When it comes to a skincare routine, exfoliation is an important step. Whether you use a physical exfoliant which is a substance with a grainy texture that is to be massaged into one’s skin to remove debris from skin surface or a chemical exfoliant which is a blend of safe-to-skin acids that dissolve the debris chemically, the process is enjoyable. It makes you feel refreshed.
You may wonder that if exfoliation is known to slough off dead and dry skin, why you should do it if you have oily skin. However, skin experts say that an exfoliant like Biologique Recherche Singapore P50 lotion, which is enriched with antioxidants and brightening agents, does a lot for the beauty and health of your skin, no matter whether your skin is dry or oily. Here are only a few of the many benefits exfoliation has for your skin.
1. Unclogs Pores
Dead and dry skin along with other debris makes its way into your skin pores and cause blackheads and whiteheads. Once these two are formed, they are extremely difficult to get rid of. Dead skin clogs the pores. Thus, when sebaceous glands release oil, it doesn’t get a way out and remains trapped under the dry skin. This leads to breakouts due to the trapped oil. In such a scenario, exfoliation is the best way to prevent them. It removes dead and dry skin, and all other surface debris that may be left on your skin after cleansing, so, your skin pores remain free of these.
2. Makes Other Skincare Products More Effective
As pores are unclogged due to exfoliation and the skin surface is smoothed and free from any dead or dry skin, your other skincare products can penetrate more deeply. Thus exfoliation helps moisturizers, serums and anti-aging creams to penetrate deeper into the skin. Obviously, when something packed with nourishing ingredients penetrates deeper, it can work better and more effectively. Thus exfoliants help you take the full benefit of your expensive moisturizers and serums.
3. Boosts Circulation and Lymphatic Drainage
Exfoliants stimulate oxygen-rich blood to nourish and feed the skin’s surface and stimulates lymphatic drainage for internal cleansing. The former promotes cellular health to return the glow and radiance of the skin and the latter removes toxins and other unhealthy debris from the skin, making it healthy and ultimately glowing.
4. Stimulates Collagen Synthesis
One of the greatest benefits of exfoliation is that it stimulates collagen synthesis due to which skin’s texture and integrity are improved, and skin looks firm, plump and young. Thus, exfoliation offers anti-aging benefits too.
So, have you decided to include a good exfoliant into your collection of skincare products?
