WHY IS EXFOLIATION IMPORTANT?
Exfoliation is one of the most important things you can do to resolve certain problems and achieve healthy and glowing skin. It is a skincare technique aimed at removing dead skin cells that cling to the skin’s outermost surface (epidermis). Exfoliation is the process of removing these outer layers and letting the newer skin shine through. If done correctly, it leaves the skin feeling smoother and fresher. Also, it prepares the skin to absorb in a better way any kind of substance you would like to apply like vitamins, revitalising or regenerating toners that will help improve your skin. It should always be done after cleansing the skin and can be done chemically or simply by scrubbing the skin with an abrasive.
SEARCHING FOR THE RIGHT EXFOLIATOR
1. Mechanical Exfoliation
During mechanical exfoliation, the dead skin cells are physically rubbed off with an abrasive, and the dead cells are removed through mechanical or physical friction. Products for mechanical exfoliation can contain paraffin, wax, irregularly shaped granules, or round beads/poly spheres. It can also include exfoliation sheets, sponges, brushes, washcloths, etc. Examples of this include salt glows, body scrubs that might use sugar or coffee grounds, or skin brushing. It can also include more aggressive procedures like microdermabrasion.
2. Chemical Exfoliation
This is where enzymes, alphahydroxy acids (AHAs) or betahydroxy acids (BHAs) are used to loosen the glue-like substance that holds cells together, allowing them to slough away. This kind of exfoliation can be gentle or more aggressive, depending on how strong the product is . It is important to use an exfoliation regime that suits your skin type to avoid any harm done to your skin.

Healthy skin naturally renews itself every 28 days, the cell regeneration process decelerates as we age.
