How to make skin look youthful
Peeling the top layer of the skin is not a new idea. The Ancient Egyptians used a mix of alabaster, milk and honey to deep clean the skin. Nowadays, doctors specialising in Dermatology use a surgical procedure called dermabrasion to remove the outer layers of the skin and improve any irregularities in the skin surface. Dermabrasion also helps to reduce acne scarring, tattoo scars, wrinkles, age spots and other skin lesions. Another technique is ‘laser resurfacing’ where the outer layers of skin are removed using laser. A gentler treatment, micro-dermabrasion, delivered by beauty therapists, can erase fine lines and age spots. This soft abrasion removes the dead outer layer of skin to rejuvenate it. By adding a good exfoliating product, with scrubbing agents such as ground nutshell, or a cleanser with enzymes or acids to your beauty routine once a week, you can help to keep your skin looking fresh and youthful.
