• The skin renews itself every 20 days in those between 15-20 years of age
• From the age of 30 onwards, the process is slower ,skin renewal taking place every 12 weeks :“ the sebaceous or oil producing glands become less active leading to dry skin”
• Skin conditioning is a process by which you remove the dead cells on the surface of your skin by a method known as exfoliation
• You should condition your skin for 6 weeks before any deeper peel or laser
