Keep your skin silky soft and smooth by buffing away and removing dead skin cells.
Exfoliating is an essential step to creatinig great skin.
But most of us have been told to do it once, maybe twice a week, tops.
Did you know you can—and should—exfoliate daily?
“There are a number of reasons why it’s so beneficial to do it every day,”
says Clinique Derm Pro Dr. Michelle Henry
Reason № 1
Skin naturally renews itself every 28 days, bringing new, healthy glowing skin cells to the surface. As we age, this process slows down, and when dead skin cells start to pile up, your skin starts to look dull, rough and dry. Exfoliating helps to remove dead skin cells by breaking the bonds that glue them together, allowing new cells to surface, and giving your daily glow an instant boost.
Reason № 2
Exfoliating also whisks away any dirt and debris deep within your pores that your cleanser may have missed. “Clearing out pores on a daily basis helps to minimize their appearance, and makes you less prone to breakouts,” says Dr. Henry.
Reason № 3
preps for treatment results
Dull, dry skin can become an impenetrable barrier between your skin care and your skin, preventing all the amazing ingredients from being fully absorbed. But when dead, dry cells are removed and your pores are cleared,
your skin will soak up anything you slather on it—reaping maximum benefits.
Reason № 4
smooths skin and reduces discoloration
Exfoliating smooths the skin’s surface by sloughing off dry, flaky cells, which helps even out skin texture and minimize the appearance of discoloration.
Reason № 5
better makeup application The smoother your skin is, the better your makeup looks. By removing any flaky patches, your foundation will be less prone to looking splotchy, cakey, or settling into fine lines.
