What is exfoliation?

What is exfoliation?

Exfoliation is touted as a quick and easy way to give skin that longed-for glow.
Your skin naturally sheds dead skin cells to make room for new cells every 30 days or so.
Sometimes, dead cells don’t shed completely. This can result in dry, flaky patches and clogged pores. Exfoliating can help prevent this.

The process — which involves removing dead skin cells — can reduce dullness and even improve skin tone and conditions like acne.
In a nutshell, the number of times you exfoliate each week depends on your skin type and what you’re trying to achieve.

Humans lose around 500 million skin cells every day, meaning dead skin can build up pretty quickly.
Many think that weekly exfoliation is enough, and it’s a good starting point for a newbie.

Regular exfoliation can also help prevent clogged pores, resulting in fewer breakouts.
Long-term exfoliating can increase collagen production. Collagen is key to glowing, vibrant skin. The protein also promotes skin elasticity, minimizing the appearance of fine lines and related sagging.
