Exfoliation

Exfoliation- is it necessary?
If you ask me….YES x a million! When working as a Medical Esthetician, most of my clients either had some type of in office exfoliation, or I recommended it, or sent them home with a product to help day to day. Why? Our skin becomes slower as we age to shed skin cells and generate new ones. So, when our “old” or “dead” skin cells start to sit on our skin’s surface, it can leave skin looking dull. It also can block our serums and moisturizers from penetrating! This I have noticed in my own skin over the years, and why spend $$$$ on products, if they just are being absorbed by the dead cells on the surface, and not regenerating and revitalizing our new healthy cells?? Dead cells can also get in the pores, because of the sticky sebum (oil) and result in clogged pores AKA black heads. This can then lead to blemishes and acne.

Exfoliation involves the removal of the oldest dead skin cells on the skin’s outermost surface. Exfoliation can be manual or chemical. When manual, it is involving a light scrub, or washcloth, or even as abrasive as microdermabrasion. Chemical exfoliation is not only “chemical”, like how we think of chemical peels. Enzymes, , fruit acids, or other ingredients that dissolve dead skin cells from the surface fall under the category of ‘chemical exfoliation’. MOST {some are just full on yucky chemicals 😉} Chemical exfoliation is my fav, because it not only takes those nasty dead skin cells away, but pumps the skin full of antioxidants, hydrators, cell builders, and good for you ingredients.
Chemical or acid peels, microdermabrasion, laser peels, and facial exfoliation treatments are amazing and provide fast results! But, who can get these treatments done regularly not only because of cost, but downtime, recovery, and following the rules of NO SUN EXPOSURE while healing? Thankfully, there are at home treatments to use in between or instead of.
My recommendation are the allure best of beauty 2x winner REVEAL pads. Check out my site for the clinical studies with before/after photos! Also check out the information in my previous post about YOUTHFUL ~ Peel and seal the deal!  I have copied the information about EVER Reveal pads 👇🏻
