The Importance of Exfoliation

Giving your skin that healthy glow all begins with keeping an ideal care regimen. Proper exfoliation is a method that should not be overlooked if you really want your skin to be fresh and youthful. Exfoliation involves eliminating the dead skin layers on the surface in order to reveal the more youthful and healthier skin underneath. Exfoliation must be done at least once or twice a week depending on the skin type and the method of exfoliation.

The Importance of Exfoliation

Exfoliation isn’t a difficult process. You can completely eliminate the dead skin cells on the surface to reveal the brighter and smoother skin underneath in a very short time. Exfoliating the skin takes only few minutes of your time but the benefits it provides can be long term. Although the skin sheds the dead skin cells naturally on its own, exfoliation can give this process a boost, especially when natural process of skin shedding slows down due to clogged pores and if your skin is either excessively oily or dry.

The Importance of Exfoliation on a Regular Basis

Your skin care regimen might consist of moisturizing, cleansing or slathering on a branded sunscreen. But if you are not regularly exfoliating, your skin won’t have that cleaned and polished glow. As people age, the cell regeneration process slows down. Our skin slows down the process of shedding skin cells and generating new ones. When the older skin cells begin collecting on the skin’s surface, your skin starts looking dry, rough and dull. Dead skin cells on the surface can build up over time, and this can lead to excessive oil and clogged pores. And that can lead to skin problems such as adult acne and skin blemishes.

When you exfoliate on a regular basis, this eliminates the dead skin cell barriers the clogs the skin and uncover the new and fresh cells beneath. Exfoliation lets your moisturizer penetrate deeply into the skin. Incorporating regular exfoliation into your skincare regimen makes your skin not only look healthier but will make your skin healthier over time.

Exfoliation helps prevent your pores from clogging, which helps prevent skin conditions like adult acne from flaring up. Gentle exfoliation can also help acne scars to gradually fade over time. Exfoliating can also help iron out wrinkles and fine lines. When skin is properly exfoliated, serums and moisturizers will work at their best.

The most ideal type or process of exfoliation depends on a person’s health, complexion and skin sensitivity. If you have sensitive skin or existing skin conditions like adult acne, it is important to choose the most suitable exfoliating products and methods more carefully. Asbury Apothecary makes a Gentle Exfoliating Facial Cream that has been specially designed with sensitive skin in mind. The exfoliation is ground into a very fine grain that sits in a deep moisture base. The exfoliator gently polishes the skin without leaving your skin red and irritated.

The importance of exfoliation can never be underestimated. Not everyone exfoliates, but it is something that you should do on a regular basis to maintain smooth and healthy skin. Find the right time of day to exfoliate your skin and stick with it. If you exfoliate regularly, your skin with be more radiant, more beautiful or handsome, and most important: healthy. You can also enjoy increased self confidence knowing that you look good – from the inside out.

Asbury Apothecary Interviewed by The Guilt-Free Capitalist

On a soggy Friday evening, I had the pleasure of sitting down with Tiffani Bryant, who writes a digital magazine called The Guilt-Free Capitalist. Asbury Apothecary agreed to be interviewed by The Guilt-Free Capitalist on a number of issues, including sustainability, corporate responsibility and luxury brands.

I had met Tiffani at an event a few weeks earlier and gave her two of our products to try, the Vitamin C Antioxidant Moisturizer and the Gentle Exfoliating Facial Cream. Tiffani agreed to try the products for a month before we met up again. She posted a series of photos of her skin after using her Asbury Apothecary products. Here’s the gallery of results after using our exfoliator and moisturizer:

Now, we aren’t usually ones to brag, and Tiffani had lovely skin to begin with. But it’s nice to see a positive transformation when someone uses our products. And, it goes to show that it is very easy to incorporate Asbury Apothecary products into your existing skincare routine.
