At least on some level, you know that exfoliation is important. So many skin care products and cosmetic treatments wouldn’t focus on exfoliating ingredients if that weren’t the case.
But why does your skin need regular care in this way? Elaine Phuah, DO, MBA, FACOI, is here to help you find out. Beyond various services that deliver exfoliation here at Hanami Medspa in Fort Worth, Texas, she also wants to educate you on the benefits of this type of skin care.
Here are three things it can do for you.
Your skin cells are constantly changing. Your body continually makes new skin cells, and within about 40 days, older cells are considered dead.
The problem is that those cells can continue sitting on the surface of your skin, covering up the newer, healthier cells underneath. Older cells make your skin look dry and uneven and can even clog your pores.
Fortunately, when you exfoliate, you encourage those dead cells to slough off, refreshing your complexion.
At the same time, removing dead skin cells exposes the newer, healthier cells underneath. As a result, if you want fewer issues like dark spots, scars, and dry patches, exfoliation can help.
Regular exfoliation encourages your skin to develop more collagen. This protein keeps your skin smooth and supple, defying wrinkles, sagging, and more.
If you’re looking for a way to keep your skin looking its best through the years, make exfoliation a part of both your at-home skin care routine and your cosmetic treatment plan.
With dead cells removed, your skin has an easier time absorbing nutrients. This makes skin care products and cosmetic treatments more effective, healing and moving you toward your complexion goals faster. Ultimately, exfoliation can make anything you’re doing to get more radiant, even, beautiful skin more effective.
Fortunately, you have plenty of options for getting the benefits of exfoliation.
At home, we can set you up with medical-grade ALASTIN® skincare or Hanami Proskincare products that help to remove dead skin cells and improve your glow.
