A healthy adult skin cell turnover is about 4 weeks. As we age this skin renewal process slows does.
This leads to a build up of the dead skin cell layer on top of our skin. The thickened layer of dead skin causes a dulling complexion, reduces effective penetration of our skincare products, dehydrates the skin and allows fine lines and wrinkles to become firmly etched.
Additional age related changes we encounter also include a significant reduction in collagen (a key structural protein) and a loss of elasticity contributing to a sagging effect.
