Why you should exfoliate at least once a week

Exfoliation is the step most people skip in their weekly skincare routine and your skin needs it to feel smooth and healthy again.

Throughout your life, your skin will change constantly. In fact, your skin will regenerate itself approximately every 27 days. New cells grow and push the older ones to the surface (the epidermis). Eventually, the dead cells break away from the epidermis and fall off.

External factors like pollution, makeup and stress and can also cause breakout and block pores. Thankfully, exfoliating regularly can prevent this and enhance your skin appearance. By avoiding a dull skin appearance and promoting the absorption of the nutrients it needs to stay hydrated.

Exfoliating will maximize the results of your skincare routine by removing dead skin cells so that your serums, creams and masks can penetrate your skin for maximum results.

We recommend that you gently exfoliate your skin once or twice a week for maximum results depending on your skin type and skin sensitivity.
