Do you ever wonder why a baby's skin is so soft? Babies naturally replace their skin cells every few days. As you grow older, the rate of cell turnover slows down dramatically. Dead cells on your skin’s surface hang around much longer, a fact that tends to accentuate those fine lines and can make your complexion look dull and lifeless.
By removing these dead skin cells, exfoliating your skin helps make up for the gradual slowing down of your natural skin-renewal process, improving the tone and texture of your skin. Here are some of the reasons why you should exfoliate your skin regularly:
- It unclogs pores and releases natural skin oils.
- It minimizes the look of fine lines and wrinkles because newly exfoliated skin reflects light better.
- It minimizes pore size and superficial scars.
- Moisturizers, serums, and eye creams are better absorbed because the top layer of dead and damaged cells is removed. Similarly, this applies to 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 skincare routine.
- It fades age spots.
