Benefits of Exfoliating Your Skin

What is exfoliation? 

It is the process of removing dead skin cells on the skin’s surface resulting in smoother and healthy looking skin.  If you’re not exfoliating your skin, you should start now!  Here are some of the benefits of exfoliating.

Removes Dead Skin Cells

Say goodbye to dead skin! Exfoliating is an important step to your skincare routine because it can remove dull and dead skin. This is the one step you don’t want to skip!  Exfoliating can clear the layers of dirt leaving your skin glowing and soft. Not only is exfoliating benefiting the skin, it is also relaxing.  Your skin will thank you!


Unclog Pores

Whether you have blackheads or whiteheads, exfoliation can remove these unwanted guests on our bodies!  By exfoliating your skin, you are removing the oil that can trap and clog your pores.  Clogged pores can then result in blackheads or whiteheads. Gross!  Exfoliating is an easy and beneficial way to keep your skin oil free.

Increase Blood Flow

Studies show that massaging can improve blood flow.  The small circular motions we are doing on our skin while exfoliating may stimulate the blood circulation, which can lead to smoother and younger looking skin. Since exfoliating can leave the skin looking smoother, it can be used to fight the appearance of cellulite!


Better Product Absorption

Ever wonder why your foundation is looking cakey or your lotion isn’t absorbing into your skin?  It can be that you are not exfoliating your skin as much as you should.  All that dead skin and gunk can be on your skin when you don’t exfoliate.  Skin that’s exfoliated can absorb products and makeup better!  Think of your skin as a canvas, it should be clean and smooth when we apply makeup or any type of skincare product.
