How it Works
In order to protect you from the elements, your skin cells undergo a natural process called Cornification. During Cornification skin cells migrate to the outermost frontier of the epidermal layer where they die and fill with keratin (tough bundles of protein fiber). This creates the resilient epidermal barrier of the skin. The skin naturally sheds dead cells from this barrier in a constant circulation of desquamation (shedding), however the regulation of the shedding isn’t always normal and excess dead cells can build up. Age, nutrition, the weather and genetics can all affect the rate and frequency of this cycle, diminishing the quality of your appearance. Exfoliation is the perfect intervention in order to regulate the desquamation cycle. The effectiveness of the exfoliation is determined by the quality of the abrasive medium and any supplemental nourishment provided to the skin. Cosmetic Solutions’ Microdermabrasion Scrub uses white Aluminum Oxide crystals as the scouring catalyst. These crystals are inert minerals that do not cause adverse or allergic reactions to the skin. They have low heat retention and are extremely fine, so they don’t rupture or damage healthy and living cells, yet are still very adept at lifting dirt and dead cells. Red Tea Extract, Seaweed Extract and Hyaluronic Acid provide a soothing, anti-oxidant and moisture balancing benefit, to help compensate from any moisture loss that occurs during the abrasive exfoliation action.
