There are many benefits of exfoliating your skin – from getting an acne-free skin to getting a closer shave. Regular exfoliation helps to get rid of dead skin cells and reveal much smoother and softer skin in a matter of a few seconds. When done correctly, it helps to maintain healthy skin and fight aging. Your face isn’t the only area to exfoliate, though. It’s also important to exfoliate your hands and the whole body that suffers from dead skin cells, debris, and dirt. Aim to exfoliate your body twice a week and make sure you use your best moisturizer after that. If you have a very sensitive skin, try using mild face and body scrubs once a week. Anyway, don’t skip this step. Here’s why you should incorporate exfoliation into your skincare routine:
1. Prevent breakouts
If you experience breakouts, whiteheads or blackheads, exfoliating your skin can help to keep pores unclogged and clean. Acne is caused when pores get clogged up with sebum, dead skin cells, and germs. Keep your acne under control by keeping your pores clean. But don’t overdo it. Don’t scrub too hard and use scrubs that are right for your skin. Otherwise, over-exfoliation will cause many skin problems, even worse than breakouts.
