Smoother, more supple, and more beautiful skin? To get the glowing skin you've been dreaming of, it's essential to exfoliate your skin to give it a breath of fresh air.
What is the purpose of exfoliation?
Skin cells are renewed approximately every 28 days. As a result, their accumulation ends up clogging the pores and preventing the skin from breathing.
To avoid this, an important step in the skin care routine is exfoliation. In fact, exfoliation consists of removing the most superficial cells of the skin with small solid particles that removes impurities. It activates the skin's microcirculation and promotes cell renewal.
The skin is also more receptive to the active ingredients in the skin care products. However, if the scrub must shake the epidermis in order to push it to renew itself, it must do it gently. It is not a question of attacking the skin but of stimulating it! Choose gentle scrubs, especially for sensitive areas such as the face.
The right frequency of use
The frequency of a scrub depends on your skin type and its sensitivity. For normal to oily skin, it is recommended to scrub once or twice a week. On the other hand, if you have dry and sensitive skin, exfoliate your skin once a week to avoid the risk of irritating it.
As part of your skin care routine, always exfoliate before applying a mask or a skin care product in order to reinforce the penetration of the active ingredients. Finally, don't forget to moisturize your skin afterwards to protect it properly.
