The human skin produces about one million skin cells every 40 minutes, which equates to over 36 million skin cells per day. As our skin cells renew from the deeper layer of the epidermis, the more surface cells harden and lose moisture. Eventually these cells detach from skin and are replaced by younger cells moving up from deeper layers. Desquamation (detaching) also eliminates damaged and contaminated cells that carry pollutants and micro-organisms from the environment. These superficial skin cells don’t always effectively fall from skin and may cause clogging and congestion while leaving. As we age, desquamation and cell turnover slow down, making professional skin peeling critical to removing the accumulation of cells that give a dry, dull appearance to the skin. Through professional peeling, these dulling skin cells effectively removed, and newer cells are revealed for fresher, healthier appearance.
Our Skin is a dynamic organ that changes with seasons and environment. It also exhibits physiological fluctuations from day to night. For example, Sebum excretes the most at midday which the Transe Epidermal Water Loss (TEWL) or barrier function is at least. In the evening time skin temperature is at peaks and PH is the lowest and less sebum and losses more water. That’s why some individuals complain of drier, itchy or flare ups skin conditions at night. Therefore, skin repair and cell turnover happens mostly at night the time that body heals itself the most.
