Few people know that exfoliation is as important as cleansing the skin and so leave it out from their skincare routine. This should not be the case. Skin exfoliation at least once a week is necessary to help remove dead skin cells that leave your skin looking dull (something you may notice as you move into your 30’s) cause blackheads, whiteheads, and pimples. With regular exfoliation, your skin is left feeling smooth and looking radiant.
TIP: Facial exfoliators/scrubs have potent exfoliation properties, which is why many skin care manufacturers are now producing their own exfoliating/scrub products. There are a lot of options in the market and it pays to be a little critical. When looking for a facial exfoliator, look to choose one with small grains. This is proven to work more gently on the skin helping to remove dead skin cells rather than just scratching or scarring you skin. Dermalogica have created a number of excellent exfoliators for various skin types, by far the most popular being Daily Microfoliant which can be used every day leaving your skin looking fresh and radiant.
