Hey there beautiful!
Are you tired of dull and tired-looking skin? Some are very familiar with, but some may not know exactly what causes that: build up of dead skin cells. If you're looking for an answer to how to get rid of dead skin cells, you landed on the right page. It's exfoliation!
What is exfoliating?
Exfoliating is a skincare process that involves removing dead skin cells from the surface of your skin. Our skin naturally goes through a cycle of skin cells dying and new cells growing, and dead skin cells can sit on the surface of skin until scrubbed or brushed away -- we do this via exfoliating. Exfoliating helps to speed up this regeneration process, leaving your skin looking fresh and bright, and promoting healing of skin irritation and breakouts.
Exfoliating is a dead skin cleanser
But what is a "dead skin cleanser?" A dead skin cleanser is simply a product designed to help clean away dead skin cells, revealing the newer, brighter skin underneath -- this can be a topical product or a brush system used to aid in exfoliating. There are many different types of dead skin cleansers available, from physical scrubs to chemical exfoliators, so be sure to choose one that's right for your skin type.
If you've heard of "skin cycling"...
And let's not forget about "skin cycling." This refers to the natural process of skin cells dying and being replaced by new cells. Exfoliating regularly can help speed up this cycle, keeping your skin looking its best. Keep exfoliating on a steady routine of once or twice a week (not daily) for best results in removing dead skin cells.
If you're now wondering if you really need to exfoliate, that of course is up to you. Adding yet another task to an already thorough daily skin care routine and body care to be done is not anyone's favorite (and if I'm honest, I can't say I'm perfect -- just don't tell me dentist I don't floss twice a day and we're even). So lets talk about why you need to exfoliate. The reasons to exfoliate are many, but here are the main ones: brighter skin, faster skin healing times, reduced acne, and smoother makeup application.
More than just a pretty face
One last thing: in this blog I've touched on general exfoliation -- that's right: your whole body. Should you exfoliate your whole body? Absolutely. The benefits of removing dead skin cells are endless and not just limited to your face. Using a body scrubber brush large enough for the whole body or a simple exfoliating product should do the trick, but don't forget to exfoliate your legs, arms, and torso on a regular basis to reveal your most glowing self.
Basically, exfoliating is a crucial step in your skincare routine and you should never skip it! By removing dead skin cells, you'll reveal the newer, brighter skin underneath and keep your skin looking fresh and radiant. So, go ahead and try a dead skin cleanser and enjoy the benefits of a healthy skin cycling process! Your skin will thank you for it.
