7 great reasons to exfoliate your skin

by Eduardo Figueroa | | 0 Comments

we all want healthier-looking skin. this is possible by having a good skincare routine in place. cleansing and moisturizing your skin on a regular basis are clearly important steps of that routine, but if you want your skin to look fresh and rejuvenated, exfoliating--once or twice a week for mild exfoliation, more often if you have oily skin--is the way to go. when you exfoliate, you're helping your body get rid of old dead skin cells, and it makes your skin glow, revealing radiant, softer skin. here are 7 significant benefits for making exfoliating a big part of your skincare routine.

even out your skin tone

skin discoloration is a big concern for a lot of us. exfoliating is a powerful tool that you can use to fight against an uneven skin tone. when you exfoliate, you’re removing dead skin cells and at the same time speeding the skin renewal process. this allows smoother, healthier skin cells to take over and improve your skin tone with new skin that was hiding underneath the surface.

get a smooth, clean shave

shaving is one those mundane beauty chores that we all have to do. if you want a closer shave and glowing skin, try exfoliating before you shave. make it a pampering experience by using a skincare tool. dull skin and clogged up razor blades will be a thing of the past.

improve your skin texture

when your skin feels dry or dull (especially during winter), dead cells are preventing your skin from absorbing your skincare products. exfoliate regularly to remove the dead skin cells and moisturize for healthy looking skin all year round.

prevent breakouts and help clear acne

exfoliation keeps your pores clean and unclogged which helps reduce breakouts and clear acne. pores that are clogged with dead skin cells and excess oils from your skin lead to causing pimples and blackheads. exfoliate regularly to reduce the occurrence of blemishes. for acne-prone skin, use an exfoliating tool that is safe for deep cleansing when you have skin issues.


better absorb skincare products

one of the biggest benefits of exfoliating on a regular basis is how it helps your makeup and face creams go on more smoothly. sometimes you think a product you’re trying out isn’t working, but in reality what’s happening is that you have layers of dead skin cells piling up on your skin not allowing your skin care products and makeup to do their job. before you throw away that expensive bottle of face serum, exfoliate more often, so that your skincare products will be able to penetrate your skin and give you the results you are looking for.

fight signs of aging

as you get older, your skin becomes drier with less elastic and takes longer to shed dead skin cells. this causes wrinkles and fine lines that are more noticeable. exfoliating accelerates the natural process of getting rid of dead cells, evens out your skin tone like we mentioned on benefit #1 and gives you glowing, younger looking skin.

reduce the appearance of large pores

clogged pores can result in acne and breakouts. even worse when pores are clogged they appear larger, which is something nobody wants. you can’t reduce the size of your pores, but you can lessen their appearance by exfoliating. this gets rid of the dead cells clogging your pores and leaves your skin with a healthy glow.
