If you’re noticing more dark spots, wrinkles, sagging, enlarged pores, or uneven tones, your skin is acting old.
It doesn’t have to, though!
You can trick yourself into younger-acting skin. And younger-acting skin means skin that’s firmer, has fewer dark spots, smaller pores, and a more even tone.
The secret to younger skin is…
Cell turnover is the rate at which your body replaces older skin cells with younger cells.
The process of replacing older skin cells goes on without any effort or thought on our part. But as we age, the process of shedding older skin cells slows down a bit. This causes the older skin cells to accumulate on the topmost layers, causing wrinkles, dullness, uneven tone, and sagging.
Just below the surface of your skin are millions of YOUNGER skin cells!
When you’re young, your skin naturally sloughs away the dead skin cells that build up. This process happens much faster when you’re younger and keeps revealing smooth, youthful skin.
For babies, cellular turnover happens about every 3-5 days. This constant turnover keeps young skin looking plump, radiant, even-toned, and wrinkle-free.
As you age, cellular turnover slows down.
In your teens, it takes 10-21 days for your younger cells to reach the topmost layer of your skin and by your 30s, it’s 28-45 days. In your 40s, it takes 45-60 days for those younger cells to appear, and 60-90 days when you’re in your 50s!
This slowdown in turnover isn’t the kiss of death (or a lifetime sentence to endless wrinkles) that it sounds like. You can help to speed this up a bit.
So, what can you do? How do you help your skin shed those older, dead cells sooner?
Exfoliation is magic. It helps rid your skin of older cells so that the newer, younger cells are visible.
Gently removing these layers of old cells will also help your skincare products by allowing them easier access to the deeper layers of your skin.
And it will keep your pores from becoming clogged, which leads to blackheads, breakouts, and bigger looking pores.
Exfoliation Is Misunderstood
Because many exfoliating products use harsh ingredients and some exfoliating methods are just rough on your skin, exfoliation is typically recommended for occasional use only. Some experts encourage you to exfoliate once per week, or less.
To reap the benefit of younger looking skin, exfoliation needs to be a nightly ritual.
Gentle exfoliators, like the LuxeOrganix ReNew Exfoliating Face Mask Polishing Scrub, are uniquely positioned to deliver dramatic results.
Exfoliating with gentle products nightly, allows the dead cells to be whisked away and the nightly repair that your skin undergoes will push your younger cells to the surface of your skin as you sleep. Nightly exfoliation speeds up the regular turnover of your cells.
It’s called Beauty Sleep for a reason!
ReNew Face Mask Polishing scrub is made with organic and natural ingredients that actually help your skin reveal its youthful glow.
As a polishing scrub, the AHA glycolic acid works on the surface of the skin to reduce the appearance of uneven texture, while bamboo and walnut create the ideal blend of small and large grit to instantly polish away dull, dry skin, blemishes, and dead skin cells.
And as a face mask, powerhouse ingredients like Turmeric and Australian Kakadu Plum with Vitamin C brighten and balance your skin, without stripping moisture and essential oils. Brightening means those age spots and uneven tones will fade, and not stripping essential oils means your skin will be soft and smooth, naturally.

GENTLE and POWERFUL so you can exfoliate every day for a dramatic change in your skin.
Ancient Skincare Secrets
Even the Queen of the Nile knew about exfoliating!
Cleopatra was famously one of ancient Egypt’s most beautiful women. She was known for her radiant skin.
It’s been said that this Queen had regular milk baths to maintain her youthful, glowing complexion.
It’s no surprise to us that milk was her beauty secret… Milk contains an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) called lactic acid, which exfoliates the skin.
Cleopatra used milk, we use glycolic acid — another AHA. Both AHAs leave your skin soft, beautiful, glowing, and younger looking.
Don’t you deserve to treat yourself like a Queen? Exfoliate more and leave your kingdom whispering about your beauty.
We won’t tell your secrets!
