Regular skin cleansing sessions are a must for clear skin; however, exfoliating skin regularly is equally important. Exfoliation is defined as the removal of surface dry skin cells. Your facial and body skin are instantly rejuvenated with this step, and this also works in tandem with your skin care routine for improved results. Regardless of whether you have dry, normal, oily or sensitive skin, exfoliation brings back your glow and leads to softer, suppler skin. Since skin constantly regenerates, there’s a tendency for dead skin cells to accumulate over time, and this leads to duller-looking skin. By sloughing off those dead skin cells, you enable the newer and younger skin to surface, which is undeniably radiant.
Apart from resolving a range of skin-related issues, exfoliation helps one achieve beautifully-smooth skin, which in turn becomes an ideal canvas for skincare and makeup application. There are two methods of exfoliating, which are – ‘physical’, such as scrubs, and ‘chemical’, which include acid peels and gels. While both methods work well, it should be noted that harsh abrasives often found in physical exfoliants can cause minute tears on your delicate skin area, and also contribute to redness. Hence, it’s best to stick to gentle scrubs and exfoliators for clear skin. You can look forward to the following skincare benefits by adding this step to your skincare routine:
Reduced Acne and Breakouts
In comparison to other skin types, acne-prone skin tends to shed more skin cells, but these calls do not fall off. Instead, they accumulate on the skin, clogging pores as well as hair follicles. By opting for weekly exfoliation, you can gain much-needed relief from acne and blackhead-related breakouts.
Improved Skin Texture
When the old skin cells are removed, the skin renewal process gets a major boost, and this enables healthy cells to replace the dead ones. This transforms a dull and dry complexion to a radiant and smooth one, reduces fine lines and wrinkles, and leaves your skin feeling softer than ever!
Regular exfoliation can also help remove dirt from deep within your pores. Decongested pores don’t just look smaller but also lend your skin a polished and healthy appearance.
Fine lines, wrinkles, and rough skin are all components of ageing, and exfoliating your skin can help effectively tackle all such issues. What’s more, this also works to lighten and brighten age and sun spots. Exfoliators with retinoid as one of the components are ideal for reducing fine lines and wrinkles.
Skincare products will not work effectively on your skin, unless you make it a point to exfoliate regularly. This in turn helps skin stay moisturised and healthy and also holds true for makeup and sunscreen application. Exfoliating your face regularly helps makeup go on smoother, and enables sunscreen to lend better protection to your skin.
This single step is all it takes to significantly reduce all signs of ageing such as spots, lines and dullness. Start exfoliating today to witness its skincare benefits!
