Exfoliation is the process of using a chemical, granular substance, or exfoliation instrument to remove dead skin cells from the surface of your skin. Even though every 30 days, your skin naturally sheds old skin cells to create place for new ones, dead cells don't always shed fully. As a result, you can experience clogged pores and dry, flaky patches, dehydration, premature aging and more.
Regular exfoliation helps to keep your skin silky soft and smooth, increase your skin's radiance, reduce sun and dark spots, and increase hydration by buffing away and removing dead skin cells which allow your skin care products to absorb.
Why you need to exfoliate
Regular exfoliation is essential as it allows the removal of the top layers of the skin to readily allow the fresh skin to breathe and function without any unwanted barriers.
If you are not exfoliating regularity you may experience the following:
- Rough appearance or texture
- Acne or other breakouts
- Discoloration or uneven tone
- Sun and age spots
- Having dry, flaky, irritated skin
What are the benefits of exfoliating?
Exfoliating on a regular basis can improve the appearance of your skin in many ways.
Boosts Skin's Radiance
The natural process of skin renewal slows down as we get older, and when dead skin cells begin to accumulate, your skin will look dry, dull, and harsh. By releasing the connections that hold dead skin cells together, exfoliating aids in the removal of these cells while also promoting the rapid growth of new skin cells.
Improves Skin Hydration and Prevents Aging
If you are not regularity exfoliating, it's very likely your skin may be dehydrated. As layers of dead skin cells build up, it can be harder for your skin to absorb your skin care products. Exfoliating you will be able to remove away those dead skin cells that are preventing your skin from getting the moisture and full benefits of your hydrating Eminence Organics serums, oils, and moisturizers.
Reduces Appearance of Dark Spots
Often with age, dark pigmentation and spots appear on the skin. Exfoliating is very beneficial for brightening, reducing, and erasing these pigmented cells. By removing the build-up of dry skin, this helps to retain a healthy glow and smooth complexion.
A regular exfoliating routine can help unclog pores to minimize the formation of whiteheads and blackheads. This will also help to breakdown bacteria and speed up the production of new skin cells. Cleaning out pores will minimize their appearance, and makes you less prone to breakouts.
Improves Collagen Production
Exfoliation improves blood circulation which minimizes the appearance of cellulite, improves skin elasticity and will enhance your all over body glow and radiance. Long-term regular exfoliating will also increase collagen production. Collagen is key to glowing, vibrant skin. The protein also promotes skin elasticity, minimizing the appearance of fine lines and related sagging.
How often should I exfoliate?
It is recommended to exfoliate your skin 1-2 times per a week as part of your weekly skin care routine. Applying a masque to nourish your skin after exfoliation is also very beneficial.
