Exfoliation involves the removal of the oldest dead skin cells on the skin’s outermost surface. Exfoliation basically refers to all facials, during microdermabrasion or chemical peels.
Exfoliating often described as “skin turnover,” is the process of removing dead skin cells from the surface of your skin using a chemical, a granular substance or an exfoliating tool.
It’s very important to exfoliate for multiple reasons, some of which include;
1. Exfoliating Removes Dead Skin Cells
Moisturising is often the first defence against ageing as it stops dead skin cells from leaving the face. However, more than often, moisturising allows the dead cells at the skin’s top layer to stay a little longer. This allows your skin to look radiant and full of moisture instead of dry and scaly.
2. Keeps Blemishes And Spots Under Control
Ever wondered what the major causes of spots and blemishes are? then you should know that dead skin cells play a significant role. Acne, blackheads are caused by dead skin cells. Dead skin is a playground for bacteria so that it wouldn’t be wrong to say that bacteria parties in full force on dead skin.
3. Increases Blood Flow And Circulation
In much simpler terms, exfoliating gets the skin’s “juices” going. That is, it ensures the blood circulates regularly to provide the surface with the nutrients it needs while also removing other excesses. Just like exercises, exfoliating stimulates blood circulation allowing your skin to look radiant and healthy.
4. Stops Pores From Growing
It is impossible to shrink skin pores, but you can stop them from getting more significant. As one gets older, one’s pores become more significant as the skin builds up in the pores. The more there are dead skin cell in the pores, the bigger they become.
