Serums, toners, antioxidants, peel off marks and the list goes on but after using these products results are minimal, this situation leads you frustrated. You remember the glow on your Grand ma’s skin or your 60 plus neighbor looks younger than you. You wonder how people managed perfect skin in absence of such products.
Well! The answer is very simple. You are missing out a very important step in your daily skin care routine i.e. EXFOLIATION. Exfoliation is not something new we see our mothers and grandmothers rubbing tomatoes or banana peels on their skin. Well, that was the simplest form of exfoliation and helps to maintain glow on face.
Like many other things, Science has made exfoliation simple and easy for you. There are many products and treatments available in the market that makes the process of exfoliation easier.
WHAT IS EXFOLIATION?
Exfoliation is a skin care technique through which you remove your dead skin cells. By doing so your skin gets clearer and other skin care products can deeply penetrate.
You need to exfoliate more when you grow older, as your cell turnover reduces with time. Dead skin if not removed can cause discoloration, pigmentation and leaves a dull effect on the skin . Don’t ignore this step, an excess of anything bad. Too much exfoliation can negatively affect the skin.
TYPES OF EXFOLIATION:
There are two types of exfoliation which are:
- Chemical Exfoliation
- Mechanical Exfoliation
In mechanical exfoliation, face scrubs are used. These scrubs can be applied with hands or with the help of the tool. In chemical exfoliation chemicals like AHA and BHA peels (alpha- or beta hydroxy acids) are used to remove dead skin from the face.
In both type of exfoliation there are certain Do’s and Don’ts. One has to be very careful. Both methods are effective but require vigilance and careful handling.
TECHNIQUES FOR EXFOLIATION:
There are certain things you must keep in my mind before exfoliating, which are as follow:
- Choose the product according to your skin type. If cause irritation, discontinue immediately.
- Be very gentle while rubbing your face.
- Don’t forget to use a moisturizer after exfoliation.
- Make sure your hands and if any tool used is clean and sterilized.
- Focus on rough, dry patches on face.
- Don’t overdo, as that can damage new cells
BENEFITS OF EXFOLIATION
As we discussed earlier through exfoliation we remove our dead cells which were causing dullness and dryness on the skin. Following are the results you get through exfoliation:
- It helps in reducing dry and flaky patches.
- It deeply cleanses pores.
- Make it easier for other products to deeply penetrate in the skin.
- It helps in shrinking open pores.
- It increases blood circulation, which results in bringing back a glow on the skin.
- Chemical exfoliation helps in reducing wrinkles and fine lines.
There are many non-surgical treatments available that can exfoliate your skin. They have quick results and remove your dead skin through professional help.
- Chemical Peel
Both these treatments remove your dead skin through various chemicals and tools like derma rolls; they enhance collagen production, making skin smoother and toned, enhancing your complexion.
