Exfoliants can help reveal healthier looking skin

The skin you see is actually dead skin cells. These cells are continually flaking off - in fact, you lose about 35,000 dead skin cells each minute. In the course of a year, you'll shed around 4 kilograms of skin cells, which accounts for much of the dust in your house.

To help speed-up the process, you can try using an exfoliating or peeling agent, but these products are not recommended if you have sensitive skin. For most, it's a non-invasive way to help diminish the appearance of fine lines, while helping to restore a smoother texture to your skin. Make certain to carefully follow the instructions for use; it might be a good idea to test the product on a small patch of your skin first to avoid irritation.

A good technique is to apply the product in a slow circular motion over your face and avoid contact with your eyes, always rinse off thoroughly, pat dry and moisturize to seal and protect your skin. Limit the use of exfoliants to once per week and establish a regular routine to help maintain smooth and healthy looking skin.
