Exfolate Skin

The carotenoids in Acerola Cherry help to protect your eye health and boost the health of your skin, but what else can you do to improve skin care?

Exfoliation is a crucial step many people often skip in their skincare schedule. However if you begin correctly exfoliating your skin, you will begin to recognize an almost instantaneous difference.

There are many different avenues one could take to exfoliate skin:

  • Microdermabrasion
  • Chemical peels
  • Retinoids

You can remove the top layer of dead skin cells that tend to muffle your complexion using scrubs.

Exfoliating your skin approximately once a week with a microdermabrasion kit will help keep your skin glowing day in and day out. Use a gentle scrub with tiny grains. Avoid using a cheap scrub as big grains in cheap scrubs can lead to tearing of the skin and cause you more harm than good.

Many claim that chemical peels take off five years of aging. If you cannot afford the price of a chemical peel, you can use some of the over-the-counter peels that are available in stores. Results are usually noticeable in approximately one month.

Retinoids (also known as Retin-A or Renova) also removes the top layer of dead skin cells while creating collagen in the skin. As we get older, the collagen in our skin breaks down, creating wrinkles and larger pores.

Many skincare experts find it hard to agree one any one specific product, but most find Retinoids to be an outstanding skin saver.
