Exfoliation is a very important process in your skin care regimen, but is often overlooked in the rush of the day. Skincare requires consistency and time, and it is only those that give their skin this kind of time who can flaunt smooth, soft, glowing skin - unless you are just blessed!
Whether you have dry skin or oily skin, exfoliation is important. Having a regular exfoliating regimen is essential to the smooth and glowing skin.
Before you even think about exfoliating, you need to know what it is and what it does. To put it simply, it is the process of removing the dead skin cells from the body, so your newer, fresher skin cells are left at the top. Even exfoliating once, you'll notice your skin will feel smoother and look much more radiant than it did just before.
You’ll also find that it can clear the pores of dirt and oils much easier, so you’re left with cleaner skin ready for your day or night ahead.
Exfoliation can also rejuvenate the skin. During the winter, it is easy to want to hide away. It is during this time that your skin may not get as much sun as it needs, and can start to look dull. The drying effects of winter weather can also cause a build-up of dead skin, resulting in flaking or roughly textured skin. Again, after a single exfoliation, your skin will not only feel smoother, brighter and healthier, but you will also create the optimum surface for absorbing all your serums and hydrators - thus making them more effective.
By creating a beauty routine that you "strictly" follow throughout the year, you will have glowing skin with or without the sun all year round.
How to Exfoliate Dry Skin
Dry skin makes everything from skincare to makeup application challenging. Whether you're experiencing flaking or your makeup cakes into fine lines, effective exfoliation goes a long way towards the treatment and reversal of dry skin.
Whether you have a chronically dry skin type or your skin has become temporarily dehydrated, we recommend choosing one of the following two types of exfoliating products:
Dry skin is likely to be a little sensitive, so excess exfoliation can be very harmful for this kind of skin (we recommend no more than 2 times weekly). In the process of exfoliation, you are expected to use a mildly abrasive product so that your dead and dry skin can peel off and reveal a healthy layer underneath.
Step 1: Hydrate Your Skin
Before you start exfoliating, ensure that you wet your body or face thoroughly.
Step 2: Exfoliate your Skin
The process of exfoliation for dry skin involves using a mildly abrasive cleaner such as a sponge or a loofah, or an exfoliating product that is specifically meant for dry skin.
Step 3: Moisturize Your Skin
Dab your face and or body dry, apply a moisturizer designed specifically for dry skin, and apply it well.
