5 Key Benefits of Exfoliating
Exfoliating the skin is actually one of the most important steps in a regular skincare routine. Long-term exfoliating doesn’t just remove the face of dead skin cells but has many benefits that prolongs youthful skin and reverses visible signs of aging.
At GMA, we highly recommend our PCA Skin Daily Exfoliant; a gentle exfoliant that is suitable for all skin types.
1. Enhances Skincare Penetration and Effectiveness
We invest quite a bit on skincare and we want to make sure it works. At GMA, we recommend our patients to exfoliate a minimum of once a week to help remove
2. Helps Prevent Clogged Pores and Reduces Acne
Exfoliation is very beneficial for patients with acne prone skin and those who experience monthly hormonal breakouts. Gently exfoliating the skin helps to get rid of buildup and reduce clogged pores and acne. Exfoliating also enhances the absorption and thus the effectiveness of oil-controlling skincare ingredients.
3. Improves Skin Tone and Texture
As we mature, the skin’s cell regeneration process slows, causing a build-up of dead skin cells and a complexion that is dull and rough. Exfoliation helps to regulate cellular turnover, allowing newer and healthier skin cells to surface and shine.
4. Induces Collagen Production and Fights Visible Signs of Aging
Long-term exfoliating stimulates collagen and elastin production. Collagen and elastin are proteins that form the supporting structure of the skin and are key to healthy, youthful skin. A higher level of collagen and elastin translates to skin that is plump, firm and wrinkle-free.
5. Stimulate Blood Circulation and Detoxifies Skin
The motion of exfoliating increases the skin’s blood circulation which helps to flush out toxins and detoxify the skin for healthier and more radiant skin.
