The Importance of Exfoliation

The Importance of Exfoliation

Is your skin feeling congested? Our skin is working day and night as we age. Nearing the end of a warmer season, it is so important for extra skin care and you can start by simply exfoliating dead skin cells.

As we age, our skin cell turnover starts to slow down, leaving excess dead cells on the surface thus creating dull skin.

WHY EXFOLIATE? If you have these skin issues, then your skin may benefit for at least a once a week exfoliation: 

  • Dullness
  • Rough appearance or texture
  • Acne or other breakouts
  • Discoloration or uneven tone
  • Sun and age spots
  • Having dry, flaky, irritated skin

Exfoliation is necessary because it allows the shedding of the top layers of the dermis to readily allow the fresh skin to breathe and function without any unwanted barriers. Regular exfoliation helps to stimulate collagen synthesis to improve the skin's texture, integrity, and keep the skin looking plump, tight, and young. Dead skin cells can also reduce the penetration and absorption of your skincare routine products like moisturizers, serums and sunscreen. The cleaner the skin, the easier for your products to penetrate deeper.  

If you have sensitive skin, consider a non-irritating exfoliant like Lifelines Dual Action Exfoliator. With the Dual Action Exfoliator, glycolic acid and microcrystals safely exfoliate dead skin cells.

Remember your other parts are just as important. Exfoliating your face, hands, feet and lips weekly are a great prep for the new season too.
