Face exfoliators are your best ally when it comes to young-looking soft skin.
You already know how important it is to wash your face and never go to bed with makeup on, apply some face cream in the morning and evening, and use a moisturizer. But how often do you exfoliate? If your answer is: hardly ever or never, keep on reading to find out why exfoliating is so beneficial and how to do it right.
Why Use Face Exfoliators?
Exfoliating is often neglected and yet, it’s an essential part of adequate skin-care routine. By doing it you remove the dead cells from your skin, making your skin smoother, radiant and more youthful. Exfoliation basically enables new skin cells to come to the surface, which makes your complexion look much healthier. Regular skin exfoliation helps unclog and reduce pores, diminish fine lines and wrinkles, prevent acne, even skin tone, improve texture and control excess oil. It also makes it possible for other beauty products to penetrate deeper into the skin and work better.
How To Properly Exfoliate?
When using mechanical exfoliator, wash your face and rinse with warm water. Then take a pea sized amount of exfoliator and massage it into your skin in a circular motion for about 5 seconds. Do it gently with little pressure. Rinse your face with lukewarm water and put on a moisturizer.
How Often Should You Exfoliate?
While regular exfoliation can do wonders for your skin, too much of it can do some serious damage. Generally, dermatologists agree that exfoliating two times a week is ideal for all skin types. Most of the experts say that once a week is not enough and more than three times is bad for your skin.
