to Authentic Exfoliation for Younger-Looking Skin
What part of the skin's
anatomy is involved in exfoliation?
Ah, the beauty of smooth, soft, healthy looking skin.
Your skin in is your body's largest organ. Maintaining
its youthful, vibrant appearance can be easier than you
think. Our skin has two main layers. The dermis, or inner
layer has nerve endings, sweat glands, oil glands and
blood vessels. It contains collagen and elastin which
support the skin's shape and general tone. New skin cells
are created here and migrate to the surface of the skin
during a 30 day process for younger skin, or up to 75
days for older skin, during which they ultimately die
and become saturated with keratin. The outer layer is
called the epidermis, and it constantly produces new skin
cells from the bottom to replace the dead skin cells at
What is exfoliation?
Cleansing and moisturizing are important, but do you exfoliate?
Most specialists will say that proper skin exfoliation
is the most important part of skin care. "Exfoliare"
is latin for "to strip of leaves." Referring
to the removal of surface layers of certain substances,
exfoliation is meant to remove dull surface layers of
skin cells to reveal new layers. This process can be traced
back to the ancient Egyptians. Only exfoliation can effectively
eliminate the dead, dry and dull skin cells that often
remain attached to your healthier skin cells, building
up and blocking pores and causing unsightly blemishes.
Formulated for home use, IdealPeel is specifically designed
to aid in the removal of dead skin cells through a novel
means: sea sourced phytonutrients and enzymes.
What is the difference between
mechanical and chemical exfoliation?
How is IdealPeel better? Some exfoliants are physical
or mechanical by nature, using scrubs to manually scrape
off the dead skin cells. Common examples include microfiber
cloths, sugar, pumice stones, loofahs, salt crystals or
facial scrubs. Other exfoliants are chemical, using alpha
hydroxy acids or beta hydroxy acids, citric acid or glycolic
acid, relying on a burning effect to rid the dead skin
cells from the healthier cells. But IdealPeel uses natural
phytonutrient enzymes to gently yet effectively bind to
the dead cells and then break down the bonds holding dead
cells onto skin, making it easy to peel or slough off.
Furthermore, an exfoliant that relies on enzymes is less
likely to cause irritation. The result of this instant
gentle peeling is immediate; vibrant skin is permitted
to break through: smoother, more refined, softer and healthier
skin means youthful looking skin.
does IdealPeel actually work?
Research has proven that epidermal cells adhere to each
other through calcium dependent desmosomes. The cell cohesiveness
becomes weaker as the cells migrate upward from the deeper
layers of the epidermis to the outermost layers of the
dermis. This weakening effect is accelerated by enzymes,
which break the desmosome bonds and free the dead damaged
skin to slough off. IdealPeel's phytonutrient enzymes
are known for an ability to gently break down the bonds
holding dead cells onto skin, accelerating the skin’s
natural exfoliation process. By digesting the dead keratin
cells of the outer layer of skin, IdealPeel offers another
major advantage - an exfoliant that doesn’t scrub
or rely on acids to peel has less chance to cause irritation.
Exfoliation is key for healthy skin but some scrubs may
also be irritating. Phytonutrient exfoliants rarely cause
irritation, and they still lead to smoother, glowing skin.
Why is IdealPeel so important
to a good skin care plan?
While your skin typically sheds dead skin cells, this
process slows down significantly with age. If dead skin
cells accumulate unassisted by exfoliation, dullness and
uneven skin results and acne could ensue. Regular exfoliation
with IdealPeel creates a radiant, smooth complexion and
should be the basis for any consistent skin care regime.
The dullness and problem blemishes from blackheads are
sloughed off, revealing unclogged pores. Healthy skin,
released from the trappings of dead skin cells and impurities,
will absorb moisturizers better, look rejuvenated and
improve appearance significantly. This is why exfoliation
is touted as the single best process to promote healthy
skin, which should be followed by cleansing and moisturizing.
You will only need to exfoliate once every week for normal
to oily skin, and once every two weeks for dry skin. Regular
exfoliation with IdealPeel encourages skin regeneration
and the growth of new skin cells.
