According to Harold Lancer, one of L.A.’s top dermatologists who has consulted with Beyonce, Victoria Beckham, and Oprah Winfrey, anyone can unlock their own version of the “fountain of youth,” in terms of their skin, at least, and one of the ways to do that is through daily exfoliation.
Exfoliation – What Exactly is it?
Exfoliation is the removal of dead skin cells from the surface of your skin. It can, and should, be done all over your body – including your face. It’s usually accomplished via manual methods, such as abrasive scrubs, but can also be done chemically by using special acids that dissolve and remove dead skin cells.
Why is it Important?
Our cells regenerate slower as we age, and that means that our ability to grow new, healthy cells slows significantly, as does our skin’s ability to remove the dead ones. This usually results in a buildup of dead cells on the skin’s surface that leaves it looking dry, dull, and rough.
The buildup of dead cells creates a barrier of sorts. By exfoliating regularly, the dead cells are removed and allows the new cells underneath to breathe. Without the dead cells, anti-aging skin care products, moisturizers, and serums can reach your healthy skin cells and penetrate them easier – putting the product where it needs to be.
What is the Best Way to Exfoliate?
The “best way” to exfoliate can vary depending on your skin type. Though it’s generally advised that no matter what type of skin you have, you exfoliate gently and don’t scrub too hard. Rough scrubbing with abrasive wipes can cause damage – especially for people with sensitive skin – and can do more harm than good.
