Why Exfoliating Is SO Important!

Let's start with the basics. Most people are completely in the dark when it comes to exfoliation.

What is skin exfoliation? Exfoliation is the removal of dry/dead skin cells on the surface of your skin.

How do I know if I need to exfoliate my skin? Try the tape test-take a piece of clear tape and apply it to your forehead. Rub it gently and remove. Look at the tape-are there little pieces of flaky skin? If so, then you will benefit from skin exfoliation!

Why is exfoliating important? A regular exfoliating regimen can enhance your skins overall health and restore it's natural, beautiful glow.

The goal is to exfoliate as much as possible with the least amount of irritation. The skin needs a healthy boot but not everyday. As you age, your skin loses its natural ability to generate new skin cells and requires a boost to do so. This boost accelerates the shedding process of aging surface cells and stimulates collagen production that directly strengthens your skins cellular structure.  
Exfoliation is important for your skin because as you've read above, you skin can not do this alone. It is important to remember that too much of a good thing can wreak havoc on your beautiful face! Please don't over-do exfoliating. Your face will fight back by producing larger amounts of oil and become red and irritated. We know you just love our Halo Spa Exfoliating System but please only use it a few times a week.
