We constantly grow new skin and slough off the old. Until now, scientists have never agreed on exactly how this works, but new research from the University of Sheffield may provide the answer. Engineers and biologists at the University have shown how a recent theory – that skin has ‘sleeping’ stem cells which can be woken up when required – best explains how our skin constantly regrows. The research – conducted in collaboration with The Procter & Gamble Company (P&G) and published in Nature Scientific Reports – has implications for combating the effects of aging and perhaps even skin cancer.
