Will Exfoliation Really Help the Health of My Skin?


Skin exfoliation improves the quality and tone of the skin by assisting in the removal of dead skin cells from the surface.

The Human skin produces about one million skin cells/minute, which means over five billion skin cells/day!

As our skin cells renew, old surface cells harden and lose moisture, and eventually detach from the skin to allow the new skin cells to come through.  When this occurs - damaged, and contaminated cells that carry pollutant and micro organisms from the environment gets removed.

The dead skin cells don't always fall from the skin all the time (and this occurs more as we age), which leads to clogged pores and an uneven chalky look to the skin.

That's why EXFOLIATION is sooo important!!

I am really liking this scrub! It's been less than a month of use of this scrub and my skin is noticeably smoother and more toned.
