Best Answer

Skin cells start in the stratum spinosum and move up the stratum granulosum, then to the stratum licidum, and stratum corneum. This is the epidermis inside out layers and growth process.

Why do you continuously shed dead skin and keratin?

You shed dead skin cells because your body is constantly producing new skin cells, and the new skin cells push older ones farther and farther away from blood supply and oxygen, causing them to die. Dead skin cells aren't that useful, and space is needed for the skin cells that are still alive, and that's why the deal cells are shed, along with the keratin that is in them. If we didn't shed our skin cells, we would have nasty, thick skin.

What is the principle role of keratin?

Keratin is a protein that is found throughout the human body in nails, teeth, hair, and skin. The primary role of keratin is to promote strength and elasticity in skin. When keratin cells move to the surface of ones skin, the keratin cells die and form a protective layer around the skin. These dead keratin cells are shed as dead skin cells, while more keratin cells move to the surface and die to replace this protective layer.
