There are many benefits of exfoliating the skin. From enhancing your skin’s texture to giving it a healthy glow, exfoliating can improve your skin and remove any excess dirt that results from leftover makeup, or even from air pollution. It’s nothing but another simple step in your skincare routine that will have your skin thanking you daily.
To exfoliate the skin is to remove the dead skin cells that linger on the exposed part of your skin. The outer layers of your skin are the most exposed to product application, humidity, and air pollution. There are many dead cells and dirt that clog the pores and that can cause acne. When you remove this layer of skin, a new healthy layer is revealed that makes it easier for skincare products to get absorbed into.
So how do you remove this exposed, outer layer of skin? You can start with an exfoliant like the Sweet Sofia Body Scrub. Body scrubs make great exfoliants because they smooth the skin, and this one, in particular, removes dry skin to give you a youthful glow. Simply hop in the shower with your body scrub ready to use on your body, hands, and feet, and you will see the difference in your skin’s texture afterward! Not to mention, it also feels like a mini massage.
How often you should exfoliate your skin all depends on the type of skin you have. If you’re more prone to oily skin, it’s best to exfoliate daily. For those with dry skin, it’s best to exfoliate around two to three times a week with a product like the Majestic Maya Body Scrub to promote skin moisture. For sensitive skin and acne-prone skin, exfoliating with a gentle product like the Loving Liz Exfoliating Body Bar once a week will do just fine because of how well the oats and honey in the bar smooth the skin.
Knowing the type of skin you have is key to learning how beneficial exfoliating will work for you. Exfoliating excessively or using the wrong product for your skin type can do more harm than good.
