healthy skin care

There are several key elements that make up a healthy skin care regimen, and following ALL the important steps is the number one investment you can make to keep your skin from showing the signs of aging. One integral step that is often left out of a skin care regimen is exfoliation. Big mistake! It seems that many of you think that if you simply wash and moisturize your face daily and wear sunscreen during swimsuit season (essentially following the same routine you did when you were 20-something), that that’s all you need. But lack of proper skin maintenance will catch up with you over the years. For the best long-term skin health, it’s important to begin a comprehensive skin care regimen in your teens. But, especially as you get on in years, the key to a smooth, freshly polished face and body is exfoliation! You may know them as body or facial scrubs but in the skin care industry, they’re known as exfoliants, and making them a regular part of your skin care ritual can rewind aging skin to youthful radiance. The gentle and all natural exfoliation products available in our IHT organic skin care store are the perfect skin smoothies for your skin to drink in and lift the fog to your sunniest, softest skin hiding beneath!

Skin Science 101 – Exfoliation

Your skin is continuously producing new skin cells, which travel from the lower layer to the outer layer of the epidermis. The new skin cells gradually die as they rise to the surface, becoming saturated with keratin in the process. These keratin-saturated cells are essential for a youthful, dewy appearance, and they are constantly sloughing off in order to make room for even fresher cells. With age, though, this process slows, and the older skin cells become clogged on the surface. Exfoliation should be your first step in any skin care regimen. After cleansing, exfoliate – to clear away dry, rough skin cells in order to reveal the younger, softer skin cells beneath. After proper exfoliation, your skin becomes more easily penetrated by any other product you use to improve or protect it. That’s because exfoliating removes the surface layer of dead cells that can limit how much of your moisturizer, night cream, beauty serum, sunscreen or other lotion gets through. Exfoliated skin breathes better, looks more refreshed and shows fewer lines and wrinkles. When you exfoliate, your softest and most radiant skin has the chance to shine through. Out with the old and in with the new, rejuvenated skin! Check out IHT’s full selection of organic exfoliants in our online shop.

Let’s Face It, Your Body Needs Exfoliating, Too!

Exfoliating is an essential part of any facial skin care regimen. But the rest of your skin needs exfoliating, too. Facial scrubs are formulated for the delicate skin on your face, and generally aren’t powerful enough to exfoliate the skin on other parts of your body. That’s why it is so important to use an exfoliant designed for the body. IHT offers a variety of body scrubs that gently slough away all of those toxins and dead skin cells to reveal the softer, smoother skin beneath. Keep all of your skin healthy with IHT’s exfoliation products.

IHT has all the exfoliating products you need to keep your face and body healthy – and touchably soft. Our exfoliants are categorized on our website to make it very easy to find exactly what you’re looking for. Don’t skip the important exfoliation phase of your skin care regimen. Exfoliate a couple of times a week and you will notice a huge difference in the texture of your skin. Find out what a little sloughing and buffing action from the right exfoliation products can do for your skin!
