What is exfoliation?
It is the removing of the dead skin cells that form at the skin's outermost surface.
It is also a very important part of facial and body care!Why do we need to exfoliate?
The skin is constantly generating new skin cells at the lower layer (the dermis) and sending them to the surface (the epidermis). As the cells rise to the surface they gradually die and become filled with keratin. These keratinized skin cells are essential because they give our skin its protective quality. But they are constantly sloughing off to make way for younger cells.
As we age the process of cell turnover slows down. Cells start to pile up unevenly on the skin's surface, giving it a dry, rough, dull appearance. Exfoliation is beneficial because it removes those cells that are clinging on, revealing the fresher, younger skin cells below.
It is possible, however, to overexfoliate, especially on the delicate skin of the face. Overexfoliating will dry and irritate the skin.
*Quote from spas.about.com* What should one be careful about exfoliation?
- Overexfoliation! If you overdo it, it will cause your thin and aging skin to become thinner and aged faster! o.OWorry of choosing the right scrub for your skin?
