Are you looking for advice on how to exfoliate your skin? You’re in the right place!
There are many ways to obtain a smooth, healthy, glowing skin, and exfoliation is one of them. Using a good-quality product to improve your skin’s tone and texture is something every Maui Babe can do at home. However, if you’re not careful, it’s easy to overdo it or exfoliate the wrong way.
That in mind, here’s what you need to know about exfoliation and how to exfoliate your skin the right way at home.
What is exfoliation?
Exfoliation is the process of removing dead cells from the surface of your skin, either by using a tool – like a sponge or brush – or by using a scrub to smooth and refine your skin.
Why is it important to exfoliate?
As you are probably aware, the skin is able to naturally shed dead cells in order to make room for new skin cells periodically. However, dead skin cells may not shed completely, and when that happens, you may experience dry skin, flaky patches, and clogged pores. That’s where exfoliation comes in handy!
Exfoliating your skin on a regular basis can help improve the health of your dermis and reveal a healthier, brighter skin right away. Furthermore, when you exfoliate, you’re removing dead skin cells that would otherwise mix with your makeup residue, dirt, or sweat, making it more difficult for your skincare products to deliver worthwhile results. By exfoliating, you make it possible for your skincare products and treatments to work at their best potential by allowing them to really penetrate the epidermis.
How to exfoliate your skin?
Are you ready to find out how to exfoliate your babe skin?
Let’s start with the correct way to exfoliate the face. Start by washing your face with your daily cleanser, and after you’ve prepped your skin, apply a small amount of your exfoliant onto your face using circular motions, and avoid the eye area. Massage your face gently for as long as the product recommends it. After, rinse the product off with warm water and gently pat the skin dry with a clean towel.
Keep in mind that exfoliating your face should be done 1 – 3 times a week. Exfoliating too often may harm your skin, and it may strip your skin of its protective layer. The same can be said about exfoliating your body.
When exfoliating in the shower, apply a small amount of your exfoliating product onto your wet skin, using a circular motion. Concentrate on the areas of your skin that are rough or especially dry. Allow the scrub to penetrate the skin for 5 – 10 minutes. Then, rinse the product off with warm water and gently pat yourself dry with your towel.
