14 Jan Skin 101
Skin is made up of two layers; the outermost portion is the epidermis and the lower, deeper portion is called the dermis. Each of these layers have many laters of tissue within them. The epidermis takes the beating everyday, facing sun, pollution, sweating, dryness, and make-up. Fortunately, both layers are working all the time to make new skin cell layers that are continually rising up to the surface of the skin. These new cells replace older, dead skin cells that are hanging out on the surface , dulling your skin’s appearance. Sun damage is responsible for advanced wrinkling, age spots, and pigmentation. Aging skin also loses collagen. As we age, loss of collagen means weaker, thinner skin.
Advantages of Enzyme Peels: Enzyme peels accelerate the process of skin cell replacement by accelerating the chemical reactions necessary to bring forth new, plumper cells and rid the skin of the older, dead cells. Enzymes can exfoliate faster and deeper than scrubs. They loosen and remove dead skin cells, promote younger cells, diminish scars, age spots, fine lines and discoloration. Enzymes penetrate to help cleanse pores and improve skin tone and texture. They are safe for all skin types!
What is a collagen paraffin facial? Collagen is a protein that makes up about 25 to 35 percent of all the proteins in our body. It’s mostly found in connective tissue; things like tendons, muscle, and skin. The word collagen comes from the Greek meaning “glue producing”. Our bodies naturally produce collagen, but as we get older this amount becomes less and less, declining with about 1% a year. Things like smoking, sun damage, and a bad diet dramatically increase this number. With the collagen paraffin facial, it will help put back the collagen into your skin and give you the ultimate hydration your body needs. Another one of the collagen facial benefits is that the procedure isn’t painful. Effects are immediate, which makes it a perfect facial to do before an event or photoshoot!
