Scrub-a-Dub-Dub: How exfoliating can give you the best skin

If there was a way to ensure your skin would always feel silky soft and continue looking healthy, would you want to know more?

Well, there IS more to tell you and the secret does not involve much effort at all! All you have to do is add EXFOLIATING at least once a week (but no more than three) to your skincare routine and voila you’ll see and feel the results in a matter of a few weeks.

It is a fact that skincare routines that include exfoliating can have a significant long-term impact on the overall quality of a person’s skin. Some of the worthwhile benefits of exfoliating your skin include:

Increased Blood Circulation

Lets start off with an important health benefit! Exfoliating requires you to scrub your entire body in a circular motion. This in turn actually improves blood circulation by stimulating blood flow and bringing your blood closer to the surface of the skin. This is an awesome benefit of exfoliating as blood circulation is one of the most important functions in the body, it supplies oxygen to the brain and other organs within the body. It promotes healthy skin and cell growth, with that being said anything that improves blood circulation is a must do – let the exfoliating begin!

Improved Texture and Tone

The key to youthful and healthy-looking skin is radiance. As we age radiance weakens as our skin cell turnover rate starts to slow down. This leads to the appearance of rough, dry skin, enlarged pores, and dull looking skin. Exfoliation removes excess dead skin buildup, which in turn stimulates cell turnover, and results in a more polished, smoother, glowing surface.

Creating and Maintaining an Even Skin Tone

Exfoliation lightens abnormal pigmentation. Including exfoliation to your weekly skincare routine will help create an even skin tone and you should be able to see a real difference within 8 to 12 weeks. The sun is the reason for much of the abnormal pigments on your body so of course maintaining an even skin tone will not be possible without the use of regular sun protection and shielding your sensitive skin from sun damage. Exfoliation and sun protection go hand in hand to ensure even skin tone.

Unclogged Pores

Blemishes are any discolouration, spot, or mark on the skin, some are caused by the sun as mentioned above and some are caused by clogged pores. Exfoliators contain small grains that mechanically slough off dead cells and unclog pores, thus further reducing the appearance of blemishes.  

Ingrown Hairs No More

Regular exfoliation can get rid of future ingrown hairs by shedding off the dead skin at the surface and ensuring it doesn’t settle on the surface as a stubborn layer. With the dead skin out of the way growing hairs can avoid getting trapped underneath and risk growing in the wrong direction. Exfoliating prevents hair from turning into the annoying and sometimes painful ingrown hairs we would rather avoid.

Relaxing and Stress Relief

Lastly, getting in a hot shower with a delightful smelling body scrub is a great way to relax and scrub away any stress you may have experienced throughout the week.  

Over the past 2 decades, exfoliation has gained in popularity because of how quickly you can see a difference and the ease of use. Now go Exfoliate and say HELLO TO SILKY SOFT RADIANT SKIN!
