Welcome back #BAUSSEBABE!
As you probably know by now, exfoliation is a key step in a well-rounded skincare routine. By exfoliating, you’re removing dead skin cells from the surface of your skin. This could be done with a chemical, granular substance, or an exfoliation tool.
So, how many benefits can exfoliation really provide? Well, according to skincare experts - the answer is a lot. A regular exfoliation habit clears away dry and dead skin, increases the skin's radiance, clarity, and youthfulness – and that’s just the start!
Here are our top 5 benefits for exfoliating your skin:
1. IMPROVES SKIN RADIANCE
Did you know that skin naturally renews itself every 28 days? As we age, this process begins to slow down and dead skin cells begin to pile up making your skin look dull, rough, and sometimes even dry. When you exfoliate, you remove dead skin cells by breaking the bond that glue them together, allowing new skin cells to surface and giving you skin’s daily glow an immediate boost.
2. UNCLOGS PORES
As you sweep away dead and dry skin, along with other surface debris that might remain on your skin after cleansing, exfoliating can stop it from making its way into your pores- causing whiteheads and blackheads.
3. PREPS SKIN FOR NEXT STEPS
When dead, dry cells are removed and your pores are cleared, your skin will soak up anything you apply to it —reaping maximum benefits (this includes other skincare products, and make up as well!)
4. EVENS SKIN TONE
Exfoliating smooths the skin’s surface by sloughing off dry, flaky cells. This helps even out skin texture and minimize the appearance of discoloration.
5. STIMULATES COLLAGEN SYNTHESIS
Last but not least, regular exfoliation helps stimulate collagen synthesis to improve the skin's texture, integrity, and keep the skin looking plump, tight, and young. As such, exfoliation can offer anti-aging benefits, helping lessen the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
So babes, there you have it. Exfoliation is k-e-y to a happy healthy skin. If you’re unsure where to being, we suggest adding an exfoliating tool to your skincare regime.
