Does Exfoliating Promote Good Overall Skin Health?

Getting Rid of Dead Skin Cells

Perhaps you’ve used a loofa or rubbed a washcloth briskly over your skin. You might have experienced a refreshing tingle that made your skin feel extra clean and rejuvenated. That special glow your skin gets after getting rid of dead skin cells is part of the benefit that comes with exfoliating. Exfoliating is one of the easiest ways to make yourself look and feel healthier.

5 Reasons for Exfoliating Your Skin

Here are five reasons to exfoliate.

1. Reduces Old Skin Cells to Make Room for New Skin

One of the most recommended methods of exfoliating is one that most people can do without spending a single cent. A washcloth can be your best go-to when it comes to skin exfoliation. Exfoliating can benefit all types of skin. Our dermatologists can teach you the proper technique to use for your skin type.

2. Exfoliating Your Face Can Help Give You a More Youthful Appearance

Skin exfoliation can help to take years off of your age. Exfoliating your face offers a healthy way to look younger and more vibrant with very little time or expense spent. Incorporating an exfoliating routine into your daily hygiene habits can go a long way to helping you feel better about yourself while getting rid of dead skin cells.

3. Removes the Impurities of Daily Life

Exfoliating can help get rid of the pollution that is all around us in the air. Dust, dirt, and other impurities can mix with the oil in your skin to make blackheads. Skin exfoliation not only gets rid of dead skin cells, but it can rub down into a blackhead, giving the impurities an escape route that will result in cleaner and clearer skin.

4. Helps Control Breakouts

When you exfoliate your skin, you are helping to get rid of the cause of breakouts. Reducing the main cause of your breakout can help your skin to heal and new, healthy skin cells to regenerate. One of our dermatologists can help you choose an appropriate cleanser and lotion for your skin type to further benefit your skin exfoliation results.

5. Can Help Smooth the Texture of Your Skin

You might have skin that is not as smooth as you want it to be. Skin exfoliation is a good way to help even out rough patches on all areas of your skin. Your face needs less pressure than your thighs and arms, so make sure that you are gentle enough for whatever area of your body you are working on. Your skin type is a large part of what determines the type of treatment that will be best for you.
