Why Exfoliating Is A Good Idea at Any Age

When you want to stay up on your cosmetic dermatology knowledge, it's important to factor exfoliation into the mix. It can be tough to determine how to exfoliate, whether it's good for your skin, and how often to do it. If you're struggling with these questions, here's what you need to know.

How Exfoliating Benefits and Impacts Your Skin

DOES EXFOLIATING BENEFIT SKIN?

It's a legit question. Is exfoliating actually good for your skin? The answer is yes!

Exfoliating can benefit your skin in a few different ways. First, exfoliating can leave your skin looking brighter, healthier and  and feeling smoother. Not only that, but exfoliating can help improve the effectiveness of your skincare products.

By exfoliating the surface layer of skin exfoliating ensures that your other skincare products penetrate more deeply and are more effective. In addition, regular exfoliation can help decrease the likelihood of clogged pores, which may help reduce acne flare ups. There are long-term benefits to exfoliation, too. For one, long-term exfoliation can help increase collagen production. If you want to avoid wrinkles for as long as possible, then collagen is definitely something you want more of in your skin. More collagen and skin elasticity can help reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging in the face. But before you can reap all of these benefits, it's important to learn how to exfoliate correctly.

BE GENTLE TO YOUR SKIN

When you want to remove dead skin cells, using rough, heavy motions might seem like the fastest way to do that. Unfortunately, you could be seriously damaging your skin if you don't use a gentle hand when you're exfoliating. Rough motions can cause microtears in the skin, which may lead to rough skin texture and even acne flare ups in some cases. If you're using a gentle hand and your skin is still getting irritated, it could be time to try a different method of exfoliation or a different exfoliating product.

HOW OFTEN SHOULD YOU EXFOLIATE?

There isn't really a consensus within the skincare community on how often you should exfoliate. While it's common to exfoliate two to three times per week, how often you need to exfoliate really depends on your skin's needs.

When in doubt, exfoliate less often than you think you need to. Doing so too often may lead to over-exfoliation, which can contribute to skin rashes and other forms of skin damage.

Like it or not, exfoliation is an important part of taking good care of your skin. Exfoliation is the key to healthier younger looking skin. When done as a weekly skincare regimen you will notice the difference in skin tone, elasticity and brightness.

With several options to choose from you will be able to determine what type of exfoliate you need to use for the outcome you want.
