Regular use of exfoliating beads beneficial

Mickey McDonnell – Honeywell, United States Desquamation is the natural process of old, dead cells falling off the surface of our skin. It is estimated that each of us sheds as many as a billion cells each day.1,2 Desquamation has been postulated to evolve in order to remove the cells damaged by airborne toxins and eliminate waste from inside the body, such as excess iron.2 Exfoliation hastens the desquamation process and exposes skin cells with a brighter appearance and a tighter feel. Chemicals can be used to reduce the cohesion between the cells and promote sloughing, but the physical action of exfoliating beads may be a safer way to achieve the same result.
