The number one skin care thing that gets neglected is exfoliating. Investing time and effort into doing it will resolve and prevent a large range of skin issues. This skin savior helps remove dull skin & clean out clogged pores, so you are left with a glowing complexion.
To get the GLOW
The two purposes of exfoliating is to get rid of dead skin cells and oil build up (both can lead to blackheads) and keeping the skin ultra smooth and glowy. It can also help prevent signs of aging (like wrinkles) down the road. Our skin is constantly reproducing but if we keep the top layer on it, you won’t see it. Dull skin is a direct result of not exfoliating. Exfoliating will unclog pores, help other skin care products penetrate deeper, it helps even out skin tone, it boosts circulation and lymphatic drainage, it stimulates collagen synthesis, it increases cell turnover. Need more reasons? Are you scrubbing yet?
We have to be careful with the products we use to exfoliate with. Sometimes we feel that the harsh, tough scrub will be the best for our skin when in reality that harsh exfoliant can leave your skin red, inflamed, with microscopic tears and eventually more wrinkles.
My favorite gentle yet effective face exfoliator is Skin Polish. It leaves my skin fresh, bright, and moisturized.
Below the Chin
You can achieve glowy healthy skin thought your body by exfoliating. You can also treat and prevent things like backne (back acne) or folliculitis (acne of hair follicles).
The best way to to avoid this is by washing and exfoliating immediately after a workout instead of rocking those sweaty leggings all the way to brunch. Lucky for you body skin is more resilient than face skin and you can actually exfoliate twice a day to get the smoothest glowy skin ever. Not only does it help with acne but also inflamed pores. When you get rid of the skin’s surface dead cells you prevent bacteria, sweat and dirt from getting stuck.
My favorite body exfoliators not only give me a super amazing scrub but also hydrate and they smell amazing. It’s like a spa day in the comfort of your own home. Bamboo Renew is my jam! and if you are into sugar scrubs Scrubtini will be your fav. I use both during the week and my skin feels soft, hydrated, and rejuvenated.
Exfoliation helps to keep skin clean and unclogged, lack of which are the main reasons of blackheads and whiteheads. If you don’t exfoliate regularly your whiteheads can turn into blackheads which are more visible and so hard to get rid of. Regular exfoliation can keep your skin looking healthy and younger, from head to toe. We can’t neglect moisturizing after exfoliating and that will be for another post but for now these are my favorite face moisturizing products. You can purchase different combinations and save when you get collections instead of individual products.
