Dull skin? Products 'not working anymore'?

When we’re young, our cells typically take 28 days to complete the cell turnover cycle. This begins in the lowest layer of the epidermis – the stratum germinativum – where the stem cells are housed. From here the skin cells migrate through each layer of the epidermis until they reach the outermost layer – the stratum corneum.

This process takes about 14 days, after which the cells stay in the stratum corneum for approximately another 14 days for a 28 day total cycle. At this point, the skin begins to slough off these dead skin cells, which will be replaced by new ones – a process known as desquamation.

As we age, the desquamation cycle naturally slows down and leaves us with a build-up of dull, dry and dehydrated cells. Exfoliation helps speed up desquamation, making it an essential part of every client’s skin care regimen.

Chemical and physical exfoliants both remove the dulling, dead skin cells that accumulate on skin’s surface, revealing brighter, fresher-looking skin. Regular exfoliation can also help stimulate skin cell renewal, encouraging the cells to come to skin’s surface more quickly.

Additionally, removing dead cells serves to increase the penetration of hydrating ingredients and other targeted treatments.

Your Ruff Stuff Scrub can be used anywhere on the body, including face. (and it's edible... I've even tried it!!!...)
