Over time, the elements that our skin is exposed to will take its toll.  Stress, pollution, toxins, and sunlight will leave their mark. 

These elements are known as free radicals, and they are responsible for skin damage and aging.  Free radicals are responsible for destroying the chemical makeup of our skin cells and this prevents them from functioning properly, causing the skin to deteriorate.



As professional skin caretakers, we teach exfoliation methods for removing dead skin cells and exposing fresh healthy skin.  But there is more to caring for skin than just exfoliation.  Healing the tissues and providing protection is just as, if not more, important. Antioxidants are the main weapon to treat free radical damage.  Antioxidants are found in a variety of forms and will work to neutralize free radicals to restore and protect the skin from further damage.  This is why we are so excited to offer a special on the HydraFacial MD Treatment at About Face Skin Care this month.
