The Importance of Exfoliating


Has your skin been looking dull, lifeless, and congested? Consider adding an exfoliating product into your regular skin care routine. This is essential in deeply cleansing the skin and removing a build-up of dead skin cells, makeup and dirt that are clogging your pores and causing acne.

Although you may be cleansing your skin every day, you may notice that your skin is still looking congested and is heavily prone to acne. This is due to the build up of environmental toxins that are within the deeper layers of your skin that your cleanser just can’t reach! By adding an exfoliator into your routine 2-3 days a week, you’ll be able to decongest your pores, and remove the dead skin and sebaceous glands that are clogging the skin with oil.

Another important reason to include an exfoliator in your skincare routine as it boosts all the results you’re able to get from facial treatments and your other skincare products. When your skin is clogged, the deeper layers of your skin can’t receive the benefits of all of your serums, moisturisers and more. The clearer your skin is, the more it will soak up products and benefit from them. This also means a much smoother application for your makeup, with the removing of any flaky skin, fine lines and of course acne!
