Most of us know our skin replaces itself every month. Your skin cells take nearly four weeks to make their journey from deepest layer to the very surface of your skin.
On their travels they pass through four different stages of change or maturation. How well your cells make those important changes to hopefully become fully mature and resilient, will determine how beautiful your skin is now and in the future.
Unfortunately your face will naturally have a much lower number of fully matured cells than skin on the rest of your body. This is mainly due to the fact that your face is constantly exposed to the drying effect of the environment and the cells need water to mature.
There are some simple things you can do to improve the rate of mature cells you have and ensure your skin looks even more beautiful…
Hydrate your skin: Because our skin cells are actually dead by the time they reach the upper layers of your skin, enzymes govern all the crucial changes that need to happen to that cell. These dynamic little chemicals regulate everything from the formation of the cell envelope to the production of the lipid ‘mortar’ that glues the cells together.
The key element to effective enzyme action is hydration. Enzymes need water to work! Without water enzyme action is inhibited and your skin suffers. So simple rituals like soaking your skin with warm water and your Janesce Soaking Drops before applying your favourite potion help keep your skin hydrated and your enzymes working.
Drink more green tea: The antioxidants in green tea have proven to increase the rate at which your skin cells mature. A higher cell maturation rate results in having more hydrated skin. More hydrated skin means better enzyme action which again strengthens the skin and so the cycle goes…
