Most of us know that exfoliating is a good way to shed that top layer of dead skin and uncover that soft layer of beautiful skin underneath. However, there are several other benefits to exfoliating with skincare products. First off, exfoliating is not just for your facial skin. You can exfoliate your legs, lips, feet and scalp. Following are a few of the benefits of using exfoliating skincare products:
FACIAL SKIN EXFOLIATION
Fights signs of aging
With time, the skin’s natural ability to shed dead cells decreases, making dry skin and face wrinkles more obvious. Removing the dead skin reveals fresher, brighter and younger-looking skin. DDF Anti Aging Glycolic 6% Exfoliating Wash is a great face wash for facial skin exfoliation.
Reduces Dark Spots
When you get rid of that top layer of skin, you diminish any leftover scarring or discoloration from blemishes.
Evens Skin Texture
The beads in exfoliation skincare products polish the skin, leaving it softer and smoother.
Prevents pimples and blackheads
Allowing your pores to get clogged with dead skin and oil may result in pimples.
Prevent dry, flaky lips
If you allow dead skin to accumulate on your lips, they become dry and chapped and lipsticks may appear flaky.
Reduce chest breakouts and dullness
The skin on your chest produces just as much oil as your face and back. Exfoliate the chest once a week to keep skin looking vibrant and to prevent breakouts as a result of trapped dead skin and oil in the pores.
Promotes Circulation and Hair Growth
As it is, the scalp constantly sheds dead skin. Additionally, styling products lead to buildup. Exfoliating removes debris and dead skin as well as unclogging follicles. Nioxin Scalp Renew is a product made just for this purpose.
Prevent Back Acne
If not exfoliated, the back can get clogged with oil and dead skin. Murad Acne Body Wash is a good body scrub to use to maintain clear skin.
Exfoliate Hands and nails to prevent the build up of dead skin cells.
Remove dead white skin
If you do not usually wear socks, your feet may get dry and cracked, particularly in the heels.
