There are numerous benefits to skin exfoliation, which is the removal of dried dead skin cells on the surface of the skin. Exfoliation is considered an important aspect of a home skincare routine for face and body because it helps many skin problems. Exfoliating both the face and the body on a regular basis is part of a good home care regime. However, it’s also important not to strip away too many of your natural oils, so a good balance is essential.
Exfoliating increases blood circulation, breaks down toxins, and encourages new skin cells to come through. It’s a good idea to drink lots of water to drain toxins and to help moisturize the new skin cells. After exfoliating, it’s also essential to apply a good moisturizer to hydrate the skin from the outside in. Also, be careful not to expose your exfoliated skin to UV rays, sun, or a sunbed for at least 24 hours.
If you have blemished skin, using an exfoliator on your face or body may help to stop a breakout. At the same time you must be careful not to dry out the skin and cause irritation. That’s why the staff at the Medical Aesthetics of Virginia suggests the experienced esthetician at their facial spa in Norfolk, VA, ensures you are exfoliating properly to prevent bacterial infections and spots.
