Exfoliation is the removal of dead cells on the skin’s surface in order to uncover new cells and improve overall complexion. It can be performed mechanically or chemically. Regular exfoliation can improve the ability of skin to absorb your skin care products, resulting in a more rejuvenated appearance. Your skin cells undergo a natural turnover every month or so. When this occurs, the outer layer of your skin (the epidermis) sheds and reveals new skin underneath (the dermis). However, sometimes dead skin cells don’t fully shed, creating the appearance of rough, dry skin, enlarged pores and dullness. You can improve your skin’s tone and texture by exfoliating.
