There are many terms thrown around in the beauty industry. Marketing distinctions, advertising claims and then there is the actual science behind how the products work. Sometimes the more scientific the term the more the marketing and advertising departments like it. That is not the case though with exfoliating.
Exfoliating your skin has many benefits to healthier, younger-looking skin. Before getting into the many benefits of exfoliating your skin, let’s make sure everyone is on the same page and understands what exfoliating means.
Exfoliating is the removal of the oldest dead skin cells from the outer most surface of the skin. Removal of these dead skin cells can be done mechanically, such as through the use of microdermabrasion, or through the use of a product like the Skindulgence Firming System. By removing the old dead skin cells from the outer surface of the skin, it allows newer cells to migrate to the surface.
The cells of the skin have an approximately 30-day cycle. New skin cells are created within the skin’s lower levels of the dermis. Through their cycle, they then migrate to the outer surface of the skin. It is during this “journey” the cells die and become saturated with a protein called keratin.
This protein is important to our skin as it helps to protect the skin from the elements we face every day. The keratin makes the cells acidic and through the ageing process, the erosion of the skin become less even, giving the skin a rough, dry texture. It is this appearance of the skin that most associate with “aged” skin.
By exfoliating the skin, it eliminates the uneven erosion of the skin by removing all the dead cells from the outer layer of the skin, revealing the newer skin beneath.
Now with a basic understanding of how exfoliating your skin works, you can start to understand the importance of exfoliating your skin on a regular basis. Not only does it unclog pores, but reduces acne outbreaks it also helps to keep your skin feeling and looking clean and healthy.
Through the use of the Skindulgence Firming Facial System, the hardening mask not only tightens and tones the skin but also exfoliates at the same time. Women and men globally reverse the effects of ageing by using a facial product 2-3 times per week.
In addition to looking younger, they are also getting the full benefits of exfoliating their skin.
