The benefits to exfoliating are virtually endless. From increasing blood circulation and reducing fine lines and wrinkles to stimulating cellular renewal, so dead skin sloughs away. Exfoliating facials are designed to remove dead cells on the outer layers of the skin and speed cell turnover, restoring a healthy glow and even skin tone. Facial exfoliation can be performed in one of two ways—either manually or chemically. Exfoliating agents range from delicate jojoba granules, coffee grinds, and sugar scrubs to more aggressive methods. Some of the more aggressive methods are also more popular such as chemical peels and microdermabrasion. If you can, you should have your spa schedule several exfoliating facial sessions along an extended period of time. These types of skincare services are especially effective when performed in a series. If you indulge in an exfoliating facial, it’s also important to note that initial redness may result.
