There are many benefits of exfoliating your skin from getting a soft skin to getting a close shave. Exfoliating will help to get rid of dead skin cells and reveal much smoother and softer skin! Check out a few benefits of exfoliating your skin!
1. Helps prevent breakouts
And it’s true! If you experience breakouts, whiteheads or blackheads, exfoliating your skin can help to keep pores unclogged and clean. Acne is caused when pores get clogged up with sebum, dead skin cells, and germs. Keep your acne under control by keeping your pores clean!
2. Improves texture
When your skin feels dry or rough, exfoliating is one of the easiest ways to revive dry and dull skin! I love that amazing feeling when I exfoliate my face or my arms, and my skin is super smooth! Exfoliate your skin regularly to keep it smooth and your beauty products look better!
3. Helps your skin to better absorb skin care products
There is nothing worse than spending lots of money on skin care products and knowing that your skin is not getting any of the benefits from them. The thing is that if you’ve the layers of dead skin cells piled up, even the high quality skin care products might not penetrate your skin. That’s why it’s so important to exfoliate your skin on a regular basis!
4. Helps fight the signs of aging
This is another great skin benefit of exfoliating your skin. As you get older, your skin’s natural ability to rebuild itself slows down. Dull and dead skin cells make dry skin, fine lines and wrinkles stand out even more. Exfoliate regularly and shed those dead skin cells and fight the signs of aging!
5. Helps get a better fake tan
Exfoliating helps not only skin care products to penetrate deeper, but also gives skin tanning products a clean and smooth canvas that allows for a longer lasting tan! Make sure you exfoliate your skin before you use cream tanning lotions or spray tans.
6. Evens out your skin tone
If you have an uneven skin tone then you should definitely think of exfoliating your skin. Exfoliating will help remove layers of dead skin cells as well as dirt and leftover makeup to reveal new, bright skin that is hiding underneath.
7. Helps get a closer shave
Well, shaving with a dull razor is a bad idea, right? However, shaving dull skin is also one of the biggest beauty mistakes! If you want to get a closer shave, try exfoliating your skin beforehand. It will help to get rid of dead skin cells that can clog up the razor blades, and give you a clean and smooth shave!
