Do you exfoliate your skin? This is one of the most favorite skincare steps of some people because it feels refreshing after. Exfoliating is not just for one type of skin or for treating dry skin, this is one of the important parts of your skincare routine.
What is Exfoliation?
It refers to the removal of dead skin cells on the skin’s surface. It helps to keep your skin silky soft and smooth. Usually, the skin shed’s dead skin cells every 30 days, however as we age it slowdowns the skin regeneration which makes the shedding slower too.
Benefits of Exfoliation
1. Unclogs Pores
When dead skin cells have been exfoliated it sweeps away the dirt, excess oil, and other surface debris that remains on your skin after cleansing. This prevents your skin from having blackheads, whiteheads, and acne.
2. Helps Other Skincare Products Penetrate Deeper
Since your pores have been unclogged it makes the moisturizer, serum, and other skincare products that you were using penetrate deeper into your skin to make it more effective.
3.Stimulates Skin Renewal
It promotes skin cell turnover for brighter, clearer, younger-looking skin.
4. Boosts Circulation
Exfoliation is especially helpful during the winter season. Cold weather and central heating can dry out your skin and make it look dull. It also includes stimulation of lymphatic drainage for internal cleansing and stimulation of oxygen-rich blood to feed and nourish the skin's surface.
5.Good for Collagen Synthesis
Exfoliation helps to stimulate collagen synthesis to improve the skin's texture, integrity, and keep the skin looking plump, tight, and young.
Exfoliate your skin once or twice a week and don’t do over-exfoliation. Over-exfoliation can leave your skin dry, irritated, and damaged.
