The importance of regularly exfoliating your skin:
Did you know that your skin cells turnover every 28 days? As we age this rate decreases and this is what makes our skin look dull, uneven, with fine lines and wrinkles. Exfoliation helps remove these dead skin cells, rejuvenates the skin making it look a lot more even, brighter, softer and rejuvenated. Regular exfoliation also stimulates collagen synthesis and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, whilst improving the texture of the skin. Exfoliation also opens the way for your skincare products to penetrate more deeply into the skin, which makes them more effective.
Key things to remember about exfoliation in melanin rich skin:
Gentleness is the key word here! Our melanin rich skin is prone to post inflammatory hyperpigmentation and weakened skin barrier. Therefore one should exercise extreme caution with regards to harsh exfoliators or scrubs, especially ones with granules or high acids content. The key is to be as gentle as possible with your melanin-rich skin.
We have been hard at work at Uso Skincare, researching and developing an alternate, safer and more controlled option for melanin-rich skin. We are so excited to introduce to you an alternate approach to exfoliation, using Exfoliating Enzymes!
What is an Exfoliating Enzyme?
This is a natural, safe, effective but non-abrasive enzyme based exfoliating system consisting of fruit enzymes, papaya and bromelyn(derived from pineapple). This formulation is all natural, vegan and environmentally friendly. We incorporated the best of what nature offers to showcase the beauty of science for African skin!

With frequent use it will increase product penetration, improve texture and radiance. With continuous use, this product will provide collagen stimulation, skin renewal and anti-inflammatory benefits while helping to unclog pores.
