When dead cells build up on the skin, the dull finish that results is especially visible on black skin. The removal of the dead cells, a process dermatologists call exfoliation, may relieve the problem.
Exfoliation is the removal of dead skin cells from the skin’s outermost surface. It makes your skin look and feel softer and brighter’
Exfoliation is important because our skin constantly makes new skin cells at its lower layer (the dermis) and sends them to the surface (epidermis). The cells though, gradually die and become filled with keratin as they rise to the surface.
Keratinised skin cells give our skin its protective quality so they are essential but they are constantly sloughing off in order to make way for newer cells.
Cell turnover slows down as we get older. Cells start to pile up unevenly on the surface of the skin and this makes feel it dry and rough and look dull.
Exfoliation removes these cells that are causing our skin to be dry etc. and this reveals skin which is much fresher, softer, smoother and brighter.
Body scrubs are used to exfoliate the skin. They are cream or oil based and contain ingredients which are abrasive to remove the dead skin cells.

Also creams such as body lotion will rub into the skin better if it is smooth and so will therefore work better.
