Your skin's job is to protect you day and night from the elements of the outside world. There's actually a lot that goes into keeping your skin healthy, and part of the process involves the constant regeneration of cells.
You might not be aware of it, but your body produces new skin cells nonstop around the clock.
It's an important process, but sometimes cells don't slough off as well as they should, so they can end up clogging pores, which leads to breakouts.
You can do your part to help facilitate the shedding of dead skin cells by exfoliating on a regular basis.
Exfoliation is a simple process that removes dead skin cells from the surface of your body leaving your skin looking and feeling healthier. Generally, you could exfoliate your face twice a week. If you have delicate or sensitive skin, twice a week might be too much and could cause some irritation.
The thing to keep in mind is the goal of exfoliation. It should leave your skin feeling softer and looking healthier, not red and irritated. Following up with a professional microdermabrasion once a month will help keep your skin healthy and glowing.
