Alpha & Beta-Hydroxy Acids

Exfoliation is vital to skin health, yet it is often forgotten when developing a skin care regimen.

Exfoliation is the action of using mechanical (micro beads, cornmeal, pumice) or chemical (AHA’s) means to aid in skin cell shedding from the epidermis (outmost layer).  Skin cells are constantly regenerated, with new skin cells created in the dermis and old, dead skin cells shed from the epidermis. This process keeps skin clean and smooth, helps prevent pore clogging, and reduces acne breakouts.

What are Antioxidants?

Antioxidants are molecules that protect your body’s cells by neutralizing external forces (like the sun, air pollution, wind, extreme temperature,) and internal factors (like emotions, metabolism, or the presence of excess oxygen.)

What are cosmeceuticals?

Cosmeceuticals represent a collaboration between cosmetics and pharmaceuticals, which is the fastest- growing sector of the skin care industry. Like cosmetics, cosmeceuticals are topically applied, but they contain certain ingredients that manipulate the biological function of the skin. Cosmeceuticals improve appearance, such as skin tone, texture, clarity and wrinkles by delivering nutrients essential for healthy skin. Botanical Cosmeceuticals are natural vitamins and minerals extracts with medicinal properties, they contain high amounts of antioxidants, phenols, flavonoids, amino acids and lipids.
