Submitted by on November 3, 2011 – 9:40 pmNo Comment



Exfoliation is basically the removal of dead skin cells from the outermost layer. The two major forms of this beauty regimen are mechanical and chemical exfoliation. In the primary form, the deposits of dead skin cells are physically removed with a help of body scrub comprising of sugar cubes, coffee grounds or salt. In chemical exfoliation, enzymes and chemicals such as alphahydroxy acis, betahydroxyacids and more can be used for the same. These kind of chemical based scrubs efficiently hold the dead skin cells together and allow them to slough away easily. These kind of scrubs can be gentle, moderate and intense in severity depending on the skin type. Today, this procedure is popularly conducted before facial or other body treatments so as to make the penetration of facial products easy. Once the process is concluded, skin becomes more vivid, soft and smooth than the previous layer of the skin.

This cleansing procedure is however not recommended for people with ultra sensitive skin or problematic skin. Furthermore, it is advisable to seek the guidance of an expert to learn on the right intensity of the exfoliate cream to be used so as to suit the skin type. In case, the scrubbing agent is severe for the skin, it may leave it injured and inflamed.

Mild exfoliation of the skin, at least once or twice in a week, is known to rejuvenate the skin and improve the effects of the basic skin care products used by the person. This process is strongly suggested by experts and beauticians as it effectively removes the accumulation of dirt, bacteria and most importantly, the buildup of dead skin cells from the skin surface. Once the older skin cells are rubbed away, the renewal of new skin cells takes place. As a result, the new skin layer looks more young, refreshing and healthy.
