Your skin is a pretty smart organ that is constantly adapting and renewing itself. As skin cells age they push upward towards the surface of the skin until they naturally shed and fall away. However, sometimes due to environmental and lifestyle impacts, our skin can do with a helping hand to remove these old cells.
Exfoliation is the removal of lifeless cells from the skin’s surface. This process should instantly reveal smoother, fresher and healthier looking skin, while also helping to make other products more effective.
Exfoliation is important for both our face and our body, but if it’s not done properly, it can do more harm than good. If we go overboard this can irritate, dry and thin the skin.
So where do you start and what’s the best approach for you?
Well firstly, it’s good to understand the two types of exfoliation – chemical and physical.
