Tips to Reveal a Brighter, Healthier Complexion Through Exfoliation

Exfoliation is an important step in any facial or at-home skin care routine. The problem is that many are either over exfoliating or not exfoliating enough. 

What is Exfoliation

For a recap, exfoliation is the process of removing dead skin cells from the outer layer of the skin through the use of exfoliating scrubs, chemical peels, or abrasive materials such as a wash cloth or facial gauze.

The benefits of exfoliation include:

  • Removal of dry, flaky skin
  • Unblocks clogged pores
  • Reveals newer, fresher looking skin
  • Smooths away rough textures
  • Improves the look of uneven skin tone and discoloration
  • Speeds up the body's cell turnover
  • Allows for deeper penetration of skin care products

For most skin types exfoliating at least once or twice a week is optimal. More than that can lead to irritation and potentially compromise the skin barrier. 

While many of us at at home trying to "flatten the curve" it is a great time to give your skin care routine a boost, or at least maintain the care that you'll be missing from your favorite facialist or esthetician.
