Did you know that skipping exfoliation can weaken the effects of skincare treatment and moisturizer? Dead skin cells can create a barrier that prevents products from fully penetrating and lessens their efficacy. Especially after summer, when exposure to stronger sunlight can lead to a thicker, duller epidermis, skin can use a boost with shedding old skin cells. Aging is another factor that can abate cell regeneration and lead to a change in texture and loss of radiance. As skin ages, the natural exfoliation process slows down, so using anti-aging products without exfoliating is only tackling half of the problem!
