Should I Exfoliate?

The Truth about using Exfoliant as a major skincare treatment.

Should I exfoliate? Simple answer… Yes!

Exfoliation is extremely effective. On acne, scarring, thick damaged or normal skin it helps to stay fresh and healthy. The purpose of an Exfoliant is not just superficial, it lies deep in the skin.                                                          

How does an Exfoliant work?

Exfoliation is a genuine rejuvenation treatment for the skin’s surface and the deep-skin tissue that’ll become the skin you see. Your skin sheds dead cells, approximately on a 28 day cycle. Skin cells mix with pollutants and oils on the surface and become sticky, creating a dull unhealthy looking skin. The cells can become very dry and flaky.

In winter this often happens when we are surrounded by artificial, dry heat and extreme conditions. It also occurs when we’re outside in harsh winds and rain. Clothing and scarves close around our face also draw moisture from the cells. Your skin may become oily in water as the oil glands become over-active and stressed with the drying conditions. This extra oil blends with shedding cells and creates an environment for bacteria and fungus. This can create more problems with whiteheads, blackheads and breakouts.

Exfoliants effectively remove sticky, oily dead cells, increasing circulation, stimulating healthy cell growth and a beautiful complexion.
