You don’t have to head to the spa or book expensive dermatological appointments to improve the look of your skin. Get back to basics! Exfoliating daily is the simplest way to brighten skin tone and improve texture for just pennies a day. Here is why:
- 1. The Boost You Need for Brighter Skin
Your skin naturally renews itself approximately every 4 weeks. With age, this process slows down, and dead skin cells can begin to accumulate. The act of exfoliating helps to remove dead skin cells to allow fresh, new skin cells to come to the surface.
- 2. Improve Blood Circulation for a Healthy Glow
Exfoliating with a body scrub or face scrub can help stimulate blood circulation, which in turn (1) makes it easier for oxygen and nutrients to reach your skin cells and (2) helps your body remove toxins and waste.
- 3. Prevent Breakouts and Acne
Excess oil, make-up, sweat and dirt can accumulate on the surface of your skin and in your pores. Exfoliating regularly helps to get rid of the build-up that causes acne, whiteheads and blackheads and shrinks the appearance of enlarged pores.
- 4. Fight the Signs of Aging
Our natural ability to shed dead skin cells slows with age. Fine lines and wrinkles become more apparent, and even dark spots from former sun damage can appear darker with time. Regular exfoliation helps rejuvenate the skin, improve skin’s texture, brighten skin tone and reduce fine lines.
