Uncover a more radiant you
Posted 4 June 2015 12:00 AM by Nurture team
Much like the rest of your body, your skin is constantly changing. This summer we can help to make sure that this is a change for the better by telling you a little bit about how skin works.
What’s on the surface of skin?
Your body is continuously making new skin cells, this means that skin will usually naturally regenerate itself about once every 27 days. ‘Regeneration’ is the process whereby the skin will form a new surface layer. This outer section of skin is called the ‘epidermis’ and the ‘corneal layer’ of this is what is that is visible on the outside of the body. It may disturb you to know that the corneal layer is actually dead and that’s why it is prone to looking dull and dry.
Inner skin activity
New skin cells are made inside the inner ‘dermis’ sections of the skin. This inner layer works like a small factory working with lots of components such as sweat, oil, blood, collagen and hair. Collagen is probably the part that you will be most concerned about here, as this is responsible for making sure that your skin keeps on regenerating and stays firm. Not surprisingly then, younger skin regenerates more quickly due to higher levels of collagen, whilst ageing skin can become thinner and more susceptible to wrinkles.
Simple steps for radiance
By embracing a new, simple skincare routine this year, you can very easily slow down the ageing process by maintaining a fast pace of regeneration.
- Keep the surface corneal layer clean and remove loose dead skin cells with a nourishing exfoliator.
- Give the inner dermis a helping hand to boost collagen production and improve skin tone with a targeted treatment like the nurture collagen boosting serum.
- Provide moisture to the skin and help to slow ageing by keeping regeneration at a face pace. Try either the replenish or intensive day and night creams.
