Should i Exfoliate?

Exfoliation has a stigma of being a “Woman’s thing”, but that’s far from the truth. Both men and women have skin, so why would it only be a “woman’s thing”? Skin is the bodies largest organ and covers you from head to toe so you should most definitely pamper it, no matter if you’re a man or woman. But if you need more convincing, continue reading to learn all about the amazing benefits of exfoliating.
I’m sure your hygiene routine consists of hydrating (well, it should, if doesn’t, then that’s another issue!), if it does, that’s great! What’s not great is if even after hydrating i.e. with a face lotion, you still experience dry skin. Dry skin could be itchy, flaky, inflamed, red, and very sensitive. You would think, that if that’s the case, you should just lather on more moisturizer, but nope, that won’t help. Your dry skin is most likely because you neglected an important step in the skin cleansing routine, exfoliating! When you exfoliate, it helps to get rid of dead skin cells and opens up pores to be able to receive whatever moisturizer you decide to use. Exfoliating your skin, both face and body, is essential for three main reasons:
Deep Cleaning
Exfoliating gets deep down inside pores and clears out debris, such a dirt, dead skills and bacteria. Ensuring your skin receives a deep cleansing regularly is crucial to maintain healthy, clean and clear skin.

Enhanced blood flow
The act of exfoliating increases blood circulation to the skin. Why is this important? Skin requires adequate blood circulation to heal. Scars from blemishes, acne, ingrown hairs, razor bumps, cuts etc. take much longer to heal if the skin is not receiving proper blood circulation. Lack of oxygenated blood to the skin also can also cause dark spots and skin that is pale and dull. A big part of having that youthful glow to your skin is ensuring proper blood flow via exfoliating.

Improved Texture
Exfoliating is widely known to improve skins texture. Using a quality exfoliant can slough away rough dead skin. Does rough dead skin sound like it would be smooth to the touch? Nope, not at all. Does exfoliated skin with fresh, rejuvenated cells sound smooth? It sure does.

So now you know why to exfoliate, but what kind of exfoliant should you use? There are many different types of scrubs in the market, sugar, salt, coffee and even ones that use nuts. Each one of them have their niche and their own benefits, however, when you can find a scrub that incorporates more than one, then you’ve found yourself a winner. Coffee scrubs can be used on body and face without the risk of irritation to skin. Most of us drink coffee for the energy kick from the caffeine, but it also can give a good kick to your skin. The caffeine has natural antibacterial and antioxidant properties that help clear the skin of toxins. It also helps to tighten the skin to give it a more youthful look. Not to mention that caffeine is cellulites kryptonite. Salt is a natural disinfectant and purifier. Sugar acts as a natural humectant (reduces loss of moisture).
