Exfoliation . . . is it REALLY the KEY to healthy skin?
Have you ever wondered why a baby’s skin is SO soft? It’s because babies naturally replace their skin cells at a very fast rate.
As we age – the natural process of skin cell replacement becomes more and more sluggish. It typically slows by about 10% per decade of your age. By age 30 – the process begins to slow and can mean more pigmentation and an overall dull complextion. Thus, the reason a 20 year old’s skin looks so different from a 50 year old.
Without the “boost” of exfoliation – skin turns sallow(yellowish or jaundiced), ashen(pasty or gray) & dull(lacking brightness or sheen). We say “Goodbye” to the radiant, youthful glow of youth because DEAD skin cells have accumulated on the surface. Exfoliation is a gentle act. The concept is to soften dead skin cells for the ease of removal. It helps cells turnover faster so OLD cells get replaced by HEALTHY NEW ONES. Exfoliation also enhances collagen production (the thing that keeps our skin taut and fitted). Overall it improves skin texture & thickness.
- When beginning exfoliation – experts recommend: Start with GENTLE exfoliation by using a cleanser twice a day (morning and night).
- Then, add in an exfoliation scrub 1-2 times per week. You’ll be AMAZED at the overall difference in your skin in a short amount of time.
The most common reason that people suffer from dry skin – is because they have a THICK layer of dead cells on top of their skin that PREVENT any moisture from getting inside.
Exfoliation helps soften dead skin cells for the ease of removal!!
For those who don’t cleanse & exfoliate in the morning, and then moisturize (with no exfoliation – thus NOT removing any dead skin cells) – it’s like they are taking a shower with their clothes on. It’s a worthless act – a total waste of time because it is ineffective.
If you are looking for reasons WHY you should exfoliate – the way I see it – there are 6 Key Benefits of Exfoliation:
- Decreases Breakouts
- Makes skin products work better – see the example above of showering with your clothes on.
- Releases natural oils
- Fades dark spots
- Decreases pore sizes
- Reduces fine lines

SeneGence Facial Resurfacer vs. Polishing Exfoliator
SeneGence offers two amazing exfoliation scrubs to add in to your routine. They are similar and yet, different. So, here is a comparison of SeneGence facial resurfacer vs polishing exfoliator.
- Facial Resurfacer – a sugar-scrub-like consistency, this exfoliator leaves your skin feeling soft immediately and can also be utilized 1-2 times per week. It utilizes two different sized particles which helps to fully “resurface” your skin.
- Polishing Exfoliator – a clay-like consistency, this exfoliator is gentle and can be used 1-2 times per week. I like to use it while in the shower. There are two ingredients that do the bulk of the exfoliating: kaolin clay and the Vanuatu volcanic ash – both gentle but efficient.
No matter which one you choose to start with –
Exfoliation REALLY is the key to healthy skin. If you aren’t exfoliating – any products you are putting on your face – WILL NOT do what they are meant to. The DEAD skin layers on the surface HAVE to be removed to be able to see results. So, do yourself a favor – GIRL, WASH YOUR FACE (awwww – I love me some Rachel Hollis! Grab her empowering book HERE. ) & GRAB a good exfoliator RIGHT NOW and commit to using it twice each week. Pick 2 days (mine are Sunday and Thursday) and watch incredible change take place in your skin. In just 8 weeks you’ll be amazed at the difference!! 100% guaranteed!!!
