Did you know, the human skin produces about one million skin cells every 40 minutes?! As skin cells are produced from the deepest layer and move towards the surface, older cells harden, lose moisture, and detach from skin. This process is called desquamation, and it helps eliminate damaged, contaminated cells that carry environmental pollutants.

As we age, desquamation slows, and can cause skin dullness, pore clogging, and dryness. Through exfoliation, dulling skin cells are effectively removed and newer cells are revealed for a fresher, healthier appearance.

Physical exfoliants or scrubs remove dead skin cells through friction. We advise avoiding exfoliants made of nut shells or ground-up fruit pits, as these will scratch skin, rather choose gentler ingredients such as Rice Bran to polish and smooth. Chemical exfoliants work by dissolving the intercellular "glue" that attaches skin cells, allowing separation and removal from skin. Chemical exfoliants include Lactic Acid, Phytic Acid and Salicylic Acid and come in varying strengths offering gentle exfoliation through to dramatic chemical peeling.

Exfoliation can also help minimise the signs of skin ageing and hyperpigmentation (age spots), by lifting dull, discoloured cells that give skin a mottled appearance. Pair with targeted treatment serums for maximum skin smoothing and brightening. Dermalogica Exfoliants combine multiple resurfacing ingredients for sophisticated formulas that lift dulling cells to brighten and refresh all skin conditions.
