Are you looking for a way to eliminate dry and flaky patches of skin, or to reduce the size of pores and the intensity of lines and wrinkles? Your solution may lie in starting your skincare routine with the important step of exfoliation.
Why is exfoliating our skin important? When we exfoliate, we are using tools and products to remove dead skin cells from the outer layer (epidermis) of our skin. As we grow older, our skin doesn’t renew itself as quickly as when we are young. Exfoliation helps the process of renewal and regeneration along as it eradicates dead skin cells. Our skin renews itself from its bottom layer to its top, and too many dead skin cells on the surface make it difficult for new, healthy cells to move in. The dead skin cells are not regulated, and the upper layer of the skin becomes clogged. This is when skin will become dry and flaky, lines will become worse and pores will enlarge. As we exfoliate, our skin becomes smoother and dry spots as well as other ailments will become less intense.
Exfoliation is a great supplement to our skincare routines and products because the products we use will not have to fight to get though dead skin cells to get to our skin. This process also helps makeup go on smoother, giving it all a healthy base to build upon.
How exactly do we “exfoliate” our skin? We can exfoliate our skin by using products such as skin scrubs, brushes, or even loofahs to remove dead skin cells from the outer layer of our skin. Oftentimes sugar or coffee scrubs are used in the process as well, as the granular texture makes the removal easier and more effective. If you are searching for a product that can help exfoliate skin while also smelling wonderful, check out this face to feet coffee scrub. This scrub utilizes ground coffee brewed in hemp seed oil to renew your skin. When exfoliating, be sure not to over-exfoliate, but to follow the directions on your product for a natural, healthy process resulting in smooth and healthy skin.
Exfoliation is a great start to any skincare routine. This process will result in a smooth, healthy base and leave you and your skin feeling refreshed and renewed.
