6 Reasons Why Your Skin is Waiting for You to Exfoliate It! March 20, 2016 06:00
This past Spring, I combed the internet to find out how I was going to convince people to take a substance that you rub on your skin, that is lightly to moderately abrasive, and tell them it’s good for them?
Well, thank goodness the internet has my back the majority of the time. Below are 6 benefits that are waiting for you once you choose to add exfoliation to your body care regimen.
Fight Signs of Aging
Whether they are vocal about it, go about it through actions, or say nothing at all, everyone wants to age in this body as slowly as they possibly can. So, here’s the facts: exfoliating your skin is to fight the signs of aging.
As we get older, our skin’s natural ability to shed dead skin cells slows down. As a result, dead and dull skin cells often make fine lines, wrinkles and dry skin stand out even more.
Help your skin age even more gracefully by exfoliating regularly and shedding those dead skin cells!
Have you ever heard anyone say: “Oh, look how rough her skin is. It’s so beautiful!” Yeah, me neither!
In fact, I have the opportunity to speak and interact with many women that work in spas, nail salons, and make up counters. Do you know the number one thing they tell me, “Many women don’t know that the reason their make up appears to be matte or does not come out smooth is because they are not exfoliating the skin on their face enough, to give us a smooth canvas to work with.”
One of the many benefits of exfoliating your skin starts with improving your skin’s texture. If your skin looks, or more importantly, feels rough or dry, exfoliating your skin is an easy way to revive and rejuvenate dry, dull skin!
I’m sure, at some point in your life, you’ve experienced that magical feeling when you’ve exfoliated your face and arms, or hands and feet, and you’re left with super smooth skin! To experience this on a continuum, make sure you exfoliate on a regular basis to keep your skin smooth and help beauty products look even better when you apply them!
Even Out Skin Tone
Having an uneven skin tone is one of the many skin concerns I come in contact when facing potential customers every week, yet they have no idea they are one scrub away from that problem being in the past!
Another one of the skin benefits of exfoliating is that it can help remove leftover dirt and makeup, as well as layers of dead skin, to reveal bright, new skin that’s hiding underneath.
Now, if I could just exfoliate an even tan across my entire body, I would be able to knock that off my bucket list for this summer.
Help Prevent Breakouts
Blackheads. Whiteheads. Acne. Do you suffer from any of these conditions? Would you like to stop suffering from these conditions? When you exfoliate, pores become unclogged, oil, dirt, and dead skin are released, and you are one step closer to clear skin.
When your pores get clogged up with dead skin cells, oils from your skin can get trapped beneath the surface, causing pimples.
Help yourself keep acne under control by keeping pores clean and clear!
Help Skin Care Products Penetrate Deeper
I know Tyra Banks make up artist personally. They have worked on Anderson Cooper as well. These people are on television constantly and their skin has to look flawless. This individual was one of the first to tell me that a skincare product is not going to work it’s best unless your skin is completely clean of anything except live skin cells.
There is nothing worse than spending your heard earned money on quality skin care products and finding that your skin isn’t getting any benefit from them. If you’ve experienced this yourself, don’t be too quick to blame the product. If you have layers of dead skin piled up, the skin care product might not be able to penetrate your skin!
Exfoliate regularly so your skin care products get a chance to really sink in and work on your skin!
A Closer Shave
Shaving dull skin is just as bad, if not worse, than shaving with a dull razor. You are risking a unattractive shave, not to mention the possibility of a skin infection.
If you are seeking for your shave to be as close as possible, whether it be scalp, face, or legs, always exfoliate your skin beforehand. This will get rid of any dead skin cells that can potentially clog up your razor blades and will give you a smooth, clean shave!
