One Secret to Youthful Skin
By: Gina Veith, LME February 16, 2015 Category: Skin
Did you know that Cleopatra, who is renowned throughout history for her radiant skin and her beauty, used to bathe in sour donkey’s milk (lactic acid) to keep her skin soft and beautiful!?
Chemical peels have been used for centuries to create uniform exfoliation of damaged skin cells. A series of chemical peels is great for almost everyone who wants rejuvenated skin!
As we age, skin cells start to turn over at a slower rate. Some of the most dramatic shifts take place after age 30. Collagen production is reduced and you have fewer new skin cells every week, an increased risk of age spots and fine lines that quickly add years to your appearance.
By getting peels, you are actually “mimicking” your body’s exfoliation process in your teens and 20’s! The peel removes the top layers of the skin with a concentrate of acid, stimulating the cells beneath the skin’s surface. This helps to flush away the old cells, toxins, and bacteria embedded in the skin’s surface. Chemical peels help your body to produce more collagen and tighten the elastin fibers- the secret to younger vibrant skin!
