Approximately every 28 days we create a new layer of skin. As new cells form they push their way to the surface and then dead cells settle on the surface. This can cause enlarged pores, clogged pores, a bumpy uneven texture. and a dull appearance. As we age this process slows down leading to the appearance of older skin with less radiance. Suitable to those who has sensitive skin.
