The epidermis is the outermost layer of the skin, which I continually exposed to friction and the effects of the weather and other environmental factors, therefore there is a need for constant regeneration of the cells. The epidermis itself varies in thickness, but averages out at around 0.25mm in thickness.

As the process of skin regeneration occurs the new skin cells pass through each of these layers in turn, this process lasts approximately one month from start to finish.
The innermost (basale) layer is the only living layer, this is where new skin cells are produced, the granular area of the epidermis is there the new skin cells are keratinised and then the cells are pushed to the horny layer where it is desquamated. The individual processes of cell regeneration is covered in the next section
