The body brush is gathering dust. The pot of body scrub remains sealed. You feel you need to carry out a regular full body scrub, but keep putting it off.
Why is it so important?
If you can picture a shelf with a layer of dust on it. What’s your first reaction? If you’re a normal thinking person, you grab a duster and some cleaning spray. You don’t let it build up and make the shelf lose its sheen and become less functional.
This is what happens to your body. Keeping a regularly exfoliated body allows you these benefits…
1) HEALTHY, GLOWING SKIN
Have you ever wondered how to get bright, glowing skin? Well, an effective exfoliator is the answer. Here’s why…
When applying makeup over dead skin, the surface is un-even. As a result, your skin can appear to be flaky and patchy and even feel rough in texture.
By gently exfoliating dry skin cells, the skin will appear to feel smoother and look refreshed as the cells are newer.
This will also improve the tone of your skin.
2) MINIMISES PORES
Pores are openings in the skin in which hair follicles grow.
Similar to small holes, when there is a build-up of dirt and dead skin, the pore will expand to accommodate for the increase.
As a result, this makes your pores larger and more visible to the eye.
Exfoliating removes the dirt in the pores and consequently minimises them.
3) REDUCES BREAKOUTS AND ACNE
Exfoliating is an essential way to manage breakouts and acne.
Many of us recognise the importance of cleansing our skin but under-estimate the power of exfoliating.
A deep exfoliation will help to un-clog your pores from excess oil which can lead to breakouts.
Therefore, if the excess oil and dirt is removed from the root of the cause, the amount of breakouts will most likely reduce.
