An essential skincare step - exfoliation.

If you are not including this skin care routine, then you would not be able to get your desired results.

Exfoliating involves the process of removing dead skin cells from the surface of your skin by using a chemical or physical exfoliating agent.

Your skin sheds dead skin cells every 30 days or more so as to give space for new skin cells.This is important to keep the skin looking healthy, balanced and maintaining a youthful appearance.

So here is how exfoliants helps you to achieve healthier looking skin, and why it's an essential skincare step.

1. It helps to unclog the pores of your skin:

When you exfoliate your skin, you are effectively removing everything that is blocking your skin pores which includes dead skin cells, dry skin along with any other surface grime that might remain on your skin after cleansing.

Hence, exfoliating helps to prevent debris from entering into your skin pores to cause white heads, black heads and other types of acne before they have a chance to appear.

2. It helps your other skin care products to penetrate well into your skin:

When the surface of the skin and pores of the skin are free of debris or sebum , your serums, moisturizers, and other skin products are able to penetrate deeper into your skin and work more effectively.

3. It gives you an even skin tone:

Exfoliation helps you to get rid of dark skin patches, dark spots, rough texture, hyperpigmentation and acne scars.

This means that exfoliants help the skin to appear more uniform with time. Hence, your skin feels and looks improved and smoother.

4. It causes the production of collagen:

Regular exfoliation helps to stimulate collagen production , which helps to improve the skin's texture, and keep the skin looking plump, tight, and young.

In this manner, exfoliating actually has anti-aging benefits, which might be why so many people have testified that it helps lessen the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

As for how often you should be exfoliating, it is advisable to exfoliate 1 to 2 times weekly.

Would you like to get your desired skin glow? Then you should do your skin good by getting an exfoliating scrub.
