Ever wonder why baby skin is so soft? Did you know babies replace their skin cells every few days? As we get older, our skin cell turnover starts to slow down. In our 20s it takes from 14-21 days, in our 30s from 28-45 days, in our 40s from 45-60 days, and at 50+ it could take anywhere from 60-90+ days for a full cell replacement. Dead skin cells stay longer and longer on the surface of our skin, which is one of the reasons why we get our first fine lines that turn into wrinkles eventually and experience dull skin. By exfoliating your skin with a scrub, acids or enzymes you will benefit from a softer, clearer and more radiant looking skin. In fact, exfoliating helps with the renewal process of the cycle of your skin. Removing dead cells physically or chemically helps with the gradual slowing down factor of the natural skin renewal process. Keep reading to learn 5 more benefits of the effect of exfoliating your skin consistently!
Here are some reasons why you need to exfoliate regularly:
It fades age/sun spots by removing dead skin cells containing the pigment.
It unclogs pores and allows the release of natural skin oils.
It minimizes pore size and superficial scars.
It makes fine lines and wrinkles look less visible since it smoothes the skin.
It allows better absorption of moisturizers, antioxidants and collagen-boosting serums by removing the top layer of dead and damaged cells. This also holds true for acne medications and other types of skin treatments for which penetration is important. This is another reason why regular exfoliation should be part of a basic skin care regimen.
If you are looking for better results from your home products or med/spa skin services, then doing more exfoliations could help you achieve a greater outcome. Please seek guidance from a professional before, the amount of exfoliations recommended could vary depending of which type you do. Usually, a regular exfoliation should be done from 1 to 2 times a week, a stronger ones could be done once every 2 to 4+ weeks. In conclusion, exfoliating on a regular basis offers many benefits; it is the best way to improve the texture, look and glow of your skin. Exfoliations are also the best method to prevent and reverse aging sings.
