Your skin is your body’s largest organ and is constantly in the process of changing and renewing. New skin cells are found in the lower layer of the skin, which is called the dermis. They then travel to the top of the skin which can then build up giving the skin a rough and dry look.
Skin exfoliation will help remove dead skin cells from the surface of your skin and help prevent your pores from becoming clogged. Clogged pores can result in blackheads and if you suffer from problem skin, such as acne then this can increase your chances of having a breakout dramatically.
The renewal process of dead skin cells can speed up with skin exfoliation, which will leave you with glowing healthy skin. This can also help with fine lines and wrinkles.
When choosing a skin exfoliation you will find that there are many to choose from.
Some exfoliators contain natural abrasive ingredients such as cornmeal and rice grains. Some of the exfoliators are made with particles that may have sharper edges, such as apricot pits, if you suffer from sensitive and problem skin then you should avoid these skin exfoliators, as they will do more harm than good.
A good skin exfoliation product should contain AHA, in addition to removing dead skin cells it will also help to prevent acne, so this is a must ingredient if you suffer from problem skin. It will also help maintain a smoother skin surface.
Skin exfoliation should be done at least twice a week, along with your regular skincare routine.
