Amazing Skin Benefits Of Exfoliating
New Delhi: Exfoliating your face doesn’t just rid your face of dead skin cells, it can also improve the effectiveness of your regular skincare routine so you can experience glowing skin faster. The top four benefits of regular exfoliating, include:
Remove Dead skin cells
Exfoliation is the act of scrubbing your skin whether it be with a glove, loofa, brush, or granules to get rid of the dead skin cells on your body. Our bodies shed skin and turnover every 40-56 days, and while they do shed on their own, the dead skin may not fall off our bodies on their own. With a little extra mechanical help, we can scrub these right off to welcome our new skin to the surface.
When exfoliating with a glove or with a scrub, you are getting rid of the dead skin cells that have built up on your skin after shedding but have not fallen off completely. A key thing to remember when exfoliating is to not get carried away and scrub too hard, this can damage your skin and its barrier, so make sure you are gentle with the scrubbing. Soft pressure is enough with the already textured glove or granules.
When you have a build-up of dead skin, your skin complexion can get thrown off with your new skin, and dead skin being in patches around your body. After exfoliation, you can notice results of even skin tone after continuous use. Don’t forget exfoliation as part of your skincare routine!
Since exfoliation gets rid of the dead skin cells on your skin, you are clearing the area for your new skin to be on top. Once the dead skin cells are gone, your new skin is able to absorb the products you use much better. A great moisturizer you can use after exfoliation is coconut oil! Since your skin may be slightly irritated, coconut oil will help calm the skin.
Reduce Fine lines
Not exfoliating can age our skin. This is due to the fact that dead skin can cause our skin tone to look dull, and uneven, and emphasize wrinkles and fine lines. Exfoliation is a great way to get rid of this effect. While manual exfoliators can do the trick, it may take a little longer as opposed to chemical exfoliators. There are serums and facials that can give you quicker results to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
