As we age, we all want that young looking skin that we had when we were young! Just as younger people tend to move quicker than older people, younger skin regenerates more quickly than older skin.
But, we also want that youthful regeneration! One great way to achieve faster regeneration is through EXFOLIATION.
A gentle exfoliation should be done approximately 2 times per week to remove the top layers of the Epidermis. The top two layers of the epidermis are made up of dead skin cells, and exfoliating them regularly brings new fresh cells to the top of the skin surface.
Regular exfoliation has a number of benefits for maintaining beautiful and youthful skin:
It removes the upper dead layers of the skin which can make skin look dry and dull.
It helps to keep pores cleansed and unblocked to prevent breakouts and blackheads.
Exfoliation encourages skin cells to regenerate more quickly by bringing fresh circulation to your skin and encouraging faster cell turnover.
It helps skin serums to penetrate more deeply down to the dermis where new collagen can be formed. The increased collagen then prevents wrinkles and firms the skin.
Exfoliation helps skin spots fade more quickly by removing the top layers of the skin.
But, it is equally important to use gentle NON-CHEMICAL and NON-TOXIC scrubs when exfoliating. One of my favorites is Beauty By Earth’s Facial Scrub.
