Know Your Skin at Zen Skincare and Waxing, Asheville NC

Skin is made from 3 layers of tissue: the epidermis, the dermis and the subcutaneous layer. One full skin cycle is the time it takes for new cells to be generated at the bottom of the epidermis and rise to the surface of the skin, to eventually be shed off. This process can take from 28 days to 6 weeks.

This is why we say your should try a product for about a month because of the constant renewal process of skin. Products will absorb into the epidermis and affect the deeper, newer cells, so when they finally reach the outermost layer you’ll be able to see what the effect, if any, will be.

Ingredient of the Day - Squalane

Not to be confused with squalEne, which is a more unstable version. Squalane oil is created from hydrogenated squalene oil, becoming a saturated oil and making it less susceptible to oxidation.

Because it is produced naturally in the body, Squalane oil is suitable for ALL skin types, from dry to acne-prone. Squalane has the ability to completely penetrate the skin, making it a superlative moisturizer.
