There are myths and misconceptions surrounding facial exfoliation, also referred to as facial scrubbing. Our skin generally sheds off and renews itself about every 30 days. Exfoliation tackles this problem by getting rid of the skin dead cells. At Chevy Chase Facial Plastic Surgery we offer facial exfoliation treatments to help you keep your skin rejuvenated and refreshed at all times.
Exfoliating Delays Symptoms of Aging
None of us are going to live forever, but that doesn’t mean we want to age faster. With age, your skin tends to sag and get wrinkled due to the rampant dying of skin cells which accumulate. Exfoliating helps with getting rid of the dead cells to retain healthy, glowing skin.
It Evens Skin Texture
Do you feel like your skin is rough and dry even though you cleanse and moisturize daily? Facial exfoliation helps to get rid of stubborn skin cells that make the skin dry and rough allowing the skin to feel smoother and softer.
It Reduces Acne Breakouts
Victims of acne and pimple breakouts should try exfoliating with the right products. Scrubbing unclogs blocked pores that lead to acne and pimples on the skin. Once the excess oil and dirt are extracted from the pores, the acne will reduce significantly.
It Allows the Skin to Absorb Skincare Products
You are probably wondering why you are experiencing the results of some skin care products that have worked properly on your friends. Without facial exfoliation, the pores on the skin remain blocked. With blocked pores means the skin care products you apply will not be well absorbed into the deeper layer of your skin. By unblocking the pores, it gives a better track for the products to penetrate giving the best nourishment.
It Soothes Itchiness
That itchy feeling that keeps switching places can be annoying. Facial exfoliating may help soothe the itchiness by getting rid of the dirt trapped causing the discomfort. Exfoliating the skin regularly leaves the skin clean and free from itchiness.
After facial exfoliation, the treatment should be coupled by moisturizing to optimize the results. It is advisable that you choose your exfoliators wisely. With the market flooded with products, some could be harmful to the skin. Some home remedies such as sugar, sea salt, honey, and apple vinegar among others do an equally great job in facial exfoliation. Exfoliate regularly to maintain beautiful skin. Experts suggest once or twice a week will keep your face glowing.
