What Happens When Cell Turnover Slows Down

by | Jan 3, 2024

What happens when cell turnover slows down

Skin cell turnover refers to the process by which your skin naturally sheds old, dead skin cells and replaces them with new, healthier ones. This is a crucial part of maintaining healthy, youthful-looking skin. As we age, especially beyond our twenties, the rate at which this turnover occurs tends to slow down.

When skin cell turnover slows down, it means that your skin takes longer to shed dead cells and generate new ones. This can lead to a few different effects on the skin:

  1. Dull complexion: Slower turnover can result in a dull and lacklustre appearance because dead skin cells accumulate on the surface, making your skin look tired.
  1. Rough texture: Accumulated dead skin cells can make your skin feel rough and uneven, which can affect the smoothness and texture of your skin.
  1. Wrinkles and fine lines: A slower cell turnover rate can contribute to the formation of wrinkles and fine lines, as the skin’s ability to produce collagen and elastin (key proteins for youthful skin) may be reduced.
  1. Clogged pores and acne: Dead skin cells can also clog pores, leading to acne breakouts and other skin issues.

To combat these effects and maintain healthy skin, it’s essential to take good care of your skin with regular in-clinic treatments and having a knowledgeable Esthetician is like having an excellent PT at the gym.

Using good quality skincare products like DMK paramedical skincare, incorporating Vitamin A, B & C into your routine is fundamental, staying hydrated, eating a balanced diet, and protecting your skin from UV damage.

These measures can help stimulate skin cell turnover and keep your skin looking its best.
