How exfoliation works, and why you need it!
If you have ever looked into skincare, you must have heard about exfoliation before. But what is it exactly and why do experts recommend exfoliation as a crucial skincare practice for healthy, glowing skin? In this post, we'll break down the basics of exfoliation, and why you need to exfoliate regularly for the best skin of your life!
What is exfoliation?
As we age, the process of cell regeneration in our body slows down. This means our body is slower to shed old skin cells and generate new ones. When old skin cells start to pile up on the surface of the skin, it can leave skin looking dull, rough, and dry. It can also lead to excess oil and clogged pores, leading to blemishes and acne.
Exfoliation helps remove the barrier of dead skin cells clogging skin and uncovers fresh new cells below. By exfoliating, you are speeding up your skin's processes for younger looking skin!
Why do I need to exfoliate?
There is a reason why skin experts deem exfoliation as a necessary and crucial skincare practice for those who want healthy, glowing skin. This is because without exfoliation, the dead skin cells that you shed everyday get trapped on your skin's surface. This build up of dead skin cells then lead to clogged pores, which snowball into dark spots, rough skin texture, dullness, dryness, acne, ingrown hairs, and so much more.
Proper exfoliation ensures that these dead skin cells are swept away from your skin, to reveal healthy, glowing skin.
Regular exfoliation can help:
- Improve skin texture
- Target acne
- Untrap ingrown hairs
- Detox the skin
- Lighten dark spots
- Remove dry, flaky skin
- Brighten dull skin
