The ancient Egyptians, masters of skin preservation and mummification were the originators of body and skin exfoliation. Have you seen how good those mummies still look after thousands of years ? Well, that is all thanks to exfoliation!
New skin cells are born in the skins’s lower layer – the dermis. Over a 30 day period, these new skin cells migrate to the surface, where they become acidic and die and become saturated with keratin which helps protect skin from the elements.
As we age, this migration of cells becomes uneven which results in rough, uneven, dry looking skin. Exfoliation means that this rough outer layer is removed exposing the newer younger skin cells beneath.
