Exfoliating is to your skin what flossing is to your teeth …the added step necessary for beautiful skin and optimal oral care.
Many people forego exfoliating as they feel their cleansing and moisturizing routine is enough to keep their skin the proper shade of clean. But there’s more to good skin than clean skin. Often times we have dead skin sitting atop our face that we might not see with the naked eye, but it’s scaly layer is there inhibiting moisturizer from fully absorbing and having the beneficial effects it should be having.
If your complexion is looking dull, and you are finding that no matter how much moisturizer you lather on; your skin is still dry, it is likely that the dead skin cells resting on your face have put your complexion in a sleepy and impenetrable state.
Exfoliating Reduces the Appearance of Aging
In addition to better moisture absorption, exfoliating your skins helps to increase cell turnover, and allows new skin cells to emerge. It also helps to decrease unsightly blackheads, minimizes hyper pigmentation (age spots), diminish fine lines, and gives your skin a new glow courtesy of the sloughing off of dead skin cells.
Exfoliating – Good for the Body Too
Exfoliating isn’t just a good way to increase the healthy appearance of your facial skin; it offers benefits to your “all-over skin” as well. Head to toe, your body can enjoy the same benefits of exfoliation as your face will.
Exfoliating – A Word of Caution
Although you might think your body can undergo a greater “scrub” than your face, keep in mind that you can actually over-exfoliate. Especially if you are prone to sensitive skin, over-scrubbing can lead to red and irritated skin, causing it to flake unnecessarily. So go at it gently. More is not better in this case.
