The Key To Fresher Looking Skin And Frequent Cell Turnover Lies In Your Exfoliating Routine - Dermophisiologique USA Blog
September’s cooler temperatures and drier air provide you with the perfect opportunity to remedy the effects of too much sunshine absorbed by your skin during the dog days of summer heat and humidity. Mother Nature has given you a head start: Because the skin is a dynamic and constantly self-regenerating organ, new cells are produced every day in the deepest layer of the epidermis – the basal layer. But with the change of seasons, your skin needs additional help to slough off the dead cells on the surface of the skin so the new cells can penetrate to the surface. That’s why an expert exfoliating routine is crucial to attaining more radiant looking skin.
The science behind exfoliation
Cosmetic exfoliation is the removal of the outermost layer of skin cells on the stratum corneum. There are two main types of exfoliants: mechanical and chemical. As the names imply, mechanical exfoliants are comprised of micro-abrasive solid particles that work to gently slough off dead skin cells when the emulsion is gently massaged over the skin. Chemical exfoliants are comprised of functional substances, such as fruit acids, that have gentle exfoliating properties. An exceptional exfoliant product or routine will carefully balance and incorporate both types and leverage the best properties of each in order to alleviate or improve your particular skin condition.
Exfoliants help to slow down the aging process
The reason why exfoliation is an integral and essential part of a healthy and radiant skincare routine is because skin turnover is slowed down by the normal aging process (combined with environmental factors, of course). Similarly, the fibroblasts in the skin produce less collagen with age, causing the skin to lose its structural support. Hence, it becomes necessary to apply natural products to your skin that are exclusively developed to gently remove the dead skin cells and, simultaneously, restructure and nourish the skin barrier to allow the new cells to flourish.
