Why is Exfoliation Important?

Exfoliation is the removal of dead skin cells on the skin surface. This can be quite simply removed with a good facial scrub. If the dead skin is not removed, the underlying skin is not as healthy as it should be.

Exfoliation is particularly important as we get older because our cell regeneration slows down. The body is slow at shedding skin cells whilst it is attempting to generate new ones.

When old skin cells start to pile up on the surface of the skin it can leave the skin looking dull, rough and dry. This build up can lead to excess oil and clogged pores resulting in acne and blemishes.

Exfoliation helps the skin pores to open up. This means that moisturising products can penetrate more deeply into the skin which in turn means that the product is more effective in hydrating the skin.

If you want to have radiant glowing skin, exfoliate two to three times a week. If exfoliation is done in excess of the suggested times, it can result in the skin losing its moisture and the skin drying out. In addition, look for a facial scrub which is not too abrasive. If a scrub is too abrasive, it can be quite damaging to the skin.

My recommendation here is the Aluminé Exfoliating Pumpkin Facial Scrub which deep cleans and exfoliates your skin.

It contains Pumpkin enzymes combined with Apple and Almond Acids which dissolve the impurities in the skin’s pores. Apricot seeds gently polish the skin removing the dead skin and leaving the skin looking vibrant. The blend of Pumpkin Oil, Aloe Vera and Vitamin E protect and hydrate the skin to make it glow.

The Exfoliating Pumpkin Facial Scrub is really simple to use. You simply apply a small amount to damp skin and massage it over the face. It is then removed from the face by rinsing it thoroughly with warm water. I personally use this product and have been really impressed with the results.
