Exfoliants

Over time, the skin's ability to shed the buildup of unhealthy, dead layers of skin decelerates. Using an exfoliant can mitigate this outcome by being applied to the skin frequently. Exfoliants, such as the ones detailed below, work to dissolve dry skin cells, smooth rough, bumpy skin and bring clarity to an uneven skin tone.

Hair Removal

Various forms of hair removal have been practiced for cultural, medical, and religious reasons in almost all human cultures since at least the Neolithic era. Waxing, sugaring, and similar hair removal techniques are all a form of semi-permanent hair removal that vary only slightly in their formulas. Sucrose, polymers, and soy are three ingredients that are making a big difference in the hair removal industry.

Moisturizers

Moisturizers were invented to combat sun damage, which causes the skin to dry out, crack, and age quicker. Moisturizers have evolved over the years, but recently have gone back to their original roots by incorporating ingredients that were being used many years ago in the skin care industry again. Shea butter, aloe vera, and peptides are each making a big difference in modern moisturizers.

Essential Oils

The use of herbs and plants such as lavender, cinnamon, and manuka for medicinal purposes dates back to ancient times. With the natural trend gaining popularity with consumers, clients are looking to natural applications of plants, such as essential oils and aromatherapy, as alternatives to the treatments of a wide variety of skin conditions.

Beauty Products

People have been concerned with beauty since the beginning of time! While Cleopatra is famous for her milk baths, she was not the only one; according to Pliny the Elder, Emperor Nero's wife washed her face with donkey's milk seven times a day to erase wrinkles and maintain the whiteness of her face.
