The skin we’re in is as ever-changing as we are. Every day, the regenerative cycle starts all over again.
Unlike reptiles who shed all at once, our natural shedding process—called desquamation—is constantly happening. Our bodies are always creating new skin cells and, one at a time, they turn over, cell by cell. Our environment, skin type, routines, and stress levels all play their part in the process. As we age and the rhythm of our lives starts to slow down, so does the cycle. Skin cells shed away with less ease and frequency, which means old cells start to accumulate.
The solution? Scrubbing. Exfoliation helps us get the process moving along nicely and keeps our skin looking happy and healthy. Scrubbing away the accumulation of old cells once or twice a week allows moisturizers to penetrate the skin better, prevents clogged pores, uneven texture, and dry skin.
