Mask to Reveal
Physiological background and mechanism
Every day, your skin undergoes a metamorphosis without you even knowing. On the surface, the protein anchoring between old dead cells is loosened. Those cells are shed and replaced by new, vital ones, derived from stem cells in the deeper epidermal layers which have migrated to the surface.
Yet, as age increases, this process slows down. As a result, the skin becomes rough and dry, dulling the complexion. Pores can be enlarged and the ability to absorb active ingredients rapidly decreases.
Therefore, next to hydration, exfoliation is an essential step in any comprehensive skincare ritual.
