Cleansing is an essential element in any skincare routine, but it specifically works to remove dirt, oil, and impurities from the surface of your skin. What can you do to renew and revitalize the skin itself?
Exfoliation is the process of removing dead skin cells from the top layer of skin, making room for new growth that leaves your skin with a healthy, radiant glow.
Yon-Ka’s Gommage line of body treatments offers customized exfoliation to soften and rejuvenate the skin as a complement to other Yon-Ka Paris body treatments.

What Are the Benefits of Exfoliation?
When you are a young child, your skin cells naturally replenish and replace themselves every few days. As you get older, however, the skin cell turnover process slows down, and dead skin cells can accumulate on the surface of your skin, accentuating fine lines and leaving your complexion looking dull.
Exfoliation is the process of removing those dead skin cells from the skin’s surface, revealing the healthy, younger-looking skin below. Physical exfoliation involves the use of scrubs with a particle that manually remove dead skin cells. It is a highly effective way to exfoliate the body.
In addition to speeding skin cell turnover, exfoliation offers the following benefits:
- It removes pigment-containing dead skin cells to fade age spots.
- It unclogs pores, allowing the natural release of moisturizing oils.
- It fades the appearance of superficial scars and unclogs pores.
- It reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
- It improves the absorption of moisturizers and other skincare products.
When it comes to physical exfoliation, it is important to choose a product that contains natural particle ingredients like cane sugar, marine salt, and apricot kernels to gently sluff away dead skin cells. Synthetic microbeads are harmful to the environment, and have been banned for usage in rinse off products in the United States and other countries. Natural particles are biodegradable and are excellent to exfoliate the body with.
