Skin Care 101

The Importance of Professional Exfoliation


The human skin produces about 1 million skin cells every 40 minutes which equates to over 36 million skin cells per day. As our skin cells renew from the deepest layer of the epidermis, the more surface cells harden and lose moisture. Eventually these cells detach from skin and are replaced by younger cells moving up from the deeper layers. The rate at which new cells form in the stratum basale is known as cell renewal rate; The time it takes for the cells to form in these deeper layers until the time of detachment is known as the cell turnover time. Detachment also eliminates damaged and contaminated cells that carry pollutants and microrganisms from the environment. These superficial skin cells don't always effectively fall from skin and may cause clogging and congestion while leaving the skins surface dry and dull looking. As we age, detachment and cell turnover slow down, making professional exfoliation critical to removing the accumulation of cells that give a dry, dull appearance to the skin. Through professional exfoliation, these dulling skin cells are effectively removed, and newer cells are revealed for a fresher, healthier appearance. Similarly, removing the excess barricade of cells from the skin's surface helps ingredients penetrate further through the skin. As such, exfoliation is a critical step in any healthy skin regimen. Facials are recommended every 28-35 days.
