Epidermal Exfoliation and Skin Cell Renewal

Effective skincare needs to target the epidermis so understanding how this layer of skin functions is key to recognising what skincare should achieve. Cells of the epidermis are constantly dividing to produce new cells. These new cells replace those in the upper layers every 30 days. This renewal process describes our body’s natural ability to exfoliate the skin and make new healthy young skin cells. The integrity of the epidermis, particularly its outer layer, is necessary for healthy, optimal functioning skin.

After the age of 20, the skin’s renewal process slows and occurs closer to every 60 days. As a result, your skin and complexion appears duller as pores enlarge, congestion increases and patchy, flaky skin become more prevalent. Skins light reflectivity reduces giving a lacklustre looking skin. Therefore, we need to increase the skin’s metabolic rate in order to generate fresh skin cells for healthy, radiant, blemish-free, youthful skin. Increasing the metabolic rate means that more new cells are produced and old dead cells removed. 

Today we have the benefits of dermatological science and technology to support the fundamentals of skin physiology. Both Lumi and, Dr Natasha Cook have active skincare to give you a refreshed and revitalised look. Dr Natasha Cook's CONCENTRATED CLARIFIER and CONCENTRATED MICROPEEL contain clinical strength Alpha and Beta Hydroxy Acids to effectively assist exfoliation and cell renewing to help maintain youthful, high-functioning skin. Lactic acid is the primary AHA in our formulations because it is highly effective with low irritancy.

Reduce Sun Damage.... #skinbykarenstrachan™

Best ways to repair sun-damage?

  • Sunscreen - Start using a good quality broad spectrum sunscreen every day to allow the skin to start repairing itself..it prevents pigmentation, burst capillaries and uneven skin tone, it will prevent large pores and saggy skin by preventing the breakdown of collagen from sun exposure. .Our favourite at Luminosity is Actinica SPF 50+. It has a lovely matt finish which sits under foundation really well.
  • Frac 3 Laser Therapy - safe for all skin types and is clinically proven to stimulate collagen, promote healing and hydration and gives the skin an incredible lustre without downtime.
  • Eye Serum -  I believe we should start with an eye cream as early as 20. The skin around the eyes is much finer and has less oil glands so we need a specific eye treatment to keep this skin supple and moist so as to prevent fine lines and crepiness, Lumi's am pm eye serum is the ideal product for this.
  • Exfoliate the skin - How often should you exfoliate your skin? It really depends on your skin type and specific conditions. I would say usually two to three times per week with an Dr Natasha Cook Clarifier and also recommend using the exfoliating Lumi cleanser twice daily as well. This cleanser has an AHA such as lactic acid to chemically exfoliate the skin and promote hydration. 
  • Anti-oxidant serum - Lumi CoQ10 - layered under your sunscreen during the day. Use a Retinol / Vitamin A serum at night to stimulate collagen production and refine the texture of your skin.
