In human skin, epidermal cells in the deeper (basal) layer are constantly dividing; these new cells then rise through the epidermal layers to the surface and flake off.
The entire epidermis renews itself every two to three weeks. Over time, our skin suffers the abuse of daily living (such as sunlight, stress, pollution). The cell turnover rate in the epidermis can slow down and dead cells on thesurface can accumulate, giving the skin a dull appearance. Cumulative exposure to sunlight causes some cells to produce more pigment, producing freckles or age spots and uneven skin tone.
Another sign of aging skin is a reduction in collagen production in the dermis (deeper skin layer), causing the skin to become thinner. As collagen and elastin break down, the skin loses flexibility and resilience.
