Your body can become unhealthy due to several internal and external factors: bad diet, pollutants such as free radicals, oxidative stress and also excessive sun exposure.
These factors will ultimately lead to the cellular turnover slowing down and the skin not functioning optimally. This will result in a build-up of dead skin cells on the surface of the skin, dehydration, congestion and premature signs of aging. Indications that the skin requires a detox include excess sebum, breakouts, and an uneven and dull complexion.
Our skin is the largest organ of the body; being on the exterior and protecting us from the outer environment means that it is constantly subjected to elements that speed up the aging process. However, it is not just external factors such as UV rays and pollutants that cause our skin to age but also intrinsic factors such as: genes and hormones.
These factors culminate in our skin becoming functionally and intrinsically aged.
Cellular Turnover is the process in which our skin produces new skin cells and is a major factor in how our skin looks and feels.
Treating pigmentation is not an easy feat, because pigmentation is not a simple skin disorder.
