The human body sheds off and replaces dead skin cells with new cells. Dead skin cells doesn’t mean you going through a skin infection, it is a 100 percent part of how your skin refreshes itself.
When we fail to exfoliate our face dead skin cells are likely to build up and this can take a toll on your complexion.
SYMPTOMS OF DEAD SKIN CELLS
When dead skin cells are not sloughed off as they should, you can be left with symptoms like,
Thick, rough skin
Dull, scaly skin
Acne and breakouts
When the normal desquamation process is interrupted or slowed down, dead skin cells build up on the skins surface. This may have several causes including:
Weather and Sun Exposure
Exposure to the sun speeds up skin aging and cell death. Over time this skin damage can result in a buildup of dead skin cells on the surface. Sun damage also leads to premature signs of aging like wrinkles, age spots and loose skin
When you are dehydrated, your skin isn’t able to hang on to the moisture it needs. This leads to dry skin that can flake off and leave your skin feeling itchy and irritated.
As we get older, the epidermis layer thins and our skin cell turnover rate slows down. This is mostly pronounced on the face and neck, babies and young children have that glow because their cell turnover rate is very fast.
WAYS TO REMOVE DEAD SKIN CELLS
Now we are elaborating on the main purpose of this article you’re probably most interested in—learning how to remove dead skin from your face. If you follow this ways you are going to experience a healthy and attractive looking skin.
