Why Should You Exfoliate?
Skin care advice from the experts at UW Health Transformations Jeune Skin Care:
Ever wonder why you should exfoliate, or how to exfoliate your skin?
Exfoliation is not a new topic and it is said that even Cleopatra used exfoliation products in her beauty regimen. Exfoliation is the cosmetic practice of removing dead skin cells from the epidermis, the top layer of the skin. Dead skin can clog pores and leave skin looking dull. Exfoliation encourages cell renewal, the process by which your skin replenishes itself.
By revealing new skin and sloughing away the old, you're also improving the skin's ability to absorb products that you apply on your skin - and giving your skin that healthy glow.
What can I do at home?
Invest in a Clarisonic brush! The technology works with skin's natural elasticity, using sonic frequency that produces over 300 movements per second, removing deep-seated impurities from pores and priming skin to better absorb topical products. Clarisonic is suitable for all skin types. A variety of brushes are available for even the most sensitive skin types. The device should be used with the appropriate cleanser for your skin (available at UW Health Transformations).
Step it up!
Regular use of at-home products can help keep skin exfoliated. However, in-office treatments such as dermaplaning or light chemical peels can quickly remove large amounts of dead skin, helping with tone and texture and leaving your skin feeling smooth. A micropeel is a great start to give your skin that healthy glow! Learn more about the peels available at UW Health Transformations Jeune Skin Care
Don't over-do it!
Excessively red, tight or dry skin is a sign of inflammation, which is an indication that you might have to decrease the frequency of your routine at home or how often you are coming in for a treatment with your aesthetician. A combination of at-home and in-office treatments is the best way to really see the results you are looking for. Be sure to let your provider know which products you are using at home, including the ingredients in your products as well.
