If you’re over 30 years old exfoliation is critical for keeping skin young and vibrant. Exfoliation is achieved either through a ‘mechanical’ process like a loofah or small particles in a scrub etc or via the use of acids and topicals that remove old, dead cells. When we are in our 20’s or younger, our skin is generally working hard to turn over cells, but as we age, this process becomes slower and slower and helps create many of the sign-posts of aging skin.
