I’m sure we’ve all heard about the wonders of incorporating exfoliation into your skincare routine. Well just how important is it to include in your skincare regimen? Read on to find out more.
Exfoliation is the process of removing dry, old skin cells so that new skin can come to the surface and function without any barriers. While our skin does that naturally, its ability to shed old cells slows down as we age. As a result, dead cells pile up on the surface of the skin causing excess oil and dirt that eventually leads to blemishes and acne.
To restore your skin’s natural clarity and glow, we recommend exfoliating 1 to 2 times a week.
Here are some tips & tricks to have you covered:
1. Do not over exfoliate
Only exfoliate once or twice a week. Over exfoliating will cause redness and irritation.
2. Keep it gentle
Avoid any harsh exfoliators or masks that cause tingling sensations on your skin. The squeaky clean feeling you feel is caused by chemicals that disrupt the PH balance of your skin.
The exfoliator should be moisturizing. Your skin should not feel tight after use. The tightness is actually dryness caused by moisture depletion from the exfoliation process.
So how do you know which exfoliators are worth using?
We suggest opting for exfoliators formulated with natural cleansing agents such as charcoal, lemon, apple cider vinegar, clay, etc. Try natural moisturizing ingredients such as cocoa or shea butter, avocado or almond oil to restore your skin’s hydration.
