Many of us follow the standard skincare routine: cleanse, tone, and moisturize. However, sometimes we miss a crucial step in achieving ultimate skin health. Exfoliation is essential to keeping your skin in top-notch appearance. In fact, it can actually be one of the most important elements of your skincare routine.
Exfoliation ensures that dead skin cells are removed from the surface of the skin. When we neglect the process of exfoliation we are more prone to acne and increased visible aging. Furthermore, our skin looks incredibly dull and easily becomes clogged with excess oil, dirt, and dead skin. As a result of this buildup, stubborn blackheads are more likely to form.
Our skin regularly sheds its dead cells every month. When this happens, new skin cells begin to make up the top layers of the skin. If those dead cells don’t shed completely, it can result in dull, dry, and flaky patches.
The exfoliation process aids in removing the dead skin cells from the surface of our skin. Proper exfoliation will leave your skin looking brighter, and it will even increase the effectiveness of the products in your skincare routine. Due to the removal of skin cells, dirt, and oil, all of the good, skin-loving ingredients of your skincare products will be more easily absorbed into the skin.
How do you know if you are exfoliating properly? Above all else, make sure that you are gentle! Apply a topical exfoliating product to clean skin while gently using small and circular motions for 30-60 seconds. After you exfoliate, gently rinse off your face with warm water.
