Why We Love a Good Exfoliator

Why We Love a Good Exfoliator

As we settle into the dog days of summer, the last thing we want is clogged pores that keep our skin from looking and feeling its best. What we would like is smoother skin and a more radiant complexion.

Exfoliating is one of the quickest ways to clear the skin of sweat, dirt, dead skin cells, and other toxins that clog pores and keep skin from looking refreshed. While many of us neglect the exfoliating step on a regular basis, it’s essential to make it part of your healthy skincare routine during the transition season.

Why Exfoliate Your Face?

Skin cells renew about every 21 to 28 days, making their way to the surface in four to six weeks. Skin cell turnover slows down as we age, taking even longer to regenerate. If skin cells aren’t sloughed away once they hit the end of the life cycle, they can cause skin to look dull and lifeless. Exfoliating helps move the process along and renew the complexion with a fresher, younger-looking skin.

Polish and Perfect

Right after cleansing, exfoliating should be the second step in any skincare routine. Dry, dehydrated, or sensitive skin types only need to exfoliate once or twice a week, while oily and combination skin types can benefit from more frequent sloughing.

Whether you choose a textured surface scrub or an exfoliant containing alpha and beta-hydroxy acids, the ultimate goal of exfoliating is to make it easier for the skin to absorb moisturizers and serums, so skin receives the maximum benefits from your skincare routine. A rich-textured, ultra-gentle scrub like L’Essentials Micro-Exfoliant combines micro-fine jojoba beads with an infusion of Bio-Suisse certified organic botanicals for some serious smoothing power. This helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, improves hydration, clears clogged pores, and enhances luminosity for a softer, smoother complexion.

Dull skin is no match for Luzern’s L’Essentials AHA Exfoliating Pads. Ideal for mature or sun-damaged skin, these super-exfoliating, pre-soaked pads support natural cell turnover and expose younger-looking skin. These dual-acid skin resurfacing pads:
