Your skin sheds 30,000 dead skin cells every minute.

When you were born, it took your skin 6 months to settle into it's permeant skin tone.

Acne is caused by the over production of cells that line the sweat gland. That is why the best way to treat spots is by applying facial oils as it tricks your skin into thinking it's already produced enough oil and so forth so it won't produce any extra.
