A Beginner’s Guide to Exfoliation

December 01, 2020 2 min read

Exfoliating is an essential part of the skincare routine. It removes dead skin using chemical peels, tools, and granular substances. We need to exfoliate regularly because our skin sheds dead cells every 30 days. When we don't remove these dead cells, it results in dry skin and clogged pores. Exfoliating can prevent this. It refreshes your skin and evens its tone, making you look and feel better. 

Here, we discuss the benefits of exfoliation, how you should do it depending on your skin type, and when it yields the best results. 

Advantages of exfoliation 

Exfoliation can improve your skin's appearance and make it look brighter. It prevents clogged pores, reduces breakouts, increases collagen, and minimizes fine lines. It also helps avoid skin infections and stubborn dead skin cells, giving you a natural healthy glow. Opting for a tender method will also help control blackheads. Moreover, a good exfoliant allows other skin care products like toners and serums to penetrate deeper into the skin for optimum results. 

For normal skin

If you can use new skin products without experiencing any irritation, you have normal skin. It means you can use the most exfoliating products available in the market. Applying them once a week will be enough to maintain your skin health. 

Oily skin

If your face looks greasy and shiny throughout the year, you have oily skin. Over exfoliating oily or acne, prone skin can cause irritation and blemishes. Use products that do not remove your natural skin oils and retain the moisture. One of the best ways is to create your DIY scrub using baking soda, turmeric, and egg whites to exfoliate your skin once a week. 

Dry skin

If your skin becomes flaky and rough after the wash, you have dry skin. Gentle exfoliation can help with dry and brittle looking skin. Use oil-based exfoliating products to retain moisture while getting rid of the dead skin cells. 

Sensitive skin

If your skin does not respond well to new products, it's sensitive. Anyone with sensitive skin should avoid chemical-based scrubs that are hard on the skin. A gentle exfoliant will clear your skin and deliver results without causing irritation and reddishness. 

When to exfoliate?

It depends on your skin type and requirements. However, we recommend that you exfoliate once a week with a gentle exfoliant. Choose a mild product that does not scratch and damage your skin at any point.
