Do you skip facial exfoliation because you feel that a daily skin cleanser is enough? Exfoliation is a process of removing dead skin cells and is a great habit for skin health so if you’re not exfoliating regularly, then here are 4 reasons to start tonight!
1. Can help with aging
Every woman wants to fight the signs of aging – you can do so by adding exfoliation to your skincare routine. Although our bodies are created to naturally shed skin, as we age, the shedding process can actually slow down. Old skin cells can exaggerate the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
2. Effective absorption of skincare products
No matter how many skincare products you use, if you have dead skin cells building up on your skin’s surface, there’s more chance of the product having no effect at all. Once exfoliated, the dead skin cells can make way for serums, oils and moisturisers to deeply penetrate the skin and effectively nourish it.
3. Improve skin texture
If you’re an avid makeup user, you probably want nothing more than an even skin tone.
Even skin = flawless foundation
Exfoliating can help smooth areas of the skin that may have some texture by removing dead skin cells.
4. Unclogged pores and few breakouts
Similar to slowing down the aging process, exfoliating can also help unclog pores and decrease breakouts. If you wear makeup regularly or even something as simple as sunscreen, if not properly washed, your pores can become clogged, creating irritation and breakouts.
These are just a few reasons as to why you should get into the habit of exfoliating however there are many more. Start adding it to your skin routine tonight!
