Exfoliate and look younger

by Kelli P October 08, 2015

One of my Aesthetician friends, Chelsea and I were talking today about the most misunderstood and often neglected aspect of a great skin care regime in women over 50-

Exfoliation.

There are two methods of exfoliating - physical, such as the use of scrub, or chemical. Chemical exfoliators work by dissolving the “glue” between the cells, causing them to slough away. Alpha Hydroxy Acids and Retinols are the active ingredients that cause a slow slough. Physical exfoliation means dry skin cells are manually rubbed off with a product that has small beads or another sloughing agent.  

Here are 4 very good reasons to exfoliate:

      • Blemish Buster - regular exfoliation helps to reduce the occurrence of acne and blackhead breakouts. Acne-prone skin sheds extra skin cells more than other skin types, but the cells do not go away. Instead, they stick to the skin, clogging pores and hair follicles. As dead cell crud builds, the skin produces excess follicle oils—which leads to blackheads and blemishes.
      • Large pores appear smaller  -along with dead cells, exfoliating also removes the dirt stuck deep inside your pores. Washing your skin alone will not accomplish this. When pores become clogged, they appear larger.  By “decongesting” your pores through exfoliation, they will diminish in size and allow your skin a healthy radiant glow.
      • Reduce appearance of wrinkles - as we age, our skin becomes drier and loses elasticity, which can result in lines and wrinkles.  Texture changes occur as well, skin feels rougher. This is because of the multiple layers of dead skin cells that accumulate of the years. Exfoliating restores brilliance to mature skin.  It also helps to lighten and brighten age and sun spots.
      • Accelerates absorption of Serums and Moisturizers -skin that has been exfoliated allows better absorption of the active ingredients in our serums and moisturizers because skin is not blocked with layers of dead cells and debris. Moisturizers hydrate better and makeup application is easier over a clean smooth skin base.
