What would you say if I told you all your problems will be solved if you started exfoliating ? Okay, not your bills or boyfriend problems. We’re talking about those little skin problems – lumps, bumps and well… not so smooth skin.
“BUT I LOVE ROUGH LEGS!”
Said no one ever.
Trust us. Adding exfoliation to your weekly or even daily routine will be beneficial in more than one way. We want you to know that we care about you and your cracked heels.
How Do I Know If I Need To Exfoliate? A simple test is to take a piece of clear tape and apply it to the forehead. Rub it gently and remove. Look at the tape, and if there are little pieces of flaky skin (being your dead skin cells), then girl, you need to start scrubbing!
Why Is Exfoliation So Important? Exfoliation is considered one of the most important techniques that you can perform on your skin to resolve certain skin problems as well as to achieve healthy and glowing skin.
When old skin cells start to pile up on the surface of the skin, it can leave skin looking dull, rough, and dry. Furthermore, the build-up of dead skin cells can result in excess oil and clogged pores, leading to blemishes, acne and bumps (keratosis pilaris). Also, hair can get trapped under the skin cells causing ingrown hairs.
Sounds lovely doesn’t it? NOT!
Adding exfoliation to your daily or weekly routine you can kiss bad skin good bye.
Use fake tan? Scrubbing is also a great way to prepare you skin for your new tan in a can – or better more, remove any tan or tan mistakes around your feet etc you may have made.
Also, Exfoliating will help you achieve a closer shave. Shaving’s not as easy when the razor has to fight through layers of build-up first.
Finding a body scrub that has natural fighting antibacterial agents are also a good way to help treat skin problems.
So that concludes our session on why your dead skin is the worst. Preventing skin problems is always better then treating them.
So start scrubbing!
