Spotlight on exfoliation and the cell turnover process
1. Cells are continuously reproduced in the basal layer of the epidermis. 2. Over a period of 28 days, they are pushed towards the surface of the skin and turn into a protein substance called keratin. As cells die, they release moisture and lipids and come to rest in overlapping layers on the surface of the skin. 3. There are 15 to 20 layers of flat, dead squamous cells resting on the surface of the skin. The skin’s natural function is to shed those cells. Ageing, stress and dehydration impede the skin’s natural desquamation process. (Illustration: Structure of the epidermis)
Reducing skin congestionWhen oily skin and excess dead cells combine in the pores, congestion develops. Below the epidermis, the sebaceous gland produces oil. When dead cells are not shed properly, they combine with the oil and stick inside the pore, creating a plug or blockage. The lump you can feel below the skin, is the hardened mass of dead cells and sebum. The “plug” in the pore is both unsightly and difficult to remove. Open comedones as seen above, distend the pore, and become blackened by oxidation. Closed comedones, remain trapped below a layer of dead skin cells on the surface.
The key to reducing the appearance of comedones is regular exfoliation, because exfoliation removes the excess dead skin cells and prevents pores becoming blocked.
