Skin Care Basics

Discover the power of exfoliation to produce more collagen and elastin in the dermal layer. Find out why more water and less UV exposure are key functions of all ARTISTRY® products for all skin types. Learn why smaller pore size around the eyes and increased nighttime cell renewal will change your moisturizing regime forever.

Skin cell turnover naturally slows with age. Learn how you can promote cell turnover and enjoy more youthful, healthier skin with the use of AHAs and natural exfoliants. Did you know that skin cells renewal occurs faster at night time than day time? Discover the importance of moisturizing your skin to encourage this renewal process.


  1. Your skin is composed of two main layers, the epidermis and the dermis. The epidermis, or outer layer of the skin, is a tough, protective layer. The dermis, or inner layer, is thicker than the epidermis and provides your skin its strength and elasticity. The dermis houses fibroblast cells which are responsible for producing collagen and elastin. Exfoliation and increased cell turnover trigger these cells to jump into action, thereby stimulating collagen and elastin production for more youthful looking skin.
  2. 90% of aging is the result of UV exposure! Only 10% is caused by natural aging. Protect your skin all year long with sunscreen.
  3. Your body – and ALL types of skin – needs water to survive. Water is a key ingredient of our ARTISTRY products, especially moisturizers.
  4. Skin cell turnover naturally slows with age. You can promote cell turnover and more youthful and healthier looking skin with the use of natural exfoliants.
  5. Skin cells repair at night, making it essential to using a night time moisturizer to enhance this benefit.
  6. The skin around your eyes is delicate and thinner, making specialized eye care essential.
