Even if you keep your skin clean by washing regularly with a proven cleanser, if you’re not exfoliating, your skin may not be as healthy as it could be. Exfoliation is the process of removing dead skin cells on the surface of the skin by using either an abrasive scrub, which sluffs of the dead skin, a daily use product with fruit acids, a chemical peel or Microdermabrasion. Do this will help to revitalize dull, tired-looking skin.
Regular exfoliation provides a number of benefits.
1. Brighter, healthier looking skin
When dead skin cells begin to accumulate on the surface of your skin, this can leave your skin looking drab and dry. By removing these dead cells through exfoliation, you uncover new cells, which make your face and the rest of your body look brighter and healthier.
2. Improved skin texture
Does your skin have rough or dry spots? This may be because of an accumulation of dead skin cells in these areas. By sloughing off the dead cells through exfoliation, you’ll reveal the new cells underneath, leaving your skin smooth and even throughout.
3. Fight signs of aging
As we age, our skin’s natural ability to slough off dead cells decreases, leading to drier, rougher skin. Exfoliating once or twice a week, helps increase skin cell turnover rate and resurface the skin to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
4. Prevent future breakouts
When dead cells accumulate on the top of your skin, this can clog up pores. As a result, your skin may become oily, and this excess oil leads to blemishes and acne. Help prevent these breakouts by exfoliating your skin on a regular basis.
5. Improved skin care performance
Exfoliation naturally improves the performance of skin care treatments by removing penetration-blocking dead skin cells allowing for deeper penetration.
