Ever miss that youthful glow that you had when you were eighteen? I sure as heck miss my smooth, healthy and blemish-free skin of such and such and such years ago.. But by the time most of us reach our 30s, acne, sun damage, wind and plenty of other daily hazards have taken their toll on our complexion. Is there any way to reclaim that youthful beauty? The answer is yes. Exfoliate. Exfoliate. And oh, exfoliate.
Dull skin is often the result of dead cells. If you’re not cleaning your face vigorously enough, you may not be sloughing off the top layer of skin – leaving behind a decidedly unglamorous veil that could be obscuring the beautiful glow underneath.
Luckily, exposing healthy, brand-new skin is easy with exfoliation. Look for a product that uses natural ingredients and plenty of calming herbs and additives to help increase skin cell turnover without any harsh chemicals. If your skin is pretty tough, you may even be able to handle one that contains salicylic acid, a powerful acne-fighting ingredient that helps get rid of dead skin for good. Check out a cleanser with scrubbing beads for a gentle exfoliation. If you have acne prone or aging skin with a few wrinkles opt microdermabrasion.
Make sure that you add exfoliating to your routine today, you’ll start to see more beautiful skin tomorrow . When it comes to exfoliating, two to three times a week is plenty. Like with many luxuries, there can be too much of a good thing.
