About Physical Exfoliation
By Kendall Weatherman, Licensed Esthetician

Exfoliation is simply the removal of dead skin cells that make up the outermost layer of the skin, which reveals newer, smoother, more even skin texture beneath.

There are three methods of exfoliation: physical, enzymatic and chemical. Physical exfoliation is the easiest and most popular form and includes scrubs, polishes, loofahs, ultrasonic devices, brushes, or microdermabrasion.

Exfoliation is a must for all skin types and conditions. However, signs and symptoms that skin really needs to be exfoliated include dullness, thickened or coarse skin texture, enlarged and clogged pores, breakouts, scarring, flaking, lines and wrinkles and loose or sagging skin. These conditions can be due a lack of a regular skincare routine, aging, sun damage, or extreme weather which lead to a buildup of dead skin cells, oil and debris.

The skin interprets exfoliation as a mild injury and rushes to replace the removed skin cells with new healthy ones. This reaction encourages cellular renewal, which brightens, refines and smoothes skin texture, prevents pores from becoming clogged and appearing enlarged, minimizes breakouts, reduces wrinkles and promotes firmness.

Exfoliation also helps yield maximum results from serums, concentrates and moisturizers since the outermost layer of dead skin can act as a barrier. When the outer layer of skin is removed, the active ingredients in the will reach the lower layers of the skin and be more effective.

It is important to use scrubs that contain perfectly spherical, polished grains or granules such as jojoba wax beads or micronized walnut shell powder and allow the products to do their job, without exerting pressure. Misuse or overuse of the wrong type of exfoliant can cause micro-lacerations, redness, irritation, discomfort and inflammation, which can compound skin conditions.

The frequency of exfoliation will vary according to skin type and condition. Dry and sensitive skin types should exfoliate with a scrub once or twice a week whereas thicker, combination or oily skin types can exfoliate with a scrub three to four times a week. To take the guesswork out of this, Pevonia Botanica’s Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser was formulated to be gentle enough to be used daily on even sensitive skin types.
