Skin cell regeneration and skin cell function are terms heard quite a bit these days when it comes to skin care, but few people may actually understand what that means. Our goal here is to rectify that so you better understand how important this function is to your skin’s health as well as the importance of using better skin care products in your daily regimen.
What Is Skin Cell Regeneration?
Skin cell regeneration is something that happens every day of our life naturally. Unfortunately, as we age, this process can be slowed. In its simplest terms, this is the process of new skin rising through the layers of our skin from the bottom to the top layer, which is called the epidermis.
Now, as we get older, the fact that this process is dramatically slowed can show in the form of sagging skin and wrinkles. The natural effects of aging can, however, be countered with the right skin care products. Using ingredients such as essential oils and key vitamins, specifically formulated products promote skin cell regeneration.
How to Promote Better Skin Cell Regeneration
When the skin is damaged, skin cell regeneration is naturally activated. Skin inflammation is the tell-tale sign of some type of injury to the epidermis or beyond. When this happens, white blood cells flow into the wounded area and our immune cells then release chemicals to fight the infection or wound. In addition to injuries, our skin is constantly shedding dead skin cells and regenerating new ones, which is where your skin cell regimen comes into play. Since this process is slowed during age, one of the most effective ways to promote skin cell regeneration is with dermatologist-developed and approved skin care products.
Additionally, a visit to your dermatologist would be advised. If you have never had your “skin type” diagnosed or have never been to a dermatologist, that needs to be rectified quickly. In fact, especially when getting older, it is recommended to have yearly appointments with your dermatologist to ensure the health of your skin. This would also be a good time to go over the skin care products you plan on using to fight off these early signs of aging.
An example of a skin care product you can use to help promote skin cell function is our Marula Face Serum. It contains the key ingredients we mentioned above, such as Vitamin C from the Marula nut and Chia seed oil, which contains fatty acids known to accelerate skin repair functions. This is just one of the many new skin care products developed by Dr. Susan Kallal to help you fight the natural signs of aging.
