Your skin is constantly shedding skin cells. When this happens, smoother skin cells push their way up to the skin's surface.
However, as you age, the rate at which your body sheds dull and dead skin cells begins to slow down.
In the simplest terms, exfoliation is physically or chemically removing those dead and dulling skin cells. Exfoliating helps speed up your skin's process and helps it to behave younger.
Without proper exfoliation, dead skin cells can get trapped on the skin's surface. When they're trapped, they build up.
This leads to clogged pores, dark spots, rough skin texture, more pronounced wrinkles, dullness, dryness and more.
Exfoliation eliminates dead skin cells. It also stimulates microcirculation to promote the penetration of the next active ingredients you apply. In addition, exfoliation encourages cell renewal.
The skin is made up of multiple cell layers, which are renewed every month. Exfoliation speeds the process. Mask treatments should be used 1 to 2 times/week, depending on the skin problem.
