As we enter into summer, we find ourselves venturing out with fewer layers on - only to realize that our face isn't the only skin that needs some attention. One complaint that dermatologists hear more often as temperatures rise is about dark underarms, knees or elbows.
Speeding up the skin’s natural exfoliation process with chemical or physical exfoliators has been the cornerstone of a good anti-aging skincare routine for decades. Through the daily grind of everyday life, dead skin cells build up on the surface of our skin. These skin cells will eventually get rubbed off, but in the meantime, makeup, dirt and oil join the mix – ultimately clogging pores and creating dull skin. This is where exfoliation comes into play.
