May The Inward and Outward Woman Be As One

The Importance of Exfoliating

Tuesday, October 15, 2013
Every 28-45 days, skin cells renew themselves reveling fresher, brighter, younger looking skin!  However; as we age,  this process slows down and old cells start to pile up on the surface of the skin creating a dull, rough, and dry complexion. 

Even worse, dead skin cells start clogging pores leading to blemishes and acne. Not to mention, your $100 moisturizer will no longer penetrate through the skin. 

 Weekly exfoliation is VERY important to help rid the skin of cells that are not renewing fast enough.

There are a lot of different methods out there to exfoliate such as, cleansers, retinol creams, machines, chemical peels, microdermabrasion, etc. You'll want to choose a method depending on your skin type. 

Here is a video of what I like to do once or twice a week for fresher looking skin!  This really works if you're consistent and have normal/dry skin. Those with severe hyper-pigmentation, uneven skin tone,etc. may want to look into one of the dermatologist/esthetician performed procedures.
