Exfoliation for Sun Damaged Skin

sunSkin care has never been more important than it is today. Over the last decade we have learned more about what our skin needs to stay healthy and retain its youthful glow. Stressful jobs, relationships and everyday life may push sun protection to the back of your mind. Fortunately, it is not too late to start treating previous damage and prevent further harm. Exfoliation removes dead skin cells and returns brightness and softness to your face and body!

Reversing the Effects of the Sun

Until recently, we were not aware of the drastic toll those hours in the sun were taking. Experts now suggest that 90% of the aging process is due to the sun. Basking in the sun has resulted in age spots, large pores, fine lines and wrinkles. Exfoliation is the first step in reversing this damage, and fortunately there are great methods and products that are perfect for any skin type.

Chemical Exfoliates

Chemical exfoliation is the best way to rid your skin of dead skin cells at home. These serum-like products contain a 5-8% concentration of glycolic acid, which works to actually dissolve the dead skin cells accumulated on your face, neck and chest.

Don’t let the word “acid” scare you away! It is important to choose the glycolic acid option because it will remove the dead cells for good without stripping your skin of natural oils and nutrients. Chemical exfoliation penetrates deeply to remove extra layers of dead cells that result in dark pigmentation.

Regularly exfoliation with a chemical treatment or just a rubdown in the shower with a loofah and a good cleanser can work wonders in reducing the damaging effects of the sun. After just a few treatments you will notice smoother, softer, glowing skin. Change your skin’s past and present with an exfoliation routine. Your skin is your best asset and you want it to shine for years to come!
