An exfoliator removes the dead cell tissue from the outermost layer of skin to reveal the smoother younger looking skin with healthy new cells below. This causes the skin cells at the lower layers to make new skin cells faster. Exfoliation smoothes dry, rough skin. Getting rid of the outside layers of skin reduces pigmentation spots, frees follicle openings, and makes lines, wrinkles and scars less noticeable because we've "sanded" the skin a little.
Ideally, the cell turnover occurs every 28 days, but when this slows or is not enough then an exfoliant is the best way to assist this natural skin process. Mature and dry skins have an under active system and the natural exfoliation process has slowed to as much as every 60 days which causes a cloudy complexion with a flaky dryer layer of dead skin cells with fine lines, wrinkles, dull color, and folds of skin to develop. A sallow complexion could result with enlarged pores and a sagging tone. Oily and combination skins have an over active system and the natural exfoliation process can't keep up, resulting in a rapid build-up of excess oil and dead skin cells which leads to the appearance of large pores, clogged pores, sometimes resulting in blackheads. If inflammation sets in, the result is acne.
