As we age our skin starts to look dull, firmness disappears, the youthful glow is diminishing. Why does this happen & how can we look fabulous in our 40’s? Our facial skin is made up of three layers the epidermis (what we see), dermis (the middle layer) and subcutaneous layer (the third layer).
Our skin, due to shedding of skin cells, replaces itself every 7 years. Your skin sheds every 28-45 days, rejuvenating the epidermis and allowing the next generation of skin cells to come forward. What happens is we get a BUILD UP of DEAD SKIN CELLS this will make our skin look tired, uneven tone & fine wrinkles may appear. With young skin types they get blocked pores that forms pimples and scar tissue. We shed about 40 lbs of skin in a lifetime! The dead skin needs to be slough off to allow the new cells to the top.

AHA Acids have caused a sensation recently as anti-wrinkle active ingredients.
They loosen the intercellular ‘glue’, allowing new cells to come through more rapidly and stimulate the formation of collagen and elastin. The visible effect is a skin which looks fresher and younger. AHA acids help remove the surface skin cells, improving skin texture and color. Skin is left feeling plump and glowing as the new skin layers are revealed. Despite its modern chemical name, the beneficial effects of AHA have been used for centuries. Cleopatra use to have her legendary milk baths and tales of woman using red wine baths to keep their skin youthful.
