Why You Should Exfoliate Everyday
What is exfoliation, and how often should you do it? Dr. Schultz has time and time again recommended that you exfoliate (in a way that is appropriate for you) every single day. Exfoliation, either physical or chemical, removes surface level dead skin cells. Physical exfoliation works like sandpaper by removing them from the surface through rubbing. Chemical exfoliation dissolves the glue between the cells so that they fall off sooner. When we get older, surface cells don't fall off as quickly, which results in dead cells accumulating in little mounds. These mounds create rough, uneven dull texture on your skin. Exfoliating these dead cells makes the skin smoother and gives you back a luster and brightness. They also help remove cells that are clogged in the pores, which can help prevent and treat acne.
