why exfoliate?

Posted by - taylorstevenssalon1940

Exfoliation is a process that involves removing dead skin cells and if done correctly, it will leave skin feeling smoother and looking refreshed. In addition, exfoliation also primes skin, allowing moisturizers and serums to penetrate deeper.

Exfoliation is also an important part of any skin care regimen, since our skin is consistently regenerating. New skin cells are created and the old layers are pushed to the surface. These surface layers do break down, but often leave particles, traces of skin, and dead skin cells clinging to the surface. Exfoliation is crucial to removing these. By massaging the face with rougher particles, these dead skin cells are sloughed off the skin leaving the newer layer of skin to show and shine. Here are some of the benefits to exfoliation:

  • Speeds up the process of old skin flaking and shedding off
  • Improves complexion
  • Make skin feel and look brighter and smoother
  • Encourages the growth of new skin cells
  • Increases blood circulation
  • Brings a glow to the face
  • Improves skin texture and color
  • Removes skin blockages
  • Allows the face to maintain an adequate amount of oil
  • Gives the impression of erasing fine lines and wrinkles
  • Stimulates cellular renewal
  • Prevents breakouts
  • Removes toxins from skin
  • Skin preparations are absorbed more easily
