What is the importance of exfoliation in anti-aging skincare?
The outermost layer of our skin is known as the epidermis and new cells are continuously formed in the innermost layer of the epidermis. These cells, over a period of about 27 days, travel up to the outermost layer of our skin, dying slowly; and then get sloughed off. This is a continuous process. As we age, the balance between the production of these new cells, and sloughing off the dead cells, is upset. This results in accumulation of dead cells on the surface of the skin; giving it a dry, scaly, rough and dull appearance. Exfoliation or scrubbing helps us remove the excessive dead cells from the surface; smoothing the face and allowing younger skin (cells) to surface. Moreover, the process itself, promotes cell renewal, by stimulating the blood circulation. This two-way action makes exfoliation and important part of any anti-aging skin-care regimen.

Walnut scrubs help restore the natural exfoliation process of the skin; while ridding the epidermis off the dead cell accumulation.
