Exfoliate the Right Way
THE 7-DAY RESCUE PEEL*
* Have sensitive skin? Then this plan is not for you. But your skin can still benefit from exfoliation. Just stick to using one product (like Measured Micrograins) once or twice a week.
Without proper exfoliation, dead skin cells can get trapped on the skin's surface. When they're trapped, they build up. Once they've built up, you'll see:
- A flat, dull complexion
- More noticeable fine lines and wrinkles
- Rough texture and blemishes
- Lessened effects of your skin products
DID YOU KNOW?
Mild daily exfoliation enables the skin to better absorb additional daily cosmeceutical ingredients. For example, the calcium in Bioelements Sleepwear Overnight Rejuvenation Creme or the probiotic actives in Probiotic Anti-Aging Serum can more effectively penetrate the skin!
A cell is "born" – bright, new and healthy. This layer is regenerative (it is closest to blood ﬂow in the dermis) and provides color to the skin.
Here, the skin cell still maintains a healthy color. Its shape becomes more irregular as it begins to accumulate toughening proteins — preparing to become part of your body's most protective barrier.
The mature cell has now broken down a bit with age. It is wider, ﬂatter, and adheres strongly to other cells. This cell is tough and protective.
It only takes a few weeks for this once healthy skin cell to become ﬂaky, dehydrated and colorless. This ﬁnal stage consists of about 10 to 30 sub-layers of dead cells. Two to three of these layers are shed daily. Exfoliation will help the process.
Which one would you like on your face?
The pumice crystals in Pumice Peel are spherical in shape – allowing it to gently, but effectively, remove dead skin cells. Other at-home microdermabrasion products use jagged pumice which can be just plain painful.
DID YOU KNOW? The primary function of the epidermis is “to keep the insides in and the outside out”.
You physically exfoliate first with the Herbology’s granuals. Combing Bioelements Herbology with Sensitive Skin Cleanser and massaging over the face will physically slough off dead, dulling skin cells that have accumulated on the surface of the skin.
2. CHEMICAL EXFOLIATION part 1
Adding water to the mixture immediately triggers the “melting action” in Herbology, and releases its natural AHAs. Imagine the skin as a brick wall - AHAs remove not only the keratinized skin cells (the bricks), but also dissolve the intercellular glue (the mortar) that holds the dead cells together.
3. CHEMICAL EXFOLIATION part 2
Next comes Quick Refiner - a leave on chemical gel exfoliator that contains a blend of powerful beta and alpha hydroxy acids, including glycolic and multi-fruit acids.
When you combine both AHA and BHA acids together in a formula, they partner together to allow for greater penetration. The AHA dissolves the intercellular lipids that hold our dead skin cells together, and the BHA’s have a proteolytic (protein digesting) action to dissolve the keratinized cells.
Each exfoliation method works together in the Triple-Action, Rapid-Resurfacing Kit to peel away time, leaving skin smooth, refined, and looking years younger.
