Every thirty days your skin renews itself. Old skin cells that remain on the surface build up over time and result in a dry, dull and flat appearance or can even cause blemishes and overt flaking. Exfoliation, whether chemically or mechanically, removes the outermost dead skin cells to reveal a more youthful, radiant appearance. Exfoliation also helps improve the absorption of topical skincare products allowing your home care regimen to further improve the appearance of your skin.
Exfoliation is recommended year-round. During the summer months it will help to prevent clogged pores and therefore prevent blemishes and in the winter months when the weather is drier, exfoliation will help keep your skin soft and supple.
