Exfoliate… exfoliate… exfoliate!

Now you may be asking… Why exfoliate?  What is the big deal?

Well, since you are probably sitting on the edge of your seat waiting for the answer, let me tell you what the big deal is. The top layer of cells on your face is dead so exfoliating the skin allows your products to penetrate and, therefore, be more effective. Anti-aging products, moisturizers, cosmetics, etc., work so much better on skin that has been exfoliated on a daily or every-other-day basis.

There are three types of exfoliation: manual, chemical or a combination. The combination is best performed in a medical facility. (Yes, sweet audience, this is a plug for us – but it’s also true.) At CVD, we first apply a peel and then perform a microdermabrasion. Your skin comes out milky smooth!

Remember dear reader, when exfoliating at home only the top layer of cells on your face is to be removed. We are not encouraging you to draw blood 🙂

Be gentle.
