation); this complete process takes approximately 28 days. As we age, this cell
renewal process takes more than 28 days.
🌀 Babies 14 days
🌀 Teenagers 21-28 days
🌀Middle age 28-42 days
🌀 50 and up 42-84 days

❕ Some tips for you all ❕

🤍 Wake up tired skin with a medical grade vitamin c, enzymatic exfoliation & retinol twice weekly.
🤍 After exfoliation, the penetration of serum is elevated due to it having a smaller molecular size. Use light serums underneath your moisturiser twice daily.
🤍 Stop the face scrubs - they don’t love your skin.
