Exfoliation is the process by which dead cells are removed from the skin. When we are younger, this process naturally occurs at a rate of about every 28 days. As we age, this renewal slows down resulting in thick skin called keratin (accumulation of dead skin cells). This will result in a rough, discolored and uneven texture, clogged pores, and a dull, lifeless looking complexion. Peels and products that exfoliate are a great tool in the removal of this build up. Exfoliation will help to rejuvenate, clear, smooth, reduce fine lines and even out the skin tone.
Alpha Hydroxy Acids accelerate the skin’s natural exfoliation process by weakening the bonds that hold dead skin cells together. This process allows dead skin cells to exfoliate quickly and creates a denser, tighter skin cell composition. This also stimulates a more rapid growth of new skin cells, which are softer and hydrated. This process results in a visible reduction of fine lines, the stimulation of collagen and elastin, and the evening out of skin tone. Exfoliated skin also allows the cells to more effectively benefit from increased permeation of topical applied products.
