Whether a scrub or a hydroxy-acid base, we use exfoliants that lift dulling cells to brighten and refresh. The human skin produces about one million skin cells every 40 minutes! As skin cells are produced from the deepest layer and move towards the surface, older cells harden, lose moisture, and detach from skin. This process is called desquamation, and it helps eliminates damaged, contaminated cells that carry environmental pollutants. As we age, desquamation slows, and can cause skin dullness, follicle clogging, and dryness.
Through exfoliation, dulling skin cells are effectively removed and newer cells are revealed for a fresher, healthier appearance. Through our customized facials, we use exfoliants catering to your skin type needs such as corn cob meal or rice bran to remove dead skin cells through friction or chemical exfoliants work by dissolving the intercellular “glue” that attaches skin cells, allowing separation and removal from skin. Chemical exfoliants include Lactic Acid and Salicylic Acid.
