Exfoliation in cosmetology is a cosmetic technique aimed at improving skin's appearance by removing dead skin cells from the surface of the skin. Removing excess dead skin cells can reveal the younger and healthier-looking skin underneath
The process in which concentrated shells of weathering form on the outside of a rock and become separated from the rock These thin shells of weathered rock are separated by stresses that result from changes in volume of the minerals that occur as a result of the formation of new minerals See "pressure release "
Removal of dead skin cells and surface dirt, a very important step in proper skin care because removing dead skin cells allows the skin to function more efficiently and to absorb more moisture
the peeling off in flakes or scales of bark or dead skin; "exfoliation is increased by sunburn
a process wherein packets of nanoclay platelets separate from one another in a plastic matrix During exfoliation platelets at the outermost region of each packet cleave off, exposing more platelets for separation Nanoclay compatibilization is essential for exfoliation
The process which results in a splitting of scales, slabs or flakes from rocks during weathering
Removal of dead skin cells, usually done by sloughing the skin's surface with an abrasive material or cream It also aids in improving circulation through stimulation of blood-flow
the separation of concentric layers of rock from the original rock mass
The scaling off of a bone, a rock, or a mineral, etc
Skin treatment to remove dry or dead cells from the surface of the skin Commonly using marine sediments and/or mineral salts, it is used to stimulate circulation
{i} shedding; peeling away (of skin, bark, etc.); removal of several layers of the epidermis

A type of weathering that involves the breaking loose of thin concentric shells, slabs, spans, or flakes from rock surfaces
the peeling off in flakes or scales of bark or dead skin; "exfoliation is increased by sunburn"
the removal of dead skin cells This process aids in improving circulation through stimulating blood flow The pressure used to generate the process, further aids in relaxation & stress reduction
Peels away dry skin cells and removes deeply trapped secretions that impede oxygenation
A type of corrosion that progresses approximately parallel to the outer surface of the metal, causing layers of the metal to be elevated by the formation of corrosion product
The process of removal and sloughing of dead skin cells This process also aids in improving circulation through stimulating blood flow The pressure used to generate the process, further aids in relaxation and stress reduction
Scaling off of a surface in flakes or layers

the state of being exfoliated
a thin flake of dead epidermis shed from the surface of the skin
The physiologic loss of the deciduous teeth
form of physical weathering brought about by extreme changes of temperature Exfoliation may cause the outer layer of a rock surface to break away - a process that is sometimes called 'onion-skin
Deterioration of metal manifested by surface scaling or rust
Peels away dry skin cells and removes deeply-trapped secretions that impede oxygenation More about this subject
