Should you be using an exfoliant in your skin care routine?

Posted by on 4/30/2018

Whether your skin cleansing regimen is basic or complex, an exfoliant might be what’s missing in your daily lineup.

Exfoliant is Key

Many skin care professionals say exfoliating is one of the most important things you can do to nurture healthy and glowing skin. Exfoliating smoothes skin because it removes dead and dry skin cells that build up over time. Dead cell accumulation can clog pores, cause acne, dull skin, create ingrown hairs, and promote wrinkles.

There are other methods to smoothen skin, such as invasive lasers, chemical peels, or injections, all of which can raid your pocketbook. However, exfoliating with a liquid product blended with effective ingredients can be equally effective and save thousands.

Exfoliate on Face and Body

Liquid exfoliant is important for your face, however most people don’t know it’s just as important to exfoliate the rest of your body. While our face tends to get the most attention for obvious reasons, the remaining skin on our body is not immune to dead cell accumulation.

The body is composed of approximately 10 trillion cells, with specifically 1.6 trillion being skin cells.

We lose upwards of 40,000 skin cells every hour and in a day’s time, one person can lose almost a million skin cells.

But these dead skin cells don’t necessarily fall off, they can build up and clog pores causing skin to have a rough feel.

Exfoliating over your entire body can keep skin soft and hydrated as well as even out skin tone. It can help in preventing body acne in places like the back, chest, arms, buttocks and more. Also, exfoliating works to prevent ingrown hairs because dead skin cells can clog follicles.

How Often Should I Exfoliate?

How often you exfoliate depends specifically on your skin type. If you have normal skin, exfoliating is recommended two or three times per week. For sensitive skin, you should exfoliate less.

Exfoliating more than that can cause healthy skin cells to weaken and for your skin to get irritated and sore.
