On average a person will have an entirely new epidermis every 25–45 days.

According to this site :

The epidermis, which is the outer skin layer, turns over about every one to two months. This is similar to @Lightlyseared‘s answer of 25 to 45 days.

yeah i had heard that in a little over a month your skin will have been more or less completely replenished, as you put it.
