Shedding dead skin cells, a.k.a. exfoliation, is an important aspect of any healthy skincare regimen. As our skin ages, its ability to shed these excess dead skin cells naturally slows down. This results in dull skin, clogged pores, and acne. Regular detoxifying your outer layer of skin debris will help to reveal brighter, cleaner, and smoother skin. In addition, in creating new skin cells, the skin will automatically increase collagen production and reduce signs of hyperpigmentation.
The frequency and method of exfoliation is important to know because they vary by skin type. Too much exfoliation in a sensitive skin can lead to redness, sensitivity, and dry flaky skin; too little exfoliation on a thick skin will not give any benefits. Despite your skin type, you should exfoliate your skin for a maximum of twice a week.
After each exfoliation ritual, do remember to put on a cold sheet mask for 30 to 40 minutes to let the pores shrink back and the skin cool down. Compressing with ice on top of the sheet mask would help greatly.
