In the face of harsh winter weather, do you find yourself seeking soothing, moisturizing skin care and avoiding exfoliation? What if I told you that no matter how much moisturizer you slather on, your skin will remain dry and dull if you leave out that one critical component?
Here’s why exfoliating in winter is not only okay, it’s essential.
Winter skin is dry.
You know that. But what you may not know is that dry skin has more dead cells. As cold weather and dry indoor heat pull moisture from the skin, cells die off quicker, creating a skin-dulling buildup of cellular debris. These dead cells act as a barrier that keeps moisture and other beneficial skincare ingredients from entering the skin.
To get skin back to a soft, hydrated, glowy condition, you’ve got to get rid of that layer of dead cells. The way forward is exfoliation.
Shedding cellular debris skin clears the way for moisture to enter the skin and enhances product absorption to optimize performance. Exfoliation also accelerates the skin’s natural renewal process, regenerating fresh new cells more rapidly and revealing a brighter, healthier complexion.
Should everyone exfoliate?
To maintain skin health, revive radiance and ensure optimal product absorption, exfoliation is critical for all skin types, especially in the dry winter months.
