There's no denying that exfoliating is a vital part of every skin care routine. It does a great job of sloughing off dead skin cells and making the skin brighter and smoother. However, people tend to overlook the fact that some products or even the act of exfoliating itself can be harsh on the skin if done without caution.
That's why we took it upon ourselves to let you in on all there is to know about the process of exfoliation; its pros and cons, its benefits and products that might suit your skin type.
While scrubbing might be the first thing that comes to mind when you think of exfoliation, it's not the only type there is. Here are the types of exfoliation:
1. Prevents clogged pores
Sloughing off your dead skin cells and other debris on the surface prevents it from eventual making its way into your pores which could lead to whiteheads and blackheads.
2. Prevents acne
Aside from preventing clogged pores, regularly exfoliating could also prevent dreaded breakouts from happening as it prevents dirts, oil and sebum from entering into the pores.
3. Helps other skincare products penetrate deeper
Another benefit of exfoliating is the fact that skincare products like serums and moisturizers can do its job well without dead skin cells, sebum and oil impeding it as it penetrates deep into the skin’s layers.
4. Evens skin tone
We all know how frustrating it is to deal with dark spots, acne scars and hyperpigmentation. But skin experts say that making a habit of exfoliating actually improves these conditions over time because it works to smoothen and make the skin appear uniform.
5. Boosts circulation and lymphatic drainage
On a more scientific level, does wonders to the skin by ridding it of toxins and other unhealthy debris (lymphatic drainage) and boosts cellular health to reveal glowy and radiant skin (blood circulation).
6. Increases cell turnover
Aside from a boost in blood circulation, exfoliating can also make your skin look radiant by boosting the skin’s cell turnover— a process that renews damaged and old cells so new and healthy cells can take its place.
7. Stimulates collagen synthesis
Everyone and their mothers know that collagen is vital to keeping the skin look young and beautiful. And by exfoliating regularly can boost collagen production which in turn lessen appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
