Why you benefit from exfoliating your skin
Peeling is the body’s natural process of exfoliation, or the shedding of dry, old, hardened skin cells so new cells can come to the surface. In an oily skin condition, desquamation can be slowed, as oily skin acts as a glue that holds dead skin cells to the surface. This can contribute to clogged follicles, leading to the build-up of acne bacteria which stimulates the production of breakouts.
Exfoliation is helpful to those with oily skin. In addition to smoothing, improving skin tone, exfoliation helps rid oily skin of dulling skin cells to help keep skin clear.
