Why Exfoliation is Important in the Anti-Aging Process

SpecialChem / Nick Morante – Oct 1, 2008

Exfoliation is the process by which the dead skin cells which accumulate on the topmost layer of skin or stratum corneum are removed or cleared away in order for the new layer of skin cells to come to the surface and grow. This may sound a bit ugly but it is quite a healthy process. In fact it is a normal process which goes on constantly. It can happen by itself or it can be done manually. When it is done manually, the process is call exfoliation. The process in most cases is carried out as we cleanse the skin either with soap, mild detergents, or with the use of scrubbing particles that are found in some specially designed skin care products. Some other methods will be mentioned later on. These products scrape away, or slough, the outermost layer of dead cells and allow the healthy new cells in the Dermis to come to the surface. This process is very important because it allows for cell turnover, which in essence is the removal of the old to make way for the new. This is also a way to protect the skin and assist it in the anti-aging process.
