A good cleanser isn’t the only way to slough off dead cells.
In addition to cleaning and moisturizing your face daily, you’ll want to exfoliate your skin, too. That way, the likelihood of developing blemishes and other skin issues lessens. Your skin maintains the healthy glow you’ve developed throughout your regimented skin care routine. You’ll need to use fewer products to see your desired results.
Here are some of the ways to effectively exfoliate your skin in addition to using a gentle and natural cleanser:
- A brush with natural bristles. Dry brushing helps activate a stagnant lymphatic system which is responsible for removing waste products from the body. When your lymph nodes are blocked, it’s because the toxins aren’t being excreted properly. Choosing skin care products made from natural ingredients and using a brush with natural bristles to stimulate the lymphatic system and coax it into doing its job is how you achieve smoother, healthier skin. You can brush from the bottom of your feet to the top of your head using gentle circular motions in a clockwise direction for best results.
- Exfoliating gloves. Similar in texture to a bristled brush, an exfoliating glove can be worn on the hand and used to slough dead skin cells off the body easily and effectively. A sugar scrub or body wash with exfoliant in it helps aid the process. The key is to not rub the skin too hard, so you don’t break it. You’ll also want to avoid using any tool that is extremely abrasive on your face. If you do, it’s likely to be red, inflamed, and irritated.
There are many different ways to gently exfoliate your skin. Choosing a good cleanser with natural scrubbing properties is essential. The other options listed above provide effective yet gentle exfoliation. Adding them to your skincare routine ensures that your skin is smooth at all times. You’ll have a much easier time applying moisturizer and preventing your skin from aging prematurely because you’ll always be fresh-faced and ready to go.
