We’re all told to exfoliate our skin regularly, but many of us ignore that advice, instead opting for a quick wash ‘n’ go during our busy morning and lazy nighttime routines. But exfoliating offers a multitude of incredible benefits and failing to do so can result in lackluster skin. So why should you exfoliate regularly?
It will improve its texture
There are times when our skin looks flawless, and times when our skin could do with a bit of TLC. By exfoliating regularly, these ‘off’ days become less regular. If you find your skin feels rough or dry, exfoliating will revive it, bringing blood flow to the surface and providing you with a glowy, smooth finish – even without the help of foundation!
It will fight the signs of aging
No matter how old we are – whether we’re in our 20s or late 60s, we will want to stay looking as youthful and fresh as possible. Contrary to what many think, exfoliating can actually reduce the signs of aging by unveiling the plumper skin underneath and get rid of the dull skin cells which make fine lines, wrinkles and dry skin stand out more.
It will reduce the amount of breakouts
No one is immune to the odd breakout, but there is a way you can reduce the chances of one happening – exfoliating. A good exfoliator will clean deep into the pores, removing clogged up oil and grime, which are responsible for causing pimples, blackheads and whiteheads.
It will even out skin tone
Uneven skin tones cause women a lot of distress nowadays as there’s not a lot you can do about it. But exfoliating can help to improve the skin’s appearance by getting rid of the older skin which may be hanging around and causing it to look less even.
Skin care products may be more effective
We all know to cleanse, tone and moisturize daily, but there’s no point in doing this if you’re not providing a good base for them to go on. Exfoliating the skin will ensure you reap the benefits of your expensive creams and potions, and guarantee they can do their job.
The best thing for our skin is to use natural products. And luckily, nature has provided us with some amazing creations that we can use on the skin. Sugar has been used for decades to help rejuvenate the skin and ensure it looks as bright, youthful and clear as possible. Why not see what all the fuss is about and give our organic sugar scrub a go?
