The most important and most sensitive part of our body is the skin, which is also the largest organ of the body. The skin goes  through stress, harsh weather, bruises and blemishes, which will leave our skin cells  dead or unhealthy. The skin  is also one of the most important aspects of your home skincare routine for face and body. Meanwhile, exfoliation involves the removal of the oldest dead skin cells on the skin’s outermost surface. Exfoliation is involved in all facials, during chemical peels. The skin naturally sheds dead skin cells to create room for new cells every 30 days or so but sometimes dead cells do not shed completely. That is why exfoliation can be achieved by natural or chemical means. It’s also a form of personal hygiene, (caring for the skin).
Why should we care for our skin more by exfoliating if the food we eat are highly nutritious and they consist of proteins that builds the skin and makes them glow? These are questions most ladies ask, especially those who do not believe in exfoliation either chemically or naturally.
Here are 5 good reasons why we should exfoliate the skin.
1. Blemished Skin:
 Exfoliation is important for people with blemished skin to use an exfoliator on the face or body at least twice a week. Some people believe the best way to stop a break-out is to strip the skin, killing bacteria, but, this will also dry out the skin and cause irritation. We suggest removing dead cells while keeping the skin clean and hydrating with a good moisturising lotion – lighter than a cream – make sure  that you apply the lotion with clean hands to prevent bacterial infection and spots.
2. Post-Breakout, Red and Dark Marks:
After having a blemish on the skin there can sometimes be a dark mark left for a while. The best way to fade these dark marks is to exfoliate twice a week to remove those damaged skin cells and encourage new healthy skin tissue to grow through.
3. Clogged Pores:
If you suffer from clogged pores, exfoliation helps to draw out congestion, otherwise known as blackheads and whiteheads. Most common areas for breakouts are the nose, chin and forehead. Remember, twice a week on average.
4. Pigmentation:
Pigmentation is the dark area that comes from ageing, pregnancy and changes in your hormonal balance. These areas tend to become more apparent and darker as the skin ages. Exfoliation is beneficial for breaking up pigmented cells, encouraging them to fade. Regular targeted facials at your salon are also good to help promote healthy skin reproductions, helping these areas to fade.
5. Dry Skin:
If your skin is dry or dehydrated, you may find scaly or flakey areas which would benefit hugely from exfoliation. Once you have exfoliated an area of dry skin you can apply a moisturiser to the new skin cells.
In addition, drinking a lot of water helps in digestion, temperature regulation and of course helps dry skin.

Cheers!
