The simple meaning of exfoliation is removal of dead skin from the surface of your face.
Why is exfoliation very important?
Cell re-generation slows down as we start to age, which means shedding of old cells happen on a very slow rate and generation of new cells slows down. Skin starts to look dull, dry and rough, when old skin starts accumulating. The accumulated dead skin can cause skin to be excessively oily and also clog the pores, which in turn gives birth to blemishes and acne.
How to Choose exfoliation product?
There are basically two types of exfoliation, you can opt any one method depending upon your skin sensitivity.
Manual Exfoliation: This method is used by most women once a week. While choosing a manual scrub, take care that you choose minute round granules which will be gentler on your skin and won’t injure while scrubbing. Be very gentle, one round movement application is enough to do its job.
Chemical Exfoliation: Peel or Mask exfoliation consisting of alpha hydroxy acids provide deep scrubbing and cleansing.
