No matter what type of skin you have, exfoliation is the best-kept secret to keeping it looking gorgeous. Regular exfoliation is essential to maintaining healthy skin cells. It works by gently sloughing away the top layer of dead skin or releasing the “intercellular glue” holding onto dead cells, thus exposing the newer, healthier skin cells. Exfoliation also unblocks pores—which in turn leaves them open and more receptive to whatever topical products (serums, lotions, etc.) you apply. So, not only does exfoliation have its own benefits—it also makes your other skin care treatments more effective!
Q. I know I should be exfoliating regularly, but I don’t know much about it. A little guidance, please?

Psst… Do you want to know a beauty secret?
There’s a simple reason why men are slower than women to show signs of aging on their faces: They shave. Yep, that’s right. The act of shaving physically exfoliates the skin, eliminating dead skin cells on the surface, promoting healthy rejuvenation and increasing cellular turnover. The result is smoother, softer, younger-looking skin.
