If you are reading this blog, then you, like many others, are probably asking yourself the question every woman asks as they start to refine their beauty regime – ‘Why do I need to exfoliate?’ Exfoliation has so many benefits for the body and skin yet so many women fail to include it in their skin care routines. If you’re an exfoliation newbie, have dry, itchy skin or just finally want an answer to the ‘Why Exfoliate?’ question, then keep reading for all the answers.
What is Exfoliation?
Exfoliation is the removal of dead cells from the surface of the skin. A build-up of dead cells causes a rough, uneven, and dull-looking complexion. Our skin cells naturally renew themselves around every 28 days, however this process slows down as we age. Exfoliation gives your skin that little extra boost it needs and helps to enhance this renewal process.
Benefits of Exfoliation
Healthy, Glowing Skin
As exfoliation removes dead skin cells that have built-up on the skin, it also actively helps reveal the newer, healthier cells underneath. As a result, skin looks softer, smoother, and more even giving you that healthy, glowing complexion that we all love.
A body scrub is a popular way most people exfoliate their skin and a major benefit of exfoliation comes from the motion when exfoliating. Scrubbing your skin in a circular or
upward motion will not only remove dead cells but can also boost circulation. This can help loosen up excess fluid, reduce cellulite and deliver oxygenated blood to the skin and other organs, which helps them do their jobs better.
Reduces skin impurities
Exfoliation improves skin texture and reduces the risk of breakouts on your skin. Dead skin cells block pores and trap sebum, contributing to spots such as whiteheads, blackheads, and red blemishes along with dry and rough patches on your skin. Purely and simply, the more you exfoliate, the smoother and clearer your skin will look and feel.
Increases skincare effectiveness
When you exfoliate, your skin is better able to absorb which increases the effectiveness of your skincare products. Get the most out of your serums and moisturisers by applying them to your skin after exfoliating. Your skincare favourites will have a better chance to hydrate and nourish the newly uncovered skin.
