Now that I am older, I really do see the benefits of exfoliation. First, I'm going to explain what exfoliation means and then I'm going to share 2 reasons why you should exfoliate regularly.
What is Exfoliation?
Exfoliation involves the removal of dead skin cells on the skins outermost surface. You can exfoliate your skin with a process called microdermabrasion. Microdermabrasion is a gentle procedure that uses tiny crystals or exfoliating surfaces to help remove the layer of dead skin cells. When stratum corneum (the top layer of skin) your body thinks it has an injury. Your body then quickly replaces the lost skin cells with new healthy skin cells.
2 Reasons you Should Exfoliate:
1. Reduce fine lines and wrinkles
Exfoliation reduces the appearance of fine lines and gently refines skin's texture as it removes surface dead skin cells and build-up from pores. It helps to tighten the look of pores. With pores cleared of build-up and dead skin cells.
2. Minimize Pores
Large pores are a sure sign of aging skin. Large pores are also more common among people with acne. So minimizing pores will help aging skin and acne. Therefore, exfoliation can also help with scars due to acne.
2 things I use in my Daily/Weekly Routine:
1. Skinvigorate Sonic Brush
It is clinically shown to remove four times more dirt, oil, impurities, makeup and pollutants than hand-cleansing alone. It gets in hard to reach places and it help to soothe acne. I am even seeing a reduction in acne scars. I also use my Skinvigorate Sonic brush twice a day with my favorite MK cleanser.

2. Microdermabrasion/ Pore Refine:
It dramatically improves skin texture. It visibly improves the look of fine lines and immediately pores look smaller. I use this set once a week along with the Skinvigorate Sonic Brush no more than 60 seconds. My skin feels smoother and my makeup goes on more smoothly.
