As you already know, summers are here. And it’s time for you to prepare your skin for the ill-effects of the weather outside: sweaty skin, sun damage, pimples, black spots, etc. Now, you may continue with your routine skincare regime, without skipping a single step. But, ask yourself if it is really right for your skin? Do you still see those flaky dry patches stuck to your skin, wondering what might have caused that? Well, you need not worry. Your skin just needs proper exfoliation.
What is skin exfoliation?
You might be wondering what exfoliation is? Right? If yes, let us first talk about what causes your skin to dry out, resulting in flaky patches and clogged skin.
Our skin renews every month, naturally shedding dead skin cells and allows new cells to settle. But sometimes this may not be the case. All your dead skin cells may not shed completely and instead clog to form large pores, causing your skin to break. This generally happens in summers, causing the oil on your face to deposit in different areas.
Exfoliation helps remove these dead skin cells completely from your skin by using exfoliation tools like scrubs, brushes, and even your fingers. This process will get rid of patchy skin, excess oil, and even help brighten your skin. What will happen if you do not exfoliate your skin? You may experience a difference in your skin colour, dark patches due to pigmentation of the skin, and pores may enlarge.
Now that you know what exfoliation is and what all it can do to your skin, let us jump to the benefits of exfoliation:
- Unclogs Pores: The key benefit of exfoliation is that it helps unclog and cleanse pores. It also prevents blackheads and whiteheads and removes the oil that is stuck under the dry skin.
- Prevents acne: When you clean your skin, all your unwanted pores, including acne, will disappear! You can use a scrub containing small beads so that your skin is not exposed to anything harsh. Reducing the oil from your skin will directly prevent acne.
- Other skin care products can penetrate deeper: When a layer of oil and dead skin cells deposit on your skin, there is a wall created, which does not allow any other product to work on your skin. Exfoliating your skin unclogs all the pores and gets rid of dead skin, making your skin smoother. This will allow the rest of your skincare products to work better.
- Ensures an even skin tone: People with dark patches on their skin, hyperpigmentation and acne know how difficult it is to get rid of it. Exfoliating your skin can prevent all this and make your skin tone even. You may also notice that your rough skin is completely gone.
Now, with all these benefits, you must be ready to exfoliate your skin, but not sure how?
Exfoliation is a very simple step to follow, let us see how:
You can use a brush, sponge, gloves and even your fingers. All you have to do is use the tool gently in circular motion, with soap or any skincare product like the Alyuva Face Scrub. You can also use a scrub, suiting your skin type, which will help you prevent blackheads, whiteheads and large pores.
Summing it all up, exfoliation can leave your skin looking brighter and improve the effectiveness of topical skin care products on your skin. Just make sure to use the right skin care products.
