Up to the age of 14, the skin on the face exfoliates naturally every 14 days. This quick rate of renewal leaves the youngster with a healthy-looking glowing complexion.
However, as we get older the rate of natural exfoliation slows down. By the age of 25 and over the skin will exfoliate every 28 days or so, and this turnover stretches to 40-42 days as we age.. The resulting build up of dead skin cells can leave the skin looking dull and lifeless.
To fix this problem, we need to establish a twice-daily skin routine of cleansing, toning, and exfoliation. Bare Skin Care has products that contain alpha and beta hydroxy acids (AHAs and BHAs), because they can help promote the natural process of exfoliation.
Our Bare Skin Care Programs all contain ingredients that exfoliate the skin. But occasionally things happen in our life that prevent us from our skin care regime, like illness, vacation, or just an exceptionally busy time in our life, and this causes a roughness due to build-up of dead skin cells.
If you want more exfoliation, then our Bare Skin Care Elegant Enhancer will be for you. There are several ingredients in this 10% AHA Cream that gives it the muscles needed to strengthen skin. The first ingredient is Glycolic Acid, a beloved Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) used as an exfoliant to remove dead skin cells and smooth skin texture. It also effortlessly reduces signs of fine lines and wrinkles. The second ingredient is Hydrolyzed Collagen, the main structural protein found in skin. This is added to supplement the already-present supply created naturally by the body, plumping skin and leaving it feeling full and taut. The third strengthening ingredient is Glucosamine HCI, which improves moisture content in the skin, hydrating it properly for the long term. It also strengthens connective tissues to resist breakdown, combat environmental toxins, and to secure protection.
Once the skin is protected, it’s time to calm and heal the skin... there are three soothing ingredients contribute to this process. The first is Olea Europaea Fruit Oil, more commonly known as Olive Oil, which is rich in vitamin E and antioxidants. It also replaces skin moisture, restores elasticity, and acts as an anti‐inflammatory and anti‐bacterial agent. The second ingredient is Tocopherol, a naturally occurring fat-soluble form of vitamin E. It also acts as an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory, and protects skin from oxidative stress. The third is Allantoin, which possesses soothing, moisturizing and skin softening properties while promoting healing and healthy cell renewal.
