The Benefits of Exfoliating Scrubs
Facial scrubs or cleansers that contain exfoliates remove dead skin cells and other grime from the skin’s surface. If left unchecked, debris can build up on your skin’s surface. Dulling your complexion and clogging your pores (which leads to acne breakouts.)
Revitalizes Your Complexion
By exfoliating the top layer of dead skin cells you trigger the skin’s natural renewal process. It reveals the underlying layer of younger skin cells. Advanced Exfoliation immediately revitalizes your complexion. It helps your skin look more radiant and healthy. It can also reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and help pigmentation problems.
Enhancing the Effects of Skincare Products
Exfoliating enhances the effects of other ingredients found in high end facial cleansers. By unclogging pores and stripping the skin of dead and polluted skin cells, active ingredients are able to penetrate deeper into the skin, providing better results.
The Importance of Clearing Away Dead Skin
Our skin is constantly generating new cells at the lower layer (the dermis) and sending them to the surface (the epidermis). As the cells rise to the top, they gradually die and become filled with keratin, which gives our skin its protective quality. They are constantly sloughing off to make way for younger cells.
As we age the process of cell turnover slows down, and cells start to pile up unevenly on the skin’s surface, giving it a dry, rough, dull appearance. Advanced Exfoliation is beneficial because it removes those cells that are clinging on, revealing the fresher, younger skin cells below.
If your facial skin has a dull, pasty look, as it often does in older people who don’t exfoliate. A treatment routine that emphasizes gentle exfoliation will make you look younger. On the other hand, if a cloud of white particles fly into the air when you peel off your jeans. You might need a full body scrub to refresh all of your skin.
