Say Hello 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 the top.

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.

How 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.
