As our skin cells are renewed, any old or dead ones need to be discarded from the surface of the skin. Of course, our skin has a natural process for this, but it can slow down and become less efficient as we age and some skin types may also struggle to achieve effective skin renewal.
When skin renewal is compromised, the dead cells can accumulate on the surface of the skin making it look dull and causing blemishes to appear. Exfoliating on a daily basis can offer the boost the complexion needs to ensure that dead cells are removed before they can cause congestion.
Before you launch into a new skincare routine involving daily exfoliation, however, you will need to choose the product you use very carefully. Some products will be simply too harsh for the delicate skin on the face and could lead to damaged and irritated skin, especially if used on a daily basis.
Dermalogica’s Daily Microfoliant has been designed specifically to be gentle enough to use every day. This does not mean that it is ineffective, though! A combination of rice bran, rice extracts, papain enzyme and Salicylic Acid gently remove redundant cells without tearing or damaging the surface of the skin, leaving it brighter and clearer.
It is essential to make sure that your daily exfoliator is not too aggressive, or you could make matters worse. Treat your skin with kindness and you will soon see the results!
