The Benefits of Exfoliating
Do you wish you had brighter, healthier, and younger looking skin? You’re not alone! While there are many factors that effect your skin like diet, lifestyle, genetics, the products you use, exfoliating your skin on a regular basis has numerous benefits and will help give you that clean, fresh, and youthful look.
According to Hollywood’s skin guru, Kate Somerville, exfoliation is her number one anti-aging secret. Kate recommends exfoliating twice a week. She says “That’s what’s going to give you that gorgeous glow. It’s going to keep your skin youthful, and it will allow the other products… to work better.”
Exfoliating gets rid of dry, dull skin by actually removing dead skin cells from the surface of the epidermis. Removing that dead skin helps keep your pores clean and from clogging up, reducing your chances of getting whiteheads, blackheads and breakouts. It also speeds up skin renewal and helps reduce fine lines, wrinkles, and discoloration. Who doesn’t want that?!
Benefits of Exfoliation
- Cleanses the skin and the pores
- Improves skin texture and tone
- Reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- Brightens the complexion so you can have a gorgeous glow
- Gets rid of dead, dull skin cells so you can enjoy healthier, younger-looking skin
- Cleans and minimizes pore size
- Helps prevent breakouts
Exfoliating also improves the penetration of other products – when you have layers of dead skin, products may not be able to penetrate your skin so get rid of those unwanted layers so other products you use can work their magic!
For those of you who like to use a self-tanning products, exfoliating will help give you a more even tan that will last even longer.
So if you have problem skin, want an easy and wonderful anti-aging tool or just want to have a good skin care regimen at your finger tips, try a natural scrub. I personally use and recommend Altearah Himalayan Salt Scrub handcrafted with organic essential oils in the south of France. You not only get the benefits of exfoliation, but you get the benefits of himalayan salt, and the essential oils blends. It’s no surprise that it’s an award winning scrub!
