Exfoliation is the process of removing the outermost layer of dead skin cells either manually or chemically. Exfoliating with harsh chemicals such as AHAs and manually exfoliating with abrasive materials can actually speed up the process of aging, instead of halt it.
Telomeres, the section of DNA found at the end of chromosomes, protect the genetic information during replication and keep the ends of the chromosome from fraying. When your cell replicate, your telomeres shorten with each replication. Many scientists believe that telomeres are the key to anti-aging and lengthening telomeres will keep skin looking young and fresh. When you force your skin cells into a new cycle with extensive exfoliation, your telomeres shorten prematurely, and eventually your chromosome cannot replicate anymore and enter a senescence state, or ‘state of being old.’
Here at Elysee, we’ve made it our mission to preserve telomere length with our products while helping to keep your skin looking young and vibrant. You may ask: How do we do that while also helping you slough off your dead skin cells and keeping pores clear?
