Exfoliation is an important skin care technique that has been around for centuries, but I want to take the time to breakdown what it means and how to effectively exfoliate for your skin type.

What is Exfoliation and Why is it Good for Your Body?

What Is Exfoliation

Exfoliation is the act of removing dead skin cells from the skin's surface through various means and methods. Fun fact, The word comes from the Latin word exfoliare! By removing dead skin cells, you reveal younger and refreshed skin cells that can absorb topical products better and are softer/more replenished. Exfoliation is important for preventing clogged pores, keeping your skin happy, and even for general cleanliness! Keep in mind, there are many different ways to exfoliate depending on what part of your body you are treating. 

What Are The Different Types of Exfoliation

Exfoliation can be done through a lot of different facial products, as well as through mechanical and chemicals means. Any product that requires scrubbing will gently remove dead skin cells from the surface of your skin. Mechanical products that tackle exfoliation are brushes, washcloths, and even pumas stones (for the feet only*). Other chemical exfoliation techniques (that mostly need to be done by professionals) are chemical peels, microdermabrasion, and extensive facials.
