What is exfoliating?
Exfoliation in removal of dead skin cells. When you get rid of all the dead cells on the surface, you expose the new and radiant skin beneath.
How frequently to exfoliate?
If you’ve got sensitive or delicate skin, twice a week may be too much and might cause some irritation. On the other hand, if you live in a warmer climate or your skin is naturally oily, you might have to exfoliate your skin over twice a week to accommodate a higher build up of dead skin cells.
How to exfoliate?
Follow directions. If it says to remove the mask after two to five minutes, don’t keep it on for ten. AHA’s penetrate very quickly, so by the time your mask is removed it will still be working at deeper layers. Make certain you not keep products on your skin for any longer than recommended!
Why do we will need to exfoliate?
Skin is continually turning over, producing new cells in the lower level (the dermis) and sending them up to replace dead skin cells on the top layer (epidermis). As we get older, the cell turnover process slows down. Cells begin to gather unevenly on the skin’s surface which can result in dry stains and tired looking skin. Through exfoliating your skin, we can help to remove dead skin cells, revealing the fresher, younger cells restoring skin’s natural brightness and clarity.
It is entirely up to you! Some folks prefer to exfoliate their face in the mornings since they claim that make up stays better. Others would rather prefer to exfoliate their body and face in the evening to get rid of dead skin cells and dirt. So really, just select an appropriate time for you provided that you exfoliate!
