Our staff was recently interviewed to help readers improve their after-summer skin. Quotes from our own Lyn Smeak's interview for TALK magazine and GreenvilleOnline.com
“Exfoliation is basically removing the top dead cells on the surface of the skin,” Smeak says. “It can help with hydration, pigment irregularities, texture and clarity of the skin.”
Smeak says one of the best — and most simple — ways to exfoliate the skin is dermaplaning, known as the lunch-hour makeover because it’s done within an hour and there is no downtime.
“On its own, dermaplaning is very simple and makes the skin more receptive to products and hydration that otherwise wouldn’t be able to get past that dead skin cell layer,” she says. “It can be very effectively teamed with a moisture mask or clarify mask for acne or chemical peel for other things like aging skin.”
