Smooth, soft, and flawless skin is our goal.
We know that the body’s skin cells turn over within 4 weeks, but before
we shed our outer layer, our skin can appear dull or dry. Sun exposure, perspiration,
exercise, frequent showering, dry and cold climate air, and of course age,
can all contribute in causing our skin to look dry and lifeless.
With products and specially formulated ingredients, the body can be polished smooth and fresh from head to toe. Procedures such as facials, body polishes, exfoliating pedicures as well as microdermabrasion and chemical peels can work to slough off the outer layer of our skin, giving us the smooth skin we’re looking for.
Spa services involve ingredients such as jojoba beads, marble grains, ground apricot, walnut shells and sea salt, which all work to remove the dead and dry layers of our skin. The more medical approaches like microdermabrasion and chemical peels employ aluminum oxide crystals and alpha or beta hydroxy acids, respectively.
Exfoliation can also be done at home since several skin care lines all contain some of these ingredients. As a word of caution, you should not use the more abrasive products if you have allergy prone skin or active acne.
At SkinCareLab, we are happy to suggest a treatment
or product line that will offer you the silkiest, smoothest skin of the season.
