Let's Talk Skin Cells

Let's Talk Skin Cells

Skin cells: we often mention them and know they're important, but what's really behind these tiny building blocks of beauty?

If we peel back the layers, we can literally see the magic unfolding beneath our skin's surface. The outermost layer, the epidermis, is bustling with keratinocytes that craft a protective barrier of keratin, defending against everyday environmental challenges. Dive deeper to the dermis, and you’ll find not only the sturdy fibers of connective tissue and collagen but also melanocytes, which paint our skin with color and shield it from the sun’s rays. Nestled further down, the subcutaneous layer provides a cozy blanket of fat and connective tissues, ensuring our skin stays nourished and resilient. Each layer is vital, teeming with cells that contribute to our skin’s health and glow.

After understanding the layers and cells that make up our skin, let’s talk about how we can nurture them with specific Leahlani Skincare products. Each is designed to support and enhance the natural functions of your skin cells.

Aqua A – HPR Retinoid

Our gentle yet powerful retinoid works wonders by communicating with keratinocytes in the epidermis. Aqua A helps accelerate cell turnover, bringing fresh, new cells to the surface faster. This not only smooths and refines the skin’s texture but also helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, giving your skin a youthful, vibrant glow

Honey Love Exfoliator

This exfoliant goes beyond the surface with fine corundum crystals that manually remove dead skin cells from the epidermis. By doing so, Honey Love not only clears the way for new cells to emerge but also stimulates the dermis to rev up collagen production. The result? A smoother, firmer, and more radiant complexion that feels as lovely as it looks.

Leahlani Toners with Aloe and Sea Silt

Dive deep into hydration with our toners, which feature aloe and Hawaiian sea silt. The sea silt enhances aquaporin expression in skin cells, which are proteins that act as channels to shuttle moisture between cells. This advanced hydration technology reaches even the deeper layers of the skin, ensuring thorough moisture that leaves your skin soft, plump, and intensely hydrated.
