Q: Should I still be using a gentle exfoliator?
A: You do not need to use any exfoliator. This is because Restorsea’s proprietary and patented enzyme, Aquabeautine XL®, is a gentle exfoliator. Note, however, that it only exfoliates dead skin, leaving living skin cells untouched. Mother Nature is amazing in that it created this enzyme in order for the baby salmon to get out of its egg shell. Unlike a chicken that can physically peck its way out of its egg shell, a baby salmon needs assistance, as its egg shell is very tough. As a result, when it is ready to be born, it releases an enzyme which dissolves its egg shell (dead skin) enabling it to swim away unharmed. When this enzyme is applied to human skin, it similarly dissolves only the dead skin cells. The result is constant exfoliation without the side effects of traditional exfoliants, which work by burning through both living and dead skin cells resulting in thinning, red skin that is sensitive to light.
