Everything You Need to Know About Exfoliation

Exfoliation is the practice of scrubbing your skin to remove dead skin cells, which can build up and clog up your pores. Exfoliating is an excellent way to improve the overall quality of your skin, but it is crucial to exfoliate in moderation. Excessive exfoliation can result in oil imbalances on your skin, which can lead to the development of various unwanted skin conditions. Ideally, you should try to exfoliate once or twice every week. People with dry or sensitive skin may want to exfoliate even less frequently to avoid thinning out their skin and causing dermal problems.

Exfoliating has a number of long-term benefits that anybody can enjoy in moderation. The largest benefit is the chance to remove dead skin cells, impurities and the greasy appearance from the skin’s surface. Exfoliating also allows new skin cells to acclimate to the environment more quickly, which results in an improved overall appearance in the future. When the skin is fresh and exfoliated, products take more quickly and easily. Moisturisers and other serums are able to penetrate unimpeded by the presence of dead skin cells, and the youthful glow is further amplified by the appropriate products. Additionally, studies show that preparing the skin by exfoliating can allow you to enjoy a deeper tan.Exfoliation can allow you to enjoy medical benefits by improving blood circulation. With less dead skin cells cluttering the dermis, more nutrients and oxygen can flow into the skin cells, improving the way the skin functions. It can be one of the best ways to improve colour, texture and even overall metabolic activity.

No matter what type of skin you have, it is important to exfoliate carefully and responsibly.

Always be sure to use warm water when you exfoliate. Often, an exfoliating product may be too coarse and uncomfortable when it is applied by itself, and water can help limit friction, which reduces the risk of skin injury and discomfort.

Make sure to only use the appropriate exfoliating products as intended. Companies are careful to describe exfoliators as either body, face or both. Avoid using body exfoliators on your face and make sure that you match the product’s intended skin type with your own.

Avoid applying makeup immediately after you exfoliate, and make sure that you do not exfoliate after shaving. You want to give your skin plenty of time to breathe and rest before it comes in contact with other products.
