Do you exfoliate your skin?

Cleansing your skin with micellar water is probably part of your regular routine. Of course, you want your skincare products to penetrate your skin perfectly. But did you know that dead skin cells also form a kind of barrier that makes products less effective? Remove dead skin cells by exfoliating your skin and to make your products more effective. How? Read on and enter the wonderful world of exfoliation.

What is exfoliation?

Exfoliation is a gentle way to remove dead skin cells from the upper skin layer. Your skin has several layers, and the top layer mainly contains dead skin cells that protect the skin from external factors. New cells are formed underneath this top layer. These new, healthy skin cells make your skin look radiant. The more you remove any dead skin cells, the more radiant your skin will be.

What are the benefits of exfoliating?

First of all, exfoliating your skin on a regular basis makes your skin healthy and radiant in the long term. Removing dead skin cells gives you these benefits:

  • Your pores are cleansed and smaller
  • Your wrinkles are less visible
  • Your skin is better hydrated thanks to a stable moisture balance
  • Your skin shows fewer impurities

And perhaps the most important benefit of exfoliation is that your skin will absorb your facial care products better. Your regular routine will have better results as the active ingredients penetrate deeper into the skin.

If you exfoliate your skin regularly, skincare products penetrate deeper into the skin. The products become more effective and your skin will glow."

How often should I exfoliate?

There’s no such thing as a standard exfoliation regime. It depends mostly on your skin and the type of product you use to exfoliate.

If you have sensitive skin, it’s advisable to gradually integrate your exfoliant into your routine rather than use it every day right away. Allow your skin get used to the exfoliating ingredients and then increase the frequency of use.

There is also a big difference between exfoliants: they range from soft serums to deep cleansers and skin repair ampoules. For example, you can use a serum on a daily basis, but the recommended interval for deep cleansers such as Pimple Cleanser is twice a week. The choice depends primarily on your skin and the products you prefer to use.

How often you exfoliate depends on your skin type and the products you use. A serum can be used daily, whereas weekly use of a deep cleanser is recommended."

When should you start exfoliating?

Exfoliation is a natural process that never stops: the body sheds dead skin cells and replaces them with new skin cells. An important change occurs as we age: the cell renewal process slows down, resulting in visible fine lines, wrinkles and sagging skin. By intentionally exfoliating your skin, you will accelerate the cell renewal process to what it used to be. It is recommended to start at the end of your twenties. That is usually when your natural cell renewal starts to slow down.

Oh, and remember, it’s never too late to start exfoliating: better late than never.

Tips for after exfoliating your skin
