Exfoliate Your Face & Skin

Hi friends.

Today I am going to tell you how to exfoliate your skin.
What is exfoliation? Exfoliation involves the removal of the oldest dead skin cells on the skin's outermost surface, and has been used for many years to help maintain healthy skin. Exfoliation is involved in the process of all facials , during microdermabrasion or chemical peels at medical spas. Exfoliation can be achieved through mechanical or chemical means.

Exfoliation - Removing Dead Skin Cells

The average human generates a total new layer of skin every two to four weeks. At the end of this cycle the old dead cells need to be shed. If they are not removed it can
lead to pores being clogged and the creation of pimples and blackheads.
Exfoliation can make your skin look radiant and feel silky and smooth. It also stimulates skin cell renewal. If we exfoliate on a regular basis we can look forward to a
vibrant and healthier complexion.
Exfoliation should not be limited to just the facial area. All parts of the body other than the sensitive areas can benefit from exfoliation.

You need to be careful, especially with the sensitive skin on your face. Otherwise you may end up damaging your skin.

This will help to exfoliate your skin better.
