Our skin is the largest organ in our bodies and also the first tell tale sign of our aging. The process of cell regeneration slows down as we age, especially skin cells. When the body is slower to shed skin cells and generate new ones, the excessive dead skin laying on the surface can leave skin looking dull, rough, dry, unhealthy or wrinkled. Additionally, the build-up of dead skin cells can result in excess oil that clogs our pores, leading to blemishes and problematic skin condition.
Proper exfoliation removes the barrier of dead skin cells, grease and impurities from the surface of the skin and speeds up the skin renewal process. It increases the blood circulation, bringing more oxygen and nutrients to the skin cells therefore improving the skin tone. Skin after exfoliation is most effective in absorbing treatments like moisturizers and essential oils.
