Your skin is always busy — busy making new skin cells, that is. However, you can’t see this new, younger-looking skin if it’s hidden under older layers. Our skin exfoliates itself naturally, but this process slows as we age and can be further affected by factors like weather or cosmetic products.
Boost your skin cell turnover by exfoliating a few times each week — and you’ll in turn boost the efficacy of your skin care products. Older surface layers act as a barrier that prevents ingredients from penetrating deeply into your skin. By exfoliating them away, such ingredients can be absorbed more readily into your skin and thus provide their maximum benefits — meaning what you thought was already the best cream for wrinkles will become even more effective.
