We all have our skincare regime. We use sunscreen and quality cosmetics, we wash our faces and use moisturizers, but are we doing enough?
The truth is that we need to do those things, but we also need to exfoliate to maintain a healthy complexion. It helps our skin in the natural process of renewing itself. It makes our pores smaller and gives our skin the bright, dewey look we crave.
Exfoliation is the process of removing debris and oil from our pores. Using a cleanser helps, but the texture in most scrubs is what we need to get down into the pores and prepare the skin to receive all the goodness our amazing skin care products have to offer.
Many popular products we can find in the local drug store contain products like crushed walnut shells or apricot pits, plastic beads, or chemicals. They are marketed to the masses, but can often do more harm than good. The very products they use to exfoliate can cause microscopic damage to the skin, can cause inflammation, and can promote irritation and acne. We need the exfoliation, but not at the cost of healthy skin.
Gentle exfoliants are a better option, and organic products take the benefit over the top! Products containing natural oils and mineral supplements paired with exfoliants like sugar are perfect for facial skin. The sugar works to scrub down into the pores, removing dead skin cells, cosmetic microbes, and irritants, while immediately delivering those beneficial compounds directly to the prepared surface of the skin. Overuse of a scrub can be damaging as well, so know that most should only be used once or twice a week. Be sure to follow the instructions on your product’s label.
Following a great scrub with a routine including high quality toner, serum, then moisturizer is the best way to prepare your skin for the day, every day.
