The Importance of Exfoliating Your Skin

Fresh FaceThe skin is the largest organ of the body, though incredibly resilient , it is important that you take care of it regularly. The elements you are exposed to on a daily basis can wreak havoc. The key to looking your best, fighting the war on aging and achieving the youthful, fresh glow your skin once projected is regular a professional exfoliation treatment, like microdermabrasion.

Why exfoliating is important:

Only a handful of people are aware dead skin cells make up the entire top layer of your skin. With exfoliation, the dead skin on the surface unveil a rejuvenated and luminous layer beneath it. You body naturally sheds millions of dead skin cells daily to allow new cells to appear on the surface as old cells flake off. Since the process is slow, even slower in older age, the buildup accrued from the remaining dead cells on the surface develops into keratin.

While keratin protects your skin from damaging substances and infections, too much buildup is counterproductive. If you find yourself with dull, sluggish looking skin, you have accumulated a myriad of dead skin cells that causes uneven skin tone, clogged pores and other signs of aging.

 Some benefits from exfoliation:

  • Slows down the aging process: Exfoliating softens wrinkles and fine lines, clears roughly textured skin, minimizes pore size and reduces the appearance of age spots.
  • Rehydrates dry skin: Dead skin cells actually prevent absorption from heavy lotions and creams. Sloughing off dry and flaky skin and moisturizing the newest layer of skin cells results in elastic, velvety and supple skin.
  • Prevents and erases acne: Most acne products destroy bacteria while drying out the skin, because they are harsh and create an excess of dry skin.
  • Assists skincare products and makeup to work better: Begin with a smooth base before you apply your products. With properly exfoliated skin, you create the illusion of silky skin and avoid cakey looking makeup.
