To exfoliate or not to exfoliate?

22 Jul 2017

For sure the answer is to exfoliate and quite often I would say but let’s see why is it necessary to exfoliate our skin and what are the benefits of exfoliation?
But let’s see at first what exfoliation means?
Exfoliation is the removal of dry/dead skin cells on the surface of the skin and is one of the most important aspects of your home skincare routine for face and body. Exfoliation not only helps many skin problems, it also increases blood circulation, which in turn helps you to achieve healthy and glowing skin.
There are so many excellent reasons to use peeling on your skin, during the whole year summer or winter.
With exfoliation, you help your body get rid of dead skin cells and reveal softer, smoother skin so you can show off your best skin possible with the best feeling ever!
First of all, you improve your skin ‘s texture. If your skin feels rough or dry, exfoliating your skin is an easy way to revive dry, dull skin! I’m sure you’ve experienced that magical feeling when you’ve exfoliated your face or arms and you’re left with super smooth skin! Make sure you exfoliate on a regular basis to keep skin smooth and help beauty products look even better!
Another terrific skin benefit of exfoliating your skin is to fight the signs of aging. As we get older, our skin’s natural ability to shed dead skin cells slows down. Dead and dull skin cells often make fine lines, wrinkles and dry skin stand out even more. Help your skin age even more gracefully by exfoliating regularly and shedding those dead skin cells!
In addition, if you experience blackheads, whiteheads or breakouts, exfoliating your skin will help keep pores clean and unclogged. When your pores get clogged up with dead skin cells, oils from your skin can get trapped beneath the surface, causing pimples. Help yourself keep acne under control by keeping pores clean and clear!
Having an uneven skin tone is also one of the many skin concerns of women these days, but we actually have a powerful weapon to fight against an uneven skin tone. After having a blemish on the skin there can sometimes be a dark mark left for a while. The best way to fade these dark marks is to exfoliate twice a week to remove those damaged skin cells for breaking up pigmented cells, encouraging them to fade. Regular targeted facials at your salon are also good to help promote healthy skin reproductions, helping these areas to fade and encourage new healthy skin tissue to grow through.
Moreover, if your skin is dry or dehydrated, you may find scaly or flakey areas which would benefit hugely from exfoliation. Once you have exfoliated an area of dry skin you can apply a moisturizer to the new skin cells and when you have your legs or bikini line waxed you are pulling the hair from the root. Although the hair will eventually grow back weaker, it sometimes cannot pierce through the skin and a red spot will appear around the hair. This is an ingrowing hair – Exfoliation the area you will remove dead skin and allow the hair to break through the skin.
Furthermore exfoliating dead skin cells from your body is essential for sun tanning and is ideal as a pre-holiday skin boost. By getting rid of dead skin cells the sun will be affecting the new skin cells, which will last longer and leave your tan looking more even. Make sure you moisturize and keep your skin protected safely when tanning, and also hydrated through body moisture lotions.
Last but not least exfoliation helps the skin care products penetrate deeper. There’s nothing worse than spending your hard-earned money on quality skin care products and finding that your skin isn’t getting any benefit from them. If you’ve experienced this yourself, don’t be too quick to blame the product. If you have layers of dead skin piled up, the skin care product might not be able to penetrate your skin. Exfoliate regularly so your skin care products get a chance to really sink in and work on your skin!
How Often Should You Exfoliate? We suggest exfoliating twice a week as part of a good home care regime – both the face and body. While it’s important to remove dead skin it’s also important not to strip away too many of your natural oils, so a good balance is essential.
And what about the aftercare of exfoliation?
Because you are increasing blood circulation, breaking down toxins and encouraging new skin cells to come through, our best advice is to drink lots of water which drains toxins and helps give those new skin cells a “drink from the inside”. It is important to apply a good moisturizer to hydrate the skin from the outside in. it’s better not to expose your exfoliated skin to UV rays, sun, sunbed for 24 hours, and for sure be sure you use only professional and effective products on your skin!
