Importance of Winter Exfoliating
Importance of Exfoliating in Winter
Exfoliating is a vital part of winter skincare. It helps clear out dead skin cells, which help the hydrating products you apply penetrate the skin deeper. In addition, it helps you achieve a glowing complexion. However, not everyone is able to get the results they want from exfoliating, so it's important to find out what works for your particular skin type.
The best way to exfoliate is to use a scrub. There are a number of different options on the market. These include apricot scrubs, which are often found in drug stores. Another option is a manual exfoliator. This method involves using a cloth or mesh to gently buff away the dead skin. If you are using a chemical exfoliant, you should follow the manufacturer's instructions and test a small area first.
Some of the best products to use are those containing antioxidants and vitamin C. This is because the antioxidants help remove dead skin cells, and the vitamin C helps keep the face bright. However, if you are not a fan of the smell of chemicals, you can choose a serum instead. A serum is a good choice because it has smaller molecules than a cream moisturizer, which means it can penetrate the skin more easily.
You might also consider purchasing an acidic toner. This is especially important in the winter when the air is chilly and your skin is dry. Also, you might want to opt for a heavier moisturizer. When your skin is very dry, you can suffer from breakouts. To prevent them, you should exfoliate, clean your face, and moisturise, as well.
It's also a good idea to make your own at home scrub. You can purchase an all-in-one herbal face cleansing lotion that exfoliates the skin. Other ways to exfoliate include using loofahs or a salt or sugar scrub. You should be careful to rinse the salt or sugar scrub off your face afterward, however, as it may contain a lot of sodium.
In general, you should exfoliate at least once or twice a week. Your doctor will be able to tell you which frequency is right for you. Using the right products will make your skincare routine easier and more effective.
You should also make sure to drink plenty of water, as the cold weather can take its toll on your skin. Dry air can be harsh on your skin, and you should do everything you can to avoid dry air indoors. Indoor heat can also cause dry skin. For those who are sensitive, you can try an exfoliating facial scrub, but you should do a patch test first to see if it will irritate your skin.
Finally, if you have dry skin, you might want to consider investing in a light hydrator. This type of moisturizer is easy to apply, absorbs quickly, and gives you 24-hour moisture. Moreover, it's great for all seasons.
It's not always easy to keep your skin looking young and fresh, but exfoliating is one of the most effective ways to do it. It will reveal your skin's youthful glow, and will help your hydrating products work more effectively. To learn more reasons why you should exfoliate, check out our Why Exfoliate blog.
