More about Facial Cleansing & Scrubs

In less than a month, a new skin cell will make its way to the surface where it will slough away leaving behind fresher, smoother skin. Unfortunately, anything that interferes with normal skin shedding will create a build-up of dead skin causing the skin to look dull, dry, and lackluster.

Exfoliating the skin helps slough off dead skin cells, stimulates circulation, removes dirt that clogs pores, smooths skin texture and tone, improves the ability of the skin to absorb moisture, and helps keep normal cell turnover going (especially as we age) to reveal new, fresh skin cells for a healthier, brighter more youthful appearance.

The purpose of exfoliation is not to get rid of all of the dead skin cells--we need them! Although the top layer of the epidermis is 'dead,' it is our first line of defense against outside elements. So gentle exfoliation is the key. 

Knowing why we should exfoliate is only the beginning of the story. It is equally important to know how. Choosing the wrong method can easily damage the skin.
