Most of us don’t realize when our skin starts looking dull. No memo goes out after all! It’s a slow process. And while we may use that favorite scrub once a week, it only does a very superficial job of exfoliation. And some at-home scrubs can be dangerous (always avoid apricot and walnut seed scrubs!).
Goodbye Post Summer Skin Blahs!
After a long summer, there’s an increasing need for proper exfoliation. This is because dead tanned skin cells can make our appearance look particularly dull.
According to the Healthline:
Exfoliation can leave your skin looking brighter and improve the effectiveness of topical skincare products by enhancing absorption.
Regular exfoliation can also help prevent clogged pores, resulting in fewer breakouts.
Long-term exfoliating can increase collagen production. Collagen is key to glowing, vibrant skin.
A good, safe skin scrub truly actually rejuvenates your skin (your skin is an organ after all).
Benefits of a seasonal exfoliation
Unclog pores. Our skin accumulates dead skin, oils, old make-up and other skincare products…even pollutants. This means skin that doesn’t “breathe” easily. Exfoliation unclogs pores safely.
Prevents acne. Often the core issue of many types of acne is clogged pores, often oil. Consistent exfoliation prevents acne from starting in the first place.
Maximizes other skincare products. It all comes back to those clogged pores, which prevent that expensive moisturizer of yours from penetrating deeply and doing its job maximally.
Evens skin tone. Dead skin cells do more than just make our skin look dull; it creates uneven skin tone. Sometimes the difference is subtle but you notice it. Exfoliation evens out skin tone for a smoother overall look.
