body as nature. us as nature.
how we shed.

It takes roughly one month for new cells to get all the way to the top layer, meaning the skin you have a month from today will be completely new compared to the skin you have now.
If you’re wondering exactly how many skin cells fall off, get ready for some staggering numbers. Scientists estimate that the human body is made up of around 10 trillion cells in total. Your skin makes up about 16 percent of your body weight, which means you have roughly 1.6 trillion skin cells
<em>. Of course, this estimate can vary tremendously according to a person’s size. The important thing is that you have a lot of skin cells. Of those billions of skin cells, between 30,000 and 40,000 of them fall off every hour. <span style=”color: #000000;”><strong>Over a 24-hour period, you lose almost a million skin cells</strong> </span></em>
