exfoliating helps to keep your skin silky soft and smooth by buffing away and removing dead skin cells.
Your skin naturally sheds dead skin cells every 30 days or so. When this happens, new skin cells form the top layers of your skin. If those dead cells don’t shed, it can result in dull, dry and flaky patches.
Exfoliating is the process of helping to speed up that process by removing dead skin cells from the surface of your skin. You can exfoliate your skin by using a purpose-made chemical or granular exfoliating product or an exfoliation tool such as a pumice stone, exfoliating shower puff or an electric cleansing/exfoliating brush.
How Often Should You Exfoliate?
We recommend exfoliating your skin 2 to 3 times a week as part of your weekly skincare routine. Exfoliation is all about balance. it’s important to buff away dead skin cells you also want to take care not to strip away too many of your skin’s natural oils.
How to Exfoliate Your Skin?
When exfoliating, it’s important to be gentle on your skin. Being too harsh can be drying and could lead to microtears. Exfoliating scrubs and creams are best used on damp skin so lather up and exfoliate your skin during your morning shower or night-time bath. make small, circular motions over the area you want to exfoliate. Exfoliate each area for 1 to 2mins seconds then rinse off with warm water. After exfoliating, apply a nourishing body moisturiser (Beckyglow lotion/oil) to help keep your skin glowing.
