The importance of exfoliation
Anyone who's ever been to a spa knows that exfoliation is an important part of any self-care routine. But why is it so important? Let's take a closer look at the science of exfoliation.
Exfoliation is the process of removing dead skin cells from the surface of the skin. This can be done mechanically, with a scrub or our African exfoliating net, or chemically, with an acid peel. Either way, the result is the same: softer, smoother, more youthful-looking skin.
But exfoliation isn't just about vanity. Dead skin cells can build up on the surface of the skin and clog pores, leading to breakouts. Exfoliating regularly helps to keep pores clear and prevent acne.
In addition, exfoliation stimulates cell turnover, which is the process by which new skin cells are generated. This helps to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and gives skin a overall more youthful appearance.
So go ahead and add exfoliation to your beauty routine. Your skin will thank you for it!
