Shed Your Skin to a Fresher You

Shed Your Skin to a Fresher You

Wrinkles and spots are the price we now pay for those afternoons on the beach 20 years ago slathered in oil. Now with wrinkles, aging, and smoking lines we want to fix our faces. We want to shed our wrinkled, spotted skin and look fresher. Shedding the outer layer skin is like an animal shedding its skin. The peeling away the upper layer of skin helps unclogs our pores, remove toxins and when exfoliated and washed off, the newer and cleaner cells come to the fresh surface; leaving a soft, clean, fresher face. You can now do this at home using Five Star Nights anti-aging skin care line made only from organic and natural ingredients, no harsh chemical peels. You can even pronounce all the ingredients!

Tempe, Arizona (PRWEB) October 11, 2005

Beta hydroxy acids (BHAs), or a combination of alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) and BHAs, have appeared as ingredients in anti-aging skin care products. While both AHAs and BHAs act as exfoliants, AHAs are a group of weak organic acids, which easily penetrates the skin barrier. AHAs also have a moisturizing effect. By increasing the moisture content of upper skin layers, AHAs smooth out fine lines and wrinkles, as well as relieve dryness and flakiness.

Organic AHA ingredients: derived from fruit, sugar cane, and milk sugars and served up in creams and lotions. The most commonly used and most effective AHAs are glycolic and lactic acids. Both of these easily penetrate the skins surface, and they have the most accumulated research on their functionality and benefit for skin. Glycolic and Lactic acids dissolve the “skins cement” that binds the dead skin cells to the surface of your skin. The cells loosen and wash off or peel off. This allows the newer cells underneath to come to the surface. Eliminating dead skin can unplug pores, allow normal oil flow through and out of the pores, allows skin moisture by enhancing moisture uptake, and binds water to the skin.

AHAs and BHAs use a chemical process to penetrate the skin, versus salt and sugar scrubs that use friction and scrape the exposed area of skin. AHAs and BHAs only exfoliate, or remove the dead/damaged skin cells and leave the healthy skin cells alone. It is highly recommended using sunscreen as AHA causes skin sensitivity and you may burn easier. Wear a hat with a brim of at least 4 inches, long sleeve shirt, and sunscreen of SPF 15. AHA may cause irritation or redness.

Remember: Sun Protection used everyday is the Best Wrinkle Preventer.
