The outer layer of our skin sheds millions of dead cells every day and makes new cells to replace them. As we age, this regeneration process slows down and dead cells aren't shed as quickly. These cells can form a thick layer of buildup, creating a barrier which makes it difficult for applied moisturizers to be absorbed.
Thirsty skin becomes more wrinkled, inflexible, dull, flaky and less youthful looking. Regular exfoliation helps this process by removing dead cells, enabling our skin to be healthy and radiant.
