Exfoliation is Important
Exfoliation is basically the removal of dry and dead skin cells from the surface of the skin. It’s among the most important elements of a good home skincare routine for your face and body.
Benefits of Exfoliation
Exfoliation will not only help many skin problems, but it also stimulates blood circulation – which is a must for achieving healthy, glowing skin. Exfoliating twice per week is typically recommended for a healthy, consistent removal of dead skin cells. And because exfoliation increases circulation, it helps to break down toxins and encourage new skin cells to grow. Drinking lots of water afterwards also works to drain the body of toxins and hydrate the new cells. Your skincare routine should also include applying a good moisturizer to hydrate the skin “from the outside” too. Generally, try to limit your skin’s sun exposure if you can for about 24 hours after exfoliating.
Exfoliation for Blemished Skin
It is essential for people who have blemishes on their skin to use an exfoliator on their face or body at least two times every week. Removing dead skin cells while also keeping the skin clean and hydrated is quite effective for minimizing blemishes. After treating blemishes on the skin there can occasionally be a dark mark or dark spot remaining for a time. The most effective way to diminish these dark marks is thorough exfoliation two times every week to remove those dead or damaged skin cells and promote growth of healthy skin tissue.
