Regain Beautiful and Healthy Skin with Exfoliation

Updated: May 1

Our skin renews itself every month by shedding dead skin cells. These cells naturally detach from the surface of the epidermis to give way to new ones that form from deep within. If these dead cells do not detach they may accumulate on the surface. In turn, resulting in the appearance of a dull, rough, lackluster complexion.

The removal of dry dead skin cells on the surface of the epidermis is called exfoliation. Once this barrier of dead cells is removed, the skin is able to better absorb daily skincare treatments such as serums, oils and creams.

Many skin concerns can be significantly improved through exfoliation:

Wrinkles

With age cell renewal slows down. This means that the formation of new cells declines. The natural elimination of dead skin cells becomes more difficult. Thus, the accumulation of dead cells intensifies in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. These are especially noticeable around the eye areas. Exfoliation helps revitalize cell renewal and gradually smoothen the complexion to reduce the appearance of wrinkles.

Pigmentation Spots

Pigmentation spots often occur over time as the result of repeated sun exposure or during hormonal fluctuations. Exfoliation is ideal for removing pigmentation cells and for encouraging the formation of new cells. Combined with lightening treatments, exfoliation reduces the appearance of pigmentation spots.

Dry Skin

Before applying a moisturizer on dry skin, it is imperative to exfoliate! Otherwise, only dead skin cells will hydrate and your moisturizer will lose all of its effectiveness.

Dull and Irregular Complexion

Did you know that dead skin cells do not reflect the light? This is why your skin can lack radiance. Exfoliation gives way to younger skin cells that are able to reflect light for a more uniform and radiant complexion full of vitality.

Pores, Blackheads and Acne

During cell renewal, dead cells sometimes have difficulty detaching and therefore accumulate in the pores. Surrounded by sebum, these dead cells obstruct the pores and contribute to the formation of comedones or acne pimples. Exfoliation prevents the appearance of comedones and acne lesions by helping to evacuate dead cells and sebum. By doing so it improves dilated pores and absorbs excess sebum.
