Getting rid of dead skin cells is key to breathing new life into your skin and leaving it feeling refreshed. If we don’t remove the dead skin cells then they can act to clog pores, cause ingrown hairs and even wrinkles. Removing the dead skin cells helps to promote new skin growth meaning that your skin will feel fresher and look younger for longer.
One of the biggest things to remember when you’re adding exfoliating into your skin care regime is to make sure you do it properly. There’s no point in ticking the box if you’re just making your skin red and irritated as a result, but that doesn’t mean you should stop – it means you should reassess how you’re going about it. Make sure to avoid exfoliating onto dry skin (always splash it with water first), don’t do it daily (most people require twice a week tops) and don’t do it harder because you can feel it more (exfoliating shouldn’t hurt!).
Make sure to avoid exfoliating onto dry skin (always splash it with water first). You might think the more often the better to exfoliate, but this is where that saying ‘everything in moderation’ is truer than ever! Exfoliating your skin shouldn’t be done daily, and twice a week is just often enough!
