Exfoliating to Improve Skin Texture

shutterstock_71252119_reducedOur skin is alive, shedding old cells and renewing them constantly. In fact, in the time it takes you to read this article, you will have lost 40,000 or more dead skin cells! And just as fast as we get rid of those skin cells, our body produces new ones to take their place. Judging by how much our skin endures every day, this continual renewal is a good thing. It gives us the opportunity to continually improve our skin’s health and texture.

If your skin looks dull and aged, one of the most basic things you can do to instantly liven it up is exfoliate. Exfoliating speeds up cell renewal by getting rid of the dead skin cells. The most common type of exfoliating, is done by hand with an exfoliating scrub that can be found at any beauty store or drugstore.

While manual exfoliation is quite effective, it may not be the best type of exfoliating for everyone. If you have very sensitive skin or acne, you may need to try an enzyme exfoliation or chemical exfoliation instead. These types of exfoliation don’t require harsh scrubbing; but instead rely on chemicals to dissolve dead skin cells. For a more serious peel that not only removes dead skins cells and reveals fresh skin, but also minimizes lines and damage, talk with your skincare specialist at Georgia Dermatology about the latest techniques such as Chemical Peels or Microdermabrasion Facials or your face.

Aging can be graceful by taking the right measures to ensure your skin stays fresh. Exfoliate your body and face on a regular basis, and consider adding a deeper, more effective procedure for your face and neck areas to your longer term routine as well.
