Why Should You Exfoliate Your Skin?
Did you know that you lose around a million dead skin cells everyday? These skin cells shed everywhere you go: on your bed, your floor, your couch, etc. Every 30 days or so, your skin naturally regenerates itself. During this process, the upper protective layer of your skin (the epidermis) sheds, revealing new skin cells from the middle layer of your skin (the dermis).
You might be asking yourself - if dead skin cells shed naturally, why do I need to remove them through exfoliation? Well, it turns out that this process isn't perfect because some dead skin cells don't shed completely. Plus, cell turnover slows down as we age, resulting in dry, dull and congested skin (this is why children's skin is so soft and smooth).
Exfoliating with the Dewy Hours Exfoliating Body Glove once a week enhances your body's natural ability to produce collagen, which improves skin tone and texture, leading to less visible aging. Removing dead skin buildup can also unclog pores, prevent breakouts, remove ingrown hairs and fade the appearance of keratosis pilaris/strawberry skin. Even better, scrubbing away those dead skin cells will allow your other skincare products to penetrate deeper into your skin, making them more effective!
