ExfoliationExfoliation reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Unless you have extremely oily skin, daily exfoliation is not necessary. Once or twice per week is sufficient. Most experts agree that you should exfoliate at night, so that your skin has time to rejuvenate while you sleep. Proper exfoliation can also help clear acne and other skin blemishes. After cleansing your face, it should feel clean and fresh. There are several reasons to exfoliate the skin.
- An abnormal build up of dead skin cells on the surface of the skin (stratum corneum) affect skin permeability and may hinder the absorption of moisturizers or topical medications.
- Loosening both dead cells build up on the skin’s surface and the impacted dead cells inside the follicle from becoming clogged.
- Exfoliating dead skin cells helps the skin look healthier, smoother and improves overall glow.
