What Does Exfoliating Mean? How to Get Started and Why You Should

At Newport, we prefer to keep things as straightforward as possible when it comes to skincare education and skincare practices.

Simple Answer!

Exfoliating involves using a chemical, granular substance, or exfoliation tool to remove dead skin cells from the surface of your skin. Every 30 days (about 4 and a half weeks), your skin naturally sheds old cells to make room for new ones.

Dead cells don’t always shed completely. As a result, dry, flaky patches and clogged pores may develop. Exfoliating can assist in preventing this.  

How does exfoliating your skin help? 

There are several ways exfoliating can make your skin look better. By increasing absorption, exfoliation can make your skin look more radiant and increase the effectiveness of topical skin care products.

Exfoliation on a regular basis can also help prevent clogged pores, which will reduce breakouts.

Exfoliation over time can boost collagen production. The secret to healthy, glowing skin is collagen. Additionally, the protein increases skin elasticity, reducing the visibility of fine lines and associated sagging.

What should you expect from physical exfoliation?

Physical exfoliants are any exfoliating product or method that requires manual scrubbing or rubbing falls. 

You might already be using a physical exfoliant; common options include cleansing scrubs, body brushes, and loofahs. 

The accessibility of physical exfoliation is its main benefit. You only need a DIY scrub or a piece of cloth washcloth to complete this task at home. Additionally, it provides fast results. 

Physical exfoliation occasionally causes skin irritation and may cause TEWL water loss if done improperly. The amount of water that passively evaporates through the skin to the external environment due to a water vapor pressure gradient on both sides of the skin barrier is referred to as TEWL and is used to characterize skin barrier function. 

To put it simply, everyone needs to exfoliate because skin cells will continue to deteriorate as long as a person is alive. After reading this, we hope you have a clearer understanding of why a good exfoliant product is the most important component of any effective skincare routine.

Newport has got your back!

Our solution to this problem is our buffing granules and mild gel cleanser, which are currently Newport’s two best-selling products, and for good reason. The fact that, for the price we sell them for, you CANNOT find medical-grade products that perform as well as these. This makes it possible for you to include both of these powerful products in your skin care regimen without going over budget.

Between the price and the quality of our products, we guarantee that once you try them, you will fall in love and wonder how you ever lived without them.

As I am in my 40s and need extra help keeping my skin looking young, I have always been a fan of a good exfoliant product. I like Newport's buffing product, but my favorite is their Mild Gel Cleanser. I enjoy using it as a body wash because it leaves my skin feeling smooth and healthy.


As a guy, I'm not big on skincare, but I love using both of these products together in the shower. My girlfriend has commented on how smooth my skin has become since I began using these a few months ago. I also like that they are less expensive than my regular Old Spice body wash.


I've never really liked using a lot of different skincare products, but I have to admit that I really enjoy using Newport's Buffing/Mild Gel. My skin is much smoother and more radiant as a result of using them both twice daily in the shower. I appreciate you producing such effective, user-friendly products.


I've been using both of these Newport products for years, and they've been and always will be the foundation of my skincare routine. I even use their Mild Gel Cleanser to remove my make-up because it contains no harsh chemicals like the old make-up removers I used to use.


I spent $62 on both of these products. The quality of their results for that cost blew my mind. I had to switch from my usually more expensive products because product prices are rising everywhere. I don't think I'll ever go back after discovering this company because they do the same thing for half the price!


Newport offers some of the best Med-Grade products at some of the lowest prices you'll ever find online. I've used the majority of their products over the years, and they've always delivered high-quality goods.


Excellent beginner products that are less expensive but perform just as well as more expensive brands. I will always be a fan!
