Why do people want a clearer, youthful and healthy looking skin?

Ageing of the skin involves the intrinsic process of senescence and extrinsic damage induced by chronic exposure to UV radiation. A recent consensus forum of the American Academy of Dermatology concluded that the majority of undesirable clinical features associated with ‘skin ageing’ are the result of damage to skin due to UV radiation (photo-ageing).

Clinical photo-ageing is characterized by coarseness, wrinkling, mottled pigmentation, laxity, telangiectasia, premalignant and malignant neoplasms. The role of genetics, hormones and diet need to be clarified. Appropriate lifelong use of sunscreens may minimize many of the changes associated with photoageing.

The Need to Protect & Renew Skin

Sunscreen protects the skin, but how to renew the skin?

Epidermal cell renewal was assessed nonintrusively in normal human volunteers by monitoring the disappearance of a fluorescent marker dye, dansyl chloride, from the skin surface. In young adults, stratum corneum transit time was approximately 20 days, whereas in older adults this was lengthened by more than 10 days. Because the number of horn shaped cell layers does not change with age, these data indicate that the increased stratum corneum transit time was a reflection of diminished epidermal cell proliferation. Additional analysis indicated that the decline in epidermal cell renewal may not occur at a constant rate throughout the adult lifespan but, instead, remains relatively constant in the younger years and then begins to drop dramatically after age 50.

The Need to Exfoliate the Skin

Exfoliation is necessary, what are the options to reveal new skin?

Mechanical Exfoliation / Chemical Exfoliation / Non-Chemical Exfoliation Skin naturally sheds billions of skin cells each day. When this natural shedding slows or stops due to sun damage, dry skin, oily skin, genetics, or different skin disorders, the results are unmistakable: dull, dry, or flaky skin; clogged pores; blemishes; white bumps; and uneven skin tone. Using an exfoliant steps in to help put everything in balance again. When you gently get rid of built-up skin cells you can undo clogged pores, stop breakouts, smooth out wrinkles, even make dry skin become a thing of the past.
