Why ex­fo­li­ate?

Ex­fo­li­a­tion aids in clear­ing clogged pores and get­ting rid of dead skin cells. Dr. Mad­huri Agar­wal, Founder and Med­i­cal Di­rec­tor of Ya­vana Aes­thetic Clinic, says, “Ac­cord­ing to our usual skin cy­cle, we gen­er­ally shed dead cells of old skin on a reg­u­lar ba­sis, but in case the skin func­tion­ing is not nor­mal due to var­i­ous rea­sons, such as an unhealthy life­style, con­tin­u­ous travel, pol­lu­tion, chang­ing cli­mate, health prob­lems, etc., the dead cells pile up on the sur­face of the skin and are not shed reg­u­larly.” Age is an im­por­tant factor as well. She adds, “With age too, the cell turnover slows down and the dead cells are not shed prop­erly. Due to this, the skin ap­pears dull, dry and dark. A reg­u­lar ex­fo­li­a­tion rou­tine helps re­move the dead cells and makes the skin more healthy, hy­drated and smooth. Hence it is essential to have ex­fo­li­a­tion in a skincare regime.” She adds that in the win­ter sea­son, the dead cell build up is even more as com­pared to the warmer months. There­fore, it is im­por­tant to ex­fo­li­ate reg­u­larly.
