Benefits of Exfoliation

Most skin types can benefit from regular exfoliation, which is the removal of the oldest, dead skin cells on the skin's outermost surface. Exfoliation speeds up cell turnover rate, which becomes slower with the aging process.
The average cell turnover rates:
Babies ~ 14 days
Teens ~ 21-28 days
Adults ~ 28-42 days
50+ ~ 42-84 days

In order to help preserve skin health, keeping the cell mitosis going is a beneficial skincare goal.

Some of the benefits of exfoliation include:

  • Improves skin's appearance
  • Lightens pigmented areas
  • Softens rough skin
  • Heals areas prone to breakouts
  • Helps maintain hydration level of the epidermis
  • Allows skin to absorb products more easily
