A radiant complexion is one that reflects light. In our youth, our skin cells turn over every 28 days. But by your 20s, turnover slows, and between 30 and 40 that rate slows to every 40 days. Dead skin cells do not reflect light causing a lackluster look to our skin. In order to have the glow of youth – we must exfoliate to hasten cell turnover. Retinoids and glycolic acids are the fist step in speeding up those sluggish cells. The next step is chemical peels, which reveal luminous skin that reflects light and smooths uneven skin tone.
