* Exfoliating your skin can really help in the rejuvenating your skin. Do so at least twice a week using the appropriate exfoliating products according to the skin type like face scrubs, exfoliating face masques.

* Peels can really help breaking the toughest layers of dead skin, we recommend a gentle peel with the quinoa husk extract (super food) which is known for ultimate exfoliating properties, gentle on skin, safe for acne prone and even sensitive skin types.

* Antioxidants can really help in rejuvenation of skin cells. Pure vitamin C in the serums and moisturisers rejuvenates skin and known for other benefits like boosting collagen and elastin production in your skin, protection from free radicals.
