Why Exfoliating Is So Important
Four Reasons You Should Exfoliate
- Exfoliate For Soft and Healthy Skin
Exfoliating allows for deeper cleansing of the pores, increases moisture retention and circulation while helping smooth the skin. Exfoliating your skin allows moisturizers to penetrate more effectively, so your skin is soft and healthy.
- Exfoliate To Prevent Pimples
Your skin naturally sheds dead skin cells to make room for new cells every 30 days. Exfoliating removes dead skin from the top layer of your skin. If you don’t remove that dead skin from the top layer, it will clog your pores underneath and become a Pimple.
- Exfoliate To Prevent Ingrown Hair
Ingrown hair can affect anyone with curly or coarse hair. If bacteria gets trapped inside the Ingrown hair- it can cause the area to be infected, which then becomes a Pimple or “Cystic Acne.”
- Exfoliate to Prevent Cystic Acne
Cystic acne happens when this infection goes deep into your skin, creating a bump full of pus. It may hurt or itch. If a cyst burst (you pop), the infection can spread, causing more breakouts. Cystic Acne is very common, but people don’t realize that’s what it is because it can look just like a regular pimple. Cystic acne can last for years. It can affect large areas of your skin and leave scars.
By Exfoliating You can prevent having, Cystic Acne, Clogged Pores, and Pimple.
Exfoliate For Healthy Youthful Skin
In order to maintain healthy and beautiful skin, exfoliating should be one of the most important parts of your skincare routine. When you exfoliate you are able to deep-cleanse your skin and remove dead skin cells. Dead skin can make your skin look dull and grey. Dead Skin absorbs all the good ingredients in your skincare products, which prevents them from working as intended. To ensure optimal efficiency from your skincare products, it is vital to use them on cleansed skin free of dead skin cells. Exfoliating stimulates new cell growth helping to reveal new skin and stimulate further skin renewal. Proper Exfoliation of the skin, especially of the entire body, enhances nerve stimulation and skin respiration. Exfoliating is an essential factor if you want healthy, youthful skin.
Exfoliants Are Either Manual or Chemical
Manual Exfoliation A Manual Exfoliant contains a granular substance with a slightly grainy or rough texture referred to as a Mechanical process the abrasion of the rough texture against the face causes a scaping effect to remove dead skin cells.
Chemical Exfoliation Chemical Exfoliation is the process of using a natural substance such as enzymes or alpha hydroxy acids in conjunction with other ingredients to cause a chemical reaction to remove dead skin cells. Different chemical agents promote rapid cell turnover, depending on how deeply they penetrate the skin.
Exfoliate by making small circular motions using your fingers for about 30 seconds on your face and then wash off with warm water.
I recommend exfoliating twice a week or as often as needed to keep your body smoothes and moisturized.
