Skin Exfoliation is a naturally occurring process whereby dead surface skin cells naturally slough off and reveal new cells. This natural skin exfoliation may need assistance in, for example when the skin type is dry and the dead cells accumulate quickly creating a dull appearance. Oily skin may have difficulty due to the amount of sebum produced. Aging skin also slows down its cellular renewal process. Exfoliation helps to normalise the speed of cell turnover and helps to prevent negative consequences for conditions such as skin cancer. Exfoliation also helps to improve many skin conditions including melasma, acne and rosacea. It is now thought that chemical exfoliation with Alpha and Betahydroxy acids is the best method of exfoliation.
