Our skin goes through so much on a daily basis. Harsh weather, makeup, chemicals, soap, and UVA/UVB rays are just a few things that can damage your skin. That will leave a buildup of dead skin cells we don’t even realize are there. The damage can leave our skin looking dull and feeling rough. Exfoliation is an excellent way of removing the dead skin cells and rejuvenating our bodies.
Most of us primarily use exfoliating products on our faces. But that’s because we spend so much time staring in the mirror to check out our complexion. We look to see if we’re breaking out and don’t pay much attention otherwise. When in all reality, there is so much more to a great skin routine than just getting rid of acne! I want to tell you how to remove dead skin, which products you can use, and the benefits of exfoliation. Not just for your face but your entire body!
Benefits of Exfoliation
We all want to have smooth skin. To get soft, supple or flawless looking skin, we need to remove dead skin cells. Learning how to remove dead skin is easy, it just takes a little exfoliation. There are a lot of different products to accomplish this, for every individual area of your body.
Most people don’t know how many benefits there are to exfoliation. First off, it can increase the blood flow to your skin which helps your skin stay bright, healthy, rejuvenated, and soft. Exfoliation will also help to clear any clogged pores. By cleaning your pores on a regular basis, your skin will clear up, and you won’t have as much trouble with acne. After you’ve cleared your acne, it is common to have red or dark spots on your skin. When you exfoliate twice a week, you can break down the dark pigmentation and get rid of dark spots once and for all. Clear and even skin tone is accomplished by exfoliating to remove the damaged cells and promote new skin growth.
If you have ever had problems with ingrown hairs, exfoliation is a great way to bring them to the surface. All you need to do is use a hot compress to open the pores. Then you can use an exfoliating brush to increase blood flow and bring the trapped hair to the surface.
Lastly, exfoliation is essential before you get a spray tan or go to a tanning bed. They aren’t exactly the best thing for your skin. But if you’re getting it done, you better make sure your skin is smooth and ready! By exfoliating the day before you get tan, you can make sure you are tanning a healthy layer of skin. That will help keep your skin looking flawless!
Different Types of Exfoliants
Exfoliation is a similar process for any area of the body. There are a few different types of products you can use for specific areas. Body polish or a body exfoliant is rougher than a facial exfoliant. The skin on your face is very delicate and needs a gentler touch. Make sure to use an appropriate product for each part of your body.
