Why is exfoliation important?

Why is exfoliation important?
Did you know that every 30 days, your body needs to remove the top layer of its skin to make room for a new layer?

While your body is fairly good at getting rid of the old, dead skin at its very top layer, it doesn’t always get rid of everything entirely. Some people have months' and sometimes years' worth of dead skin that builds up on their bodies, preventing healthy, new skin from growing the way it should. That's not good!

What is exfoliation?

To allow new skin to grow, the dead skin must go! The process of removing this dead skin is called exfoliation. Exfoliation removes dull skin cells that build up on the skin’s outer layers. Exfoliation is essential in your skincare routine because it removes dry, damaged skin, increases blood circulation, improves skin hydration, reduces skin breakouts, and gives your skin a more glowing overall appearance. Exfoliating your skin is the most effective way to slow down your skin’s natural ageing process. Sounds like a good thing!

How often should you exfoliate?

Exfoliation is a delicate practice. In general, you should exfoliate your skin every few days, or twice a week, as part of your regular skincare routine. If you don’t exfoliate often enough, your body will build up layers of dead skin. But if you exfoliate too often, you might scrape away some of your skin’s natural oils, which can lead to dryness and irritation. Twice a week is perfect for most people. Not too bad, right?

How do I exfoliate my skin?

Now that exfoliation doesn't seem as mysterious or scary, how do you do it? 

It’s essential to exfoliate the skin often. Neglecting to exfoliate your skin can lead to dull skin, acne, dryness, accelerated skin ageing, wrinkles, and other undesirable skin appearance.

When you’re exfoliating your skin, be kind to your skin. Gentle rubs and scrubs help activate your skin without creating irritation. Your skin should be damp, which is why most people exfoliate when they shower in the morning or during a bath. 

When using a scrub, use careful, circular motions where you want to exfoliate your skin. Rub for about 30 seconds and then wash with warm water. Once you’ve done this, apply skin moisturiser to help your skin feel fresh.
