Benefits of Exfoliation

Exfoliation is an important part of your skin care regime.

There are so many benefits with exfoliation. Primarily, exfoliation helps to remove the dead skin cells on the outer surface of the skin which stimulates the growth of new elastic fibres & collagen in the deep basal cell layer of the dermis. These new cells are plumper, firmer and have more moisture, revealing newer skin underneath that has a healthy and radiant glow because it has not been exposed to the elements.

Exfoliating the top skin layers also enhances penetration of skin products and treatments, enabling them to get further into the skin so they can be more effective.


Most skin types need encouragement with exfoliation.

With oily skin, the oil tends to saturate the dead skin cells making it difficult for these dead skin cells to fall off naturally.
Dry skin tends to let dead skin cells accumulate too quickly, which can make skin look dry and dull.

For those who suffer with acne, exfoliation is an important element in helping to reduce breakouts.
Using an exfoliant regularly is necessary to inhibit the formation of blackheads and blemishes by keeping the follicles free of blockages, which can otherwise lead to acne.
Exfoliating is important for men too, because it exposes the hair follicles, allowing a better shave.
For those suffering from skin conditions like Keratosis Pilaris (KP) regular exfoliation can help to control the appearance of their condition.DermaTx benefits of exfoliation

Whether it is twice or three times a week, exfoliation needs to become an ongoing regular treatment and an essential part of your skincare regime in order to keep removing dead skin cells and clogged pores and maintain the results. Too many dead skin cells on the skin stops the production of new skin cells, which means that instead of your skin getting better it actually begins to worsen if the dead skin cells are not removed effectively.

Sunscreen should be applied to the face daily as part of a healthy skincare regime, but it is all the more important to protect the new skin after exfoliation.
