Why Exfoliating is Key to Glowing Skin!
Why We Need to Exfoliate?
Exfoliation is super important when looking after your skin, in fact it is as important as using sunscreen. You are probably thinking wow that is a massive claim, but it really is. Exfoliating removes and breaks down dead skin cells and unclogs your pores, this makes way for fresh, new skin cells to come through giving you fresh and glowy skin.How many times should I exfoliate?
Exfoliating your skin should happen one to two times a week, not exfoliating enough can make your skin look dull, congested and more prone to acne and breakouts and over exfoliating can also cause some dramas, thinning your skin, making it feel tight and shiny which in turn leads to breakouts and irritation. So best to avoid exfoliating.
What is the best way to exfoliate?
Exfoliating is best after cleansing, using a good cleanser, ensuring your skin is clean and free from makeup, sunscreen and dirt. Cleansing is an essential part of ensuring your skin gets the best out of exfoliating. So cleanse, exfoliate then follow up with your serums and moisturisers. Exfoliating also helps all those products to penetrate deeply into the skin allowing them to work better!
Hot Tip: Your skin really loves an exfoliation after having a shower, your skin is soft, pores are open and clean. It really is the best and most effective time to have your skincare ritual.
