Why You Need to Add Exfoliating to Your Beauty Routine
As we age, the rate of our cell regeneration begins to slow down. Leading to old skin cells staying on the surface of your skin longer resulting in dull, rough and dry skin. Several of my clients at the salon ask me how they can restore their skin and bring back some of its natural shine. I like to recommend making exfoliating part of their skincare routine.
What is Exfoliation?
Exfoliation is a method of removing the top layer of dead skin cells and encourages the newer to cells shine through. There are plenty of products such as scrubs and facial buffers that are excellent and help leave your skin looking healthier and brighter. Our favorite exfoliator products at Visions is by BeautiControl because it is both affordable and effective.
Can You Over Exfoliate?
Most experts recommend exfoliating no more than twice a week. If you exfoliate too often, you run the risk of stripping away important natural oils that your skin needs. Maintaining a healthy balance is very important to your skin’s overall health.
Exfoliating increases circulation and helps promote a healthy balance of oils on your skin. Maintaining balance helps prevent breakouts and acne. Other benefits include:
- Removing old skin cells encourages new skin cells to grow
- Draws out blackheads
- Prevent clogged pores
- Break up pigmented cells caused from aging
If you suffer from naturally dry skin, a health regime of exfoliating and hydration may be exactly what you need in order to find a good balance for healthy skin.
Not Just for Facials
Some women suffer from ingrown hairs resulting from leg or bikini waxes. Ingrown hairs can often become infected and easily irritated making sensitive areas sore. If you suffer from ingrown hairs on your legs or bikini areas, exfoliating can help remove dead skin and allow your ingrown hairs to break through.
