Exfoliating your skin is extremely important. Not only does it keep your skin free of dead skin cells, excess dirt & oil that can clog pores and create breakouts it can also help to increase blood flow and encourage the production of collagen which gives your skin that healthy plumpness and elasticity it needs. By exfoliating you are also revealing new skin that is fresh & bright. Healthy oils added into your exfoliant penetrate the skin to give it the hydration and moisture it needs to keep from drying out, cracking and creating bad habits that can further cause damage to the skin which can be very painful. Exfoliating also helps other skincare products because it allows them to go deeper into the skin after removing all the yuckiness that sits on top. Overall whether you prefer salt, sugar or pumice, exfoliating has many benefits and should be incorporated into your regime once or twice a week to keep your skin looking its brightest & healthiest possible.
