Cleansing, moisturizing, and exfoliating, oh my!
These are three integral things you are sure to come across on your search for healthier skin but if you are going to take one practice seriously within your routine, it should be exfoliation.
No matter how important or not your skincare is to your daily life, exfoliating is something your skin just cannot afford to skip out on.
What is exfoliation?
Naturally, our skin sheds its dead surface every month to regenerate new skin cells. Unfortunately, often the dead skin does not completely shed resulting in common issues such as clogged pores, oily skin, or dry and flaky skin. This is where exfoliating becomes your best friend!
Exfoliation is the process of removing the dead skin cells left on your skin's outermost surface and one can achieve this through either physical or chemical exfoliating.
What Will it Do for Your Skin?
Exfoliating can improve your skin in various ways and will assist in treating the following skin issues.
Acne, Blackheads and Clogged Pores
You can reduce acne breakouts and black heads by keeping pores unclogged of dirt, debris, and oil with regular exfoliation.
Pigmentation and Acne Scars
Exfoliating regularly can remove skin in the outer layer that is darkened, resulting in lightened hyperpigmentation and acne scars.
The removal of dead and dull skin cells with exfoliation can result in radiant skin while also helping anti-aging products work better.
Exfoliating is a top answer to many skin related problems, however, the use of harsh and abrasive ingredients that are in most exfoliating products and techniques can be harmful to sensitive skin types.
We recommend using Cure Aqua Gel to gently remove the dull, dry surface of the skin without the use of strong acids or materials which makes for an easy, non-irritating exfoliant.
Using Cure Aqua Gel can not only treat pesky skin issues but will make it easier for your other topical skin-care products to penetrate and work more effectively.
It is also an exfoliator that can be used on more than just your face! You should also be full body exfoliating and treating areas such as the neck, décolleté, waist, hips, elbows, heels and anywhere else that may need some extra TLC.
How Often Should you be Exfoliating?
Taking in consideration what your skin can handle, it is recommended to exfoliate 2 to 3 times a week.
If your skin is sensitive or easily irritated then do so less frequently and be sure to always use the gentle exfoliator that is equipped for all skin types, Cure Aqua Gel.
