Exfoliation: the often-overlooked step in your skin care routine

When most people think of glowing skin, they think of using deep moisturizers, serums and illuminators to brighten and smooth their face and body. But oftentimes, people forget about the crucial step that comes before these products – exfoliation.

 

Exfoliation is the process of removing dead skin cells to allow for new cells to grow. It’s a key process in achieving healthy, glowing skin, yet it is often left behind in skin care routines. But without exfoliation, achieving that perfect dewy look and radiant skin is difficult. 

 

If you’re still asking, “Do I really need to exfoliate?” The answer is a hard, “Yes.” If that’s not enough to convince you, here are some important reasons why you should never put aside exfoliation.

 

Exfoliation unclogs pores

 

A common reason for breaking out in those stubborn whiteheads and blackheads is the result of clogged pores. Clogged pores occur when dead skin cells aren’t shed. When pores can’t release oils and sweat, it often results in stubborn acne. Using our Skin Wise Organics Exfoliating Facial Scrub can help remove dead skin cells from the face, unclogging pores and helping prevent future breakouts.

 

It can help increase the absorption of other products

 

If you aren’t exfoliating, odds are much of your moisturizers and other products are not getting completely absorbed by your skin. But by shedding off dead skin cells, you can allow your products to directly reach the new skin underneath. Not only does this make your serums and moisturizers more effective, but it gives you more bang for your buck. 

 

Exfoliation evens skin tone

 

A lesser known benefit of exfoliation is improved skin tone. When the surface of your skin is uneven, products will be applied unevenly, resulting in shadows and dark spots. By removing dead skin cells and creating a smooth and even surface, you are also ensuring the outer layer of your skin is healthy and smooth, providing  an even look.

 

It can boost collagen production

 

Collagen is key; it can strengthen skin, boost elasticity and increase hydration. By exfoliating your skin, you are encouraging new skin cells to be produced, which produce the protein collagen. Removing dead skin cells, using products like the Skin Wise Organics Invigorating Body Scrub, can encourage the growth of new skin cells and help promote collagen production.
