Microdermabrasion and other extreme forms of exfoliation are among the most popular skin treatments today. Advocates of these methods contend that stripping off layers of skin eliminates wrinkles, revealing fresh, beautiful skin. But, what most people don't realize is that these layers are necessary for protection, and that tearing them off exposes vulnerable skin cells to the elements, resulting in rapid, premature aging.
So, what's a more natural alternative that actually combats aging skin without the detrimental long-term effects? Kasia's resident esthetician, Stacey, employs a mild exfoliation technique that removes unwanted, dead skin cells without totally stripping the skin. Her weapon of choice: luxurious fruit enzyme masks infused with papaya, pineapple, pumpkin, and apple that eat away at unwanted skin cells and penetrate deep into the skin, stimulating collagen and elastin production and delivering nourishing antioxidants. AHAs like lactic acid and malic acid are another good defense against wrinkles that should be used in moderation - usually up to once a week, depending on strength of treatment.
The overall idea is to continually feed and heal our skin, not strip it away. When youthful skin is the goal, gentle and nourishing treatments are better suited to provide more desirable long-term results.
