"How Milk Exfoliates the Skin"
How Milk Exfoliates the Skin Courtesy of Cleopatra, milk baths, has gone down in history as part of her beautifying skin care legacy. Milk has been used for centuries to moisturize the skin but there is another element -- as an effective exfoliant. The Queen of the Nile, renowned for unrivaled stunning looks, kept a journal that referenced her frequent baths in donkeys milk. While we wont take our face care regimes that far, the best natural skincare products feature milky lactic acid as an effective exfoliant that buffs the skin towards renewed youthful exuberance. Global trendsetters, like Cleopatra, have a penchant for choosing the best skin care products as they always want to look their best. Many choose the best in holistic skincare as they deliver results not found in generic and drug store products. With this crowd in mind, celebrity and skin care guru Joanna Vargas has designed her Exfoliating Mask which harnesses the rich age- reversing benefits of lactic acid. In her mind this was a no-brainer as it also provides rich hydration as it sloughs away old dermal layers. The regular practice of removing the upper dead layer of skin allows nutrients to be absorbed more easily and thus your skin will experience their full benefit. And exfoliation increases blood circulation and cell regeneration while the skin is polished to reveal fresh radiance beneath. How can lactic acid exfoliate skin? When you exfoliate it is important that the process gently severs the bonds of old skin tissue: this is where lactic acid comes in. Not only is it gentle, but it also replenishes moisture that is lost with this deep cleanse. The moisture it provides envelops the cells to give them buoyant resilience. So the skin doesnt become fragile and dry, rather it is strengthened and softened by the end of your twice weekly exfoliation. If your exfoliant has other moisturizing ingredients such as hyaluronic acid you achieve phenomenal hydration that delays the onset of maturing skin. The wrinkles associated with aging are less prone to develop prematurely and already existing fine lines are visibly diminished. An added bonus is the detoxifying properties of kaolin clay that expels detrimental toxins and contaminants that negatively impact dermal health. How often should I exfoliate? With natural face care it is safe to exfoliate all skin types no more than twice weekly for the best outcome. Performing this part of a skincare routine more often unnecessarily strips the skin of its natural anti-aging oils that will leave it brittle and dry in the end. For maximum results apply the Exfoliating Mask after cleansing preferably with a restorative Vitamin C wash that offers antioxidant protection. The trick is to let the mask set on the face for at least 10 minutes to allow the lactic acid and other nutrients to fully penetrate the pores and deliver complete nourishment. What other nutrients does the Exfoliating Mask contain? Corrective fruit enzymes offer potent vitamin C to brighten the skin as they intensify cell turnover. Reparative hyaluronic acid heals damaged epidermal cells as it moisturizes for a riveting and glowing complexion. It also enhances durability of collagen and elastin bonds to maximize the function of connective tissue. The pores are refined with even tone and texture, as the skin becomes softer for peak flawlessness. So the signs of aging are replaced with naturally lifted brows and jawlines to exude an air of resplendent youth. for more information www.joannavargas-skincare.com or www.joannavargas.com Click To Learn More Rejuvenating Serum
