Now that Autumn is upon us, and we start to pile-on the layers, don't neglect to exfoliate your skin. Let's keep that same summertime energy! Your skin will remain in need all year round.
Exfoliation removes the barrier of dead skin cells clogging the skin and uncovers new skin, if done properly. It is a popular skincare step due to its many positive benefits. The regimen can leave your skin looking brighter and smoother. However, over-exfoliating can cause issues too when done excessively, which can then lead to skin irritation and inflammation. The best time to exfoliate is in the morning as it is a great time for getting rid of those dead skin cells since our skin repairs itself at night. You can use our Cocoa Sugar Polish , or make your own scrub, if you are feeling adventurous.
For instantly glowing skin here are some benefits of exfoliation:
Many women of colour encounter Hyperpigmentation, and additonally for pregnant women, Melasma. There are several over the counter products to tackle hyperpigmentation and unfortunately some individuals resort to skin lightening products which can cause more damage in the long run. Exfoliating can brighten and tone all skin conditions and its safe too!
Skin problems such as acne can be frustrating, exfoliating helps to unclog pores which leads to reducing acne. A gentle non-abrasive exfoliant is best for the face which will help to reduce skin texture
It can also help for your moisturizer to penetrate deeply into the skin, not bad right?
Great for stimulating collagen synthesis which enhances the skin’s texture and keeps it looking young. Also helping to promote skin’s firmness. Who does not want gorgeous soft skin? You can thank us later.
