The skin normally renews in 28 days, on the average, but as you age, the renewal process becomes slower—and this is where exfoliation comes in. Exfoliating or getting rid of the layer of dead skin is essential to bring out the youthful glow. Plus, this essential step that the Koreans swear by is necessary to allow the active ingredients of the skin care products to be absorbed easily by the fresh layer of skin. To free your face (or body) from dead skin cells, refrain from using abrasive scrubs as these can produce micro-tears on the skin that can do damage more than good. Instead, resort to these gentle finds that can reveal radiant complexion.
