Exfoliation is key to looking young and beautiful. As we age, our skin cells lose the ability to regenerate as quickly and we begin to build up dead skin cells on the surface. This causes our skin to look dull, uneven, and even unhealthy.
Exfoliation is considered one of the most important techniques you can perform on your skin to achieve a healthy glow.
1. Physical Exfoliation
Physical exfoliation means you are physically sloughing off dead skin cells. This can be achieved through many different mechanisms, including special tools like those you find in your esthetician’s office.
Using a physical exfoliator like Sensé Rice Bran Polisher helps gently remove dull, dry skin that builds up, causing you to look aged. This is done through the use of rice bran beadlets and papaya enzymes within the formulation.
This product by USANA is by far my favorite. It’s gentle enough to use several times a week and will leave your complexion glowing.
2. “Chemical” Exfoliation
Chemical exfoliation can be achieved through fruit acids, mainly AHAs and BHAs. These are the most widely used among anti aging products. They work quickly and effectively at boosting cell renewal so newer, brighter, skin cells are coming to the surface — thus resulting in a younger-looking complexion.
Sensé Serum Intensive can be used daily and contains ingredients like glycolic, lactic, and malic acids, to name a few. These work together to dramatically reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles and help unclog pores.
