While a facial every five weeks appears to be a luxury — and, yes, it is — it’s also a process that sets your skin up for transformation.
It may feel luxurious, but this is also a necessity for our ever-aging skin. Regular care is needed to counter the effects of sun, age and toxins in our environment.
Have you ever found yourself jealous of a baby’s skin? Well sure, who isn’t? One look at plump, smooth, clear skin makes us that much more aware of how ragged, scarred, dry or discolored our skin may appear.
There’s a good reason our skin is different. Aside from being on earth and exposed to the harsh elements for years— and years and years— our skin doesn’t renew like it used to. A newborn’s epidermis renews every 28 days. Gradually, the cycle slows to 60 to 90 days or more.
And while waiting for the cells to renew, our skin becomes a prime example of what the accumulation of dead skin cells looks like.
