Battle Skin Aging & Dark Spots- Increase Cell Turnover Rate with the Right Skincare

It’s sad but true – skin health often takes a toll with age.

While the market is saturated with skin care products claiming time-reversal and miracle workings, it often isn’t that easy to achieve young-looking skin. 

We’ll let you in on a major secret to youthful, flawless skin – increasing your skin’s cell turnover rate! While that may sound like a lot of scientific jargon, the concept is simple and is the key to finding the best anti-aging skincare products.

What is Cell Turnover & Why Is It Important?

Cellular turnover is the process whereby dead skin cells are shed and replaced with younger, healthier skin cells – or, skin cell rejuvenation.

This process plays a key role in affecting your skin health and appearance, particularly skin aging and pigmentation issues.

While skin cell turnover is a continuous biological process, the turnover rate can be affected by a range of factors including age. As we get older, cellular turnover rates slow down.

This increases the visible signs of aging, including wrinkles, skin sagging, and blemishes.

Aging skin also suffers from an over-production of melanin, which results in a dull complexion and increases the chances of hyperpigmentation, or dark spots.

As such, boosting cellular turnover rates should be a key target for those hoping to improve their overall skin health and slow down the visible signs of aging.

This can be easily achieved by introducing the right skin care products to your daily skincare routine, especially those curated to see visible cellular turnover results. 

How to Increase Cell Turnover Rate?

Since we’ve established what cellular turnover is and why it’s important to our overall skin health, here comes the next important question – how do we boost our skin’s cell turnover rate?

Exfoliation is an essential step towards encouraging faster cell turnover, by helping to remove dead skin cells. This can be done in the form of physical exfoliation, with scrubs like ZO Skin Health Dual Action Scrub or exfoliating pads like  ZO Skin Health Complexion Renewal Pads. These aid with physically clearing up clogged pores and dead skin cells. For the best results, your skincare routine should also include chemical exfoliating products like the ZO Skin Health Exfoliation Accelerator 10% AHA. It includes important ingredients like glycolic and lactic acids, both of which are some of the most popular types of AHA found in the best skin care products in Singapore for removing dead skin cells.

Another key ingredient for increasing skin cell turnover rate is Retinol, which is featured in some of the best anti-aging products like ZO Skin Health Wrinkle + Texture Repair 0.5% Retinol. These retinoids are not just effective at improving the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, but also play a big role in plumping skin, clearing pores, and fading dark spots. However, do take note that patience is key when using retinol skincare products – it usually takes around 3-6 months of consistent application to see visible results. 
When using your exfoliating products and retinol in your daily skincare routine, remember to top everything off with good sunscreen. This is because exfoliation and retinol tend to make your skin more sun-sensitive, so it’s always good practice to keep your skin well-protected to prevent further damage.

Finding a suitable skincare brand can be a journey in itself.

These will help ensure that your skincare routine is optimized when using exfoliating and retinol products to boost cellular turnover rates, for flawless youthful skin!
