Exfoliation is an essential step in skincare because it helps to remove dead skin cells that accumulate on the surface of the skin, revealing fresh smooth and glowing skin underneath. This process also stimulates the production of new skin cells, which can help to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and hyperpigmentation. When dead skin cells are left on the surface of the skin, they can clog pores leading to acne breakouts and other skin issues.
Exfoliation helps to unclog pores and prevent acne by removing these dead skin cells and allowing for better absorption of skincare products.
Regular exfoliation can also improve the texture and tone of the skin making it more radiant and youthful. It can even help to boost collagen production, which can improve skin elasticity and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
However, it is important to note to that over exfoliation can be damaging to the skin so it is important to choose the right exfoliant and frequency of use based on your skin type and individual needs
