Exfoliation is one of the most important steps to have clear, glowing skin. However, exfoliation can also be very tricky! If you're not exfoliating correctly, you won't see desired results! Some people don't even exfoliate at all due to misinformation! Today, we will debunk 4 common exfoliation myths that are keeping you from having healthier skin!
Myth #1 - You should exfoliate every day
Whilst it's super satisfying to see the dead skin rolling when you exfoliate, be sure to fight the urge to exfoliate every day. Excess exfoliation will not give you faster results. Over-exfoliation can make your skin irritated, as you are not giving your skin enough time to rest in between each session.
Many might argue that it is okay to do it since our skin cells regenerate every single day. While this is true, our skin still needs a break every after exfoliation to keep it healthy. It is recommended to exfoliate only once or twice a week.
Myth #2 - You shouldn't exfoliate if you have sensitive skin
The truth is, everyone needs to exfoliate to keep the skin healthy, regardless of the skin type--whether you have sensitive skin, oily skin, or combination skin. As mentioned above, our body constantly produces new skin cells, so we have to help our skin slough away the dead skin cells on its surface through exfoliation.
If you have sensitive skin, just remember to gently exfoliate your skin once a week, and to apply soft pressure using your own judgement!
Myth #3 - You can use body exfoliators on your face
The skin on your face and body are different. Facial skin is much more sensitive than the skin on your body, so it means that the levels of exfoliation needed for both skins vary.
We need to treat our facial skin with extra care and use a gentle exfoliator like the CheekyGlo Face Mitt. This mitt is made with 100% Turkish silk which is perfect for your delicate skin, yet effective in removing dead skin cells.
On the other hand, you can use the CheekyGlo Exfoliating Glove for your body as it is perfect for deep exfoliation.
Myth #4 - Exfoliation harms the skin
Exfoliation is actually the key to having clear and healthy skin! Exfoliation removes the dirt, dead skin, and oils that cause many skin problems such as acne, dry skin, ingrown hairs, and more!
Moreover, your skincare products won't be effective if you have a dead skin build-up that blocks your pores! Exfoliating these old cells can help you maximize the benefits of your skincare products!
