Now more than ever, methods, techniques and treatments meant to retain that youthful glow proliferate everywhere. Scientists have been very busy creating artificial means to make an aging face look younger. Depending on our finances, we go for what we can convince ourselves we can afford. You know the commercial - you are worth it.

Unfortunately, many have been and are misinformed on how and why the skin ages misleading these same people into buying products that only offer short-lived, if not just unsuccessful and disappointing, results. For instance, moisturizers - they work because they seal the skin which then retains the moisture in the skin. The key is still water, but the wrong moisturizer can be a disaster.

It is smart to know just how the skin develops over time. In understanding the hows and whys of skin aging, the correct habits and treatments can then be developed to retain as much of your youthful looks for as long a time as possible.

Normal skin produces about 1,250 cells a day for each square cm and these come from 27,000 cells. The normal duration of the cell cycle of skin is 311 hours.

Compare that to the cycle of psoriasis. Psoriatic skin produces 35,000 new cells each day for each square cm; and these come from 52,000 cells but the cell cycle is reduced to 36 hours.

The epidermis renews itself every 28 days.
