Scrub your way to glowing skin with regular exfoliation.  

 

When it comes to beauty goals, glowing skin has to be at the top, next to youthful skin. Here’s a little life hack for you – exfoliation will help you achieve both those goals.

Facial exfoliation is already a key step in your skincare routine, right? But we bet the rest of your body doesn’t get that sort of TLC. While focusing on your face is great don’t forget that the rest of your skin needs the same care and attention.

Here’s a little exfoliation 101 to remind you of the importance of exfoliating, not just your face – but your body as well for that all over glow.

 

What is exfoliation?

Exfoliation is the process of removing dead skin cells from the surface of the skin and is one of the most important aspects of your skincare routine for face and body. If you take good care of your skin, but you’re not exfoliating, your skin isn’t as healthy as it could be. Our skin naturally sheds dead skin cells on its own but exfoliating gives the process a much-needed boost.

 

How often should you exfoliate?

You should exfoliate your face and body at least once a week, but not more than twice as you don’t want to strip away too much of your body’s natural oils. Remember to keep a good balance if you don’t want to end up with dry skin.

For those hard to reach places (or if you’re just looking for an exfoliation session while allowing yourself ultimate relaxation) consider DrSpa® Body Crystal treatment. Enjoy a full body polish followed by a wrap and end off with a luxurious aromatherapy massage that’s sure to leave you blissed out.

 

Importance of exfoliation

The process of cell regeneration slows with age, meaning that the body is slower at shedding skin cells and generating new ones. If old skin cells aren’t properly removed from the surface of the skin, they start to pile up and leave skin looking dry, dull and rough. This build-up of dead skin cells can also lead to clogged pores and excess oil, resulting in acne and blemishes.

DrGL® Cleanser Scrub is the perfect complement to your daily facial cleansing routine. Ultra-fine scrub removes flaky dead cells and blackheads, leaving skin polished, refined, regenerated and ready to fully absorb the full benefits of the skincare steps that follow.

If you don’t exfoliate regularly, light isn’t able to reflect off your face properly, which is one of the reasons behind dull looking skin.

 

Benefits of exfoliation

Regular exfoliation encourages new cell production which hydrates and nourishes the skin, decreasing signs of premature aging for smoother, younger and healthier skin. On top of that, exfoliation improves blood circulation, which improves skin’s elasticity and restores colour for a healthy look.

Apart from removing dirt stuck deep inside your pores, exfoliation also reduces the appearance of large pores. By decongesting your pores through exfoliation, they diminish in size giving you a healthy, polished glow.

Serums and moisturisers are better absorbed into skin that’s not blocked by layers of dead cells and dirt. Exfoliating allows your skin to properly absorb key ingredients from skincare steps that follow, helping it to get the care it deserves. A good, consistent exfoliation routine will even out your skin tone in the long term so you can say goodbye to discolouration and pigmentation.

Since exfoliation evens out the skin, it helps your makeup go on smoothly and allows your sunscreen to better protect your skin. Take your exfoliation to the next level with some professional help.

 

If you don’t exfoliate on the regular, now’s the time to start! Get rid of those dead skin cells and let your skin shine.

 

XOXO,

Your Beauty BFF
