Often this step is not taken into account in the routine of beauty and self-care, but the exfoliation of the face and body is important to maintain a beautiful and healthy skin. The cells of the skin follow a cycle in which they multiply, die and regenerate. When the dead cells are on the skin, it looks dull, aged and withered. Exfoliation helps accelerate the process, stimulating blood circulation and cell renewal. In addition, it removes dead cells and makes the skin better prepared to absorb moisturizing and nourishing products. The result is a much more flexible, soft and luminous skin.
The skin of the face and body require different care and products
The skin of the face is permanently exposed to climatic conditions and other external agents, and also internal, such as stress or eating habits. That is why it is also the first area that suffers the effects of aging and the one that needs the most attention. The skin of the face has a greater amount of sebaceous glands and this, together with the contamination of the environment and makeup products, causes it to accumulate a large amount of impurities and dead cells. Thanks to a periodic exfoliation, the skin stays perfectly clean and conditioned to take advantage of all the properties of the products that will keep it protected and taken care of. It is recommended to exfoliate once or twice a week to respect the acid mantle of the skin and its Ph.
The skin of the body, however, is protected from environmental factors by clothing. The signs of age appear after the face, but it does not mean that you do not have to provide a series of care. The exfoliation of the body can be carried out a couple of times per week, before applying the moisturizing products. If we are following an anti-cellulite treatment routine, the exfoliation will fulfill two functions: to stimulate the circulation in those conflicting zones and to make the skin more permeable to absorb the product in question.
If we want the exfoliation process to be perfect, it must be accompanied by a massage, making circular and ascending movements, both on the face and body. In this way, drainage is favored and circulation is activated, two of the greatest benefits of the exfoliation routine. The skin will remain perfectly soft, beautiful and healthy.
