Mask to Reveal
Physiological background and mechanism
Every day, your skin undergoes a metamorphosis without you even noticing: On the surface, the protein anchoring between old dead cells are loosened. Those cells are shed and replaced by new, vital ones that derive from stem cells in the deeper layers of the epidermis and have migrated to the surface.
Yet, as we age this process slows down. As a result, the skin becomes rough and dry, dulling the complexion. Pores can be enlarged and the absorption capacity for active ingredients rapidly drops.
Therefore, next to hydration, exfoliation is an essential step in any skin care ritual.
