8 Benefits And 20 Tips On How To Do A Good Skin Care Exfoliation

February 08, 2017

Exfoliating is a type or process of facial treatment which is simply the removal of the dead cell from the skin.

 This process helps your pores to appear smaller bringing out a youthful and radiant glow from your skin.

  It assists your moisturizer and other skincare products to work efficiently.

  The exfoliating process takes place naturally on our skin every month where the skin removes dead cells from the skin after they have reached the epidermis which is the outer layer of the skin.

 But when they don’t flake off, it results to your complexion becoming dull and rough hindering the secretion of oil from the pores which result in the formation of blemishes which damage the skin. 

                             Tips and tricks on good skin exfoliation

Do not be hard handed on the skin that is scrubbing excessively.

When using an exfoliator that contains tiny sand – like particles, scrub gently to remove dead skin helping you to uncover newer skin cells for a flawless look.

If you have an injury on the skin, wait for it to heal before exfoliating or apply face oil on your face before exfoliating.

This oil will stand as a barrier or an extra layer which will protect the skin from direct penetration of the ingredients on your skin.

Concentrate more on areas where you have the dull, scaly or uneven complexion for better results.

Exfoliation is best carried out in the night before going to bed to give your skin enough time to repair, rejuvenate and revitalize.

When exfoliating the face, use products that are meant for face exfoliation.

Endeavor to always keep your face or body moisturizer if you are carrying out this process often.

Always stick to the instructions before doing exfoliation to prevent harms or facial issues.

Over exfoliating can result into irritations and inflammation of the skin.

The use of commercial products to exfoliate can do more harm than good to the skin.

Be careful when exfoliating as it causes dryness which can result in wrinkles on the face.

Always apply a sunscreen or sun block if you are going under the sun after exfoliation.

Always splash cold water on your face after exfoliation to close your pores.

Exfoliating should be done once a week for dry and sensitive skin type, twice a week for normal skin type and more than twice a week for oily skin type.

     For those with dry skin type, where the penetration of the moisturizer is hindered due to the presence of flakes on your skin.

 It encourages the breakout of pimples on your skin, but with good skin exfoliation, it will break the bonds between the dead skin cells helping your skin to transform from a dull and dry skin to a well moisturized and glowing skin.

     For those with oily skin, who their skin is prone to breakouts such as acne or blackheads should endeavor to avoid the use of physical scrubs that are rough or coarse as it will result in more facial issues which tend to be more dangerous to the skin.

 It is advisable to use face wash or an exfoliator that removes dirt and smash up the clogging of pores, so as to control the excess production of oil on the skin.

   For those with sensitive skin type, use an exfoliator that is rich in fruit or plant enzymes which will help to clarify and cleanse the skin without irritation, itching, and redness of the skin.

       For those with normal skin type, use an exfoliator that helps to eliminate fine lines and fade away spots making your skin more radiant and energetic.
