The benefits of exfoliation
If there is one piece of advice that every dermatologist, friend, or family might give about looking after your skin is to exfoliate. We hear so much about it, but do we really know what it entails? Exfoliation is all about ridding the face (and body) of all the dead skin and impurities that stop it from looking its best. Itâ€™s like an intense shower for your pores, and itâ€™s what your skin needs to say goodbye to imperfections and come out looking healthy and glowing.
But more specifically, how does exfoliation help your skin exactly?
Acne & Blemishes Prevention
There is no better ally in the battle against acne and blemishes than exfoliation. This helps unclog your pores which consequently prevents breakouts in the skin from happening. Obviously, this doesnâ€™t mean that you should try to harshly scrub away your acne, itâ€™s all about prevention.
Better Product Absorption
Sometimes, if a skincare product we try doesnâ€™t actually bring any results to our skin, it might be because we simply didnâ€™t prepare it for it. By removing all dead skin and unclogging pores with exfoliation, we allow for these products to penetrate more deeply and consequently work more effectively. Think twice next time you believe that a product might not be working and give it another chance!
One of the things that show up when your skin ages are dark pigmentation spots, alongside reduced elasticity and rough patches. By exfoliating, you can disperse those pigmented cells, and as you get rid of impurities and moisturize the skin, youâ€™ll maintain a healthy, glowing, and youthful-looking appearance. Plus, regular exfoliation stimulates collagen which is what you need to keep the skin looking plump and tight.
Even Skin Tone
The ability of exfoliation to remove impurities, dead skin cells, acne scars, dark spots, and more is what makes it so essential to achieving an even skin tone. This exfoliating action doesnâ€™t just cleanse from within, it also smooths the texture of your skin, helping it look more uniform. Basically, the more regularly you exfoliate, the more even your skin will appear!
Lastly but more importantly, exfoliating keeps your skin fresh and healthy, as the dead and dry skin cells get removed to leave room for healthy cells at the surface. By regularly exfoliating (making sure that it’s done in a gentle way and with the right products) you can help the skin maintain its glow. Plus, don’t forget to moisturize straight after to complete your skincare! This is how you achieve that dreamy baby-faced complexion and glowing skin.
