You might have heard that our skin goes through a natural exfoliation process over a period of 28 days. The live cells at the bottom layer of the epidermis become harder as they work their way up to the surface, and eventually die off, revealing the newer cells underneath.
However, there is absolutely nothing wrong with speeding up the process. In order to have and maintain healthy, youthful, and glowing skin, you HAVE to exfoliate. It is an important step in your skincare regimen.
Exfoliating removes the old dead skin cells that causes dull, lackluster, or wrinkled skin that clogs your pores which wreaks havoc for your skin. Basically, exfoliating tricks your skin into thinking its younger.
Now that you know you HAVE to exfoliate, you are probably wondering how often you should exfoliate and what products to use to in an effort to keep your skin looking beautiful.
At Bliss, we recommend exfoliating your skin, at least two times per week. Anything more will be excessive, and it will ultimately cause damage. If you notice excessive dryness, irritation, and redness, you are probably over exfoliating. Remember your skin is not a 2×4 board that needs sanding so please be gentle.
If you have oily skin, as a general rule of thumb, you should exfoliate more often as oily skin makes it hard for dead skin cells to make their exit.
Those with sensitive skin, should use a gentle exfoliating cleanser twice a week to gently remove the dead skin cells.
If you have dry skin, you may actually get an abnormal build up of skin. Exfoliating will help the dead skin cells shed at a more normal rate making room for new skin cells, and hydrating the skin.
Those who have normal skin can use exfoliants up to three times each week.
We offer a number of products to trick your skin into thinking its younger:
