Many female friends will regularly exfoliate the skin to thoroughly remove the oil, sebum, and aging cutin on the skin. The skin is clean and becomes delicate and smooth. The underlying cell division is more active, the pores are relaxed, and the skin absorbs nutrients. Then the skin will become better!
I believe that many friends definitely have the habit of exfoliating their skin, but do you indeed know what keratin is? What kind of skin type needs exfoliation? Will casual exfoliation cause damage to the skin? Do you know all these questions?
What is keratin?
The stratum corneum is an essential part of our skin, and its role is to protect the skin from external irritation and damage.
Since the stratum corneum protects our skin, why do we need to exfoliate?
Exfoliating is also dead skin removal. The human stratum corneum metabolism cycle is 28 days. After 28 days, the cells of the stratum corneum die and fall off to form dead skin. If it does not completely fall off from our skin during the normal metabolic period, the stratum corneum will slowly accumulate. The stratum corneum serves as the first barrier of the skin, and its state directly affects the appearance of the skin.
The normal healthy stratum corneum is neatly arranged like bricks. If the dead stratum corneum cells stay on your skin for a long time, it will cause your stratum corneum to become thicker and thicker over time. But it does not mean that you must exfoliate after 28 days in a cycle.
When do I need to exfoliate?
If you feel your skin is rougher, darker, and uneven, you need to exfoliate at this time. On the contrary, if your skin does not have the above conditions, but you exfoliate the skin frequently, it will destroy the skin’s sebum membrane. There is no storage space for the nutrients of skincare products, and the skin condition will get worse and worse.
How to exfoliate?
For women, the frequency and duration of exfoliation are different for different types of skin. For dry skin, the metabolism is slower. Under normal circumstances, exfoliate once a month. For oily skin, if the skin tone is complex, yellow, and the stratum corneum is thick, exfoliation can be more frequent. Under normal circumstances, you can choose to exfoliate once a week.
For mixed skin, oily skin with oily T-zone, and dry cheeks, you can take the method of zone exfoliation. For greasy areas, you can choose to exfoliate once a week. And for dry areas, you can choose to exfoliate every 2 to 3 weeks. For problematic skin, acne is often troublesome, so no special exfoliation is needed. Just use anti-acne products to unclog the pores, anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory. For sensitive skin, because the skin’s resistance is relatively weak and the stratum corneum is thin, it is not recommended for people with sensitive skin to exfoliate.
Exfoliate appropriately according to your age. For women over 28, it is advised to use it at least 1 to 2 times a month. For younger people, it had better use it every 2 months. The mask should be used immediately after using the exfoliating cream so that the skin can absorb better.
Under normal circumstances, the skin’s metabolism is 28 days. With the increase of age, the skin metabolism of women around 40 years old is about 45 days, and you can do it once a month. If you exfoliate too much, the stratum corneum of the skin will become thinner, and bloodshot is prone to appear.
Do a deep cleansing mask once a week, and exfoliate once a week to facilitate the absorption of skincare products. If your deep cleansing mask is peeling, there is no need to exfoliate. But long-term use of the peeling mask is not beneficial to the skin. The moisturizing mask can be used two to three times a week. If necessary, it can also be applied for several days to improve the skin condition.
