Exfoliation – The Secret to Anti-aging
Hi everyone! It’s the end of summer and the perfect time to rejuvenate your skin for the holidays. Let’s talk about the importance of exfoliation. Exfoliating removes dead cells from the uppermost layer of skin to reveal the fresher, younger skin underneath. Sloughing off these dead cells evens skin tone, removes pore-clogging dirt and oil, helps prevent acne and….the most important, prevents aging and gives your skin a healthy glow!!
There are two types of exfoliation, physical and chemical. Physical exfoliation is performed via microdermabrasion, dermaplaning, using your Clairsonic brush with physical agents to scrub off dead cells.
The second type is chemical exfoliation. Chemical exfoliates are a topical bio engineered ingredient that dissolve the glue like substance that holds the dead cells together. Most chemical exfoliates use either Alpha Hydroxy Acids or Beta Hydroxy Acids. This type of exfoliation is applied to the skin then rinsed off. You do not “scrub” to enjoy the benefits. The “chemical” does the work.

Every 28 days skin renews itself leaving your skin with a fresh layer of baby cells. As we get older this shedding process, called desquamation, slows down leaving us with fine lines, dry areas and an uneven skin texture.
Exfoliation stimulates new cell growth by removing the cells your body is no longer shedding. It helps your body with the desquamation process by stripping the dead epidermal cells on the outer surface of your skin and exposing a fresher layer of living cells.
