The skin is the largest organ in your body, and in order to stay healthy, it has to constantly regenerate. Dead skin cells are shed, new skin cells are formed, and the cycle continues. After about a month, your body will have created a whole new set of skin (source).
Of course, when you shed dead skin cells, they don’t just disappear – many linger on your body and face. This layer of dead skin may clog your pores and cause blackheads and pimples. Exfoliation is the process by which you remove dead skin cells from the surface of your skin. This can happen through chemicals peels, natural rubs / scrubs, or mechanically with an exfoliating glove or mitt.
The Benefits of Removing Dead Skin Cells
As dead skin cells accumulate, your skin’s appearance changes. Pores are clogged. Acne appears. Your skin may have an overall dull or “lifeless” appearance. Luckily you can change this! You can exfoliate dead skin once a week to instantly improve your skin’s appearance and feeling. Over time, you’ll have less pimples and blackheads. You won’t have dry flakes of excess skin peeling from your nose, elbows or feet. Here are some other benefits you will see once you exfoliate to remove dead skin:
A Better Texture
The key to a soft skin is exfoliation. Exfoliated skin feels soft and smooth to the touch. In addition, thanks to clearing out your pores, it will be easier for moisturizers and other products to penetrate your skin, making them more effective. Finally, removing the dead cells allows you to get a closer shave.
Reduce Signs of Aging
The older you are, the more your natural ability to remove dead skin cells from your face and body slows down. Essentially, these dead skin cells serve as magnifiers – wrinkles, fine lines, and dry skin will all be more pronounced. By removing dead skin on your face, you’ll reduce these signs of aging.
Help Even Out Your Skin Tone
When you wash your face, no matter how much you try, you’re never perfectly clean. Dead skin cells in your pores, left over make up, and dirt are all hidden. Exfoliation digs deeper than a regular face wash and will unveil the fresh, bright skin beneath.
Exfoliation is Best in Moderation
While exfoliating your skin is important, make sure you don’t overdo it, as that can damage your skin and lead to rashes or breakouts. For example, if you’re using our exfoliating glove, it’s perfectly safe to wash yourself with it every day, but you should only deeply exfoliate with it once a week.
