Why exfoliate? Is it really necessary?

Yes, it is absolutely necessary to exfoliate your skin. In fact, it might be one of the most important steps to healthy skin, a step that should NOT be skipped. Here’s why:

To understand the importance of exfoliation, it’s important to understand your skin’s cycle, this is the life of your skin. No, the skin on your face doesn’t stay there forever, it flakes off to reveal new healthy skin, a process called cellular turnover. It actually does this every 28 days depending on age. However, not all the dead skin flakes off causing build up which makes skin look dull. Alongside dead skin build up, blemishes and breakouts can occur if bacteria get trapped in pores.

This is where exfoliation comes in! Exfoliation accelerates cellular turnover by removing dead skin on the surface of the skin which allows new skin to emerge. With new skin comes soft, bright, youthful skin while avoiding bacteria build up which can lead to blemishes and breakouts.

As you age your skin’s cellular turnover rate takes longer:

  • Ages 19-21, process takes an average of 16-21 days
  • Ages 21-39, process takes an average of 28 days
  • Ages 40-50, process takes an average of 45-60 days
  • Ages 50+. process tales an average of 60-90 days

As a result exfoliation becomes even more important than ever! The slower the rate of cellular turnover, the more your skin can start looking dull.
