Benefits Of Exfoliating Your Skin
The Winter has well and truly hit us here in Victoria, which has been leaving our bodies and skin feeling a little under the weather… If you’re feeling the same way as we do, I think its time we start to make sure we incorporate this very important beauty tip into our weekly regime! Exfoliating… prepare yourself to reap the benefits from head to toe!
Gives you that healthy glow
I’m sure you’ve all experienced that magical moment just after a good exfoliating session where your skin is left extremely soft and smooth, and if you haven’t… then let me tell you that you are definitely missing out on one of the many simple pleasures in life! Using body scrubs in the shower is a good and easy way to regularly relieve your skin from feeling dull, rough and dry. Try out the Bean Body Coffee Scrubs... to die for! This scrub comes in Vanilla, Peppermint and Coconut but also has a special Man Scrub, just to make sure your men are taken care of too. Exfoliating leaves the skin feeling smooth, clean and looking as fresh as ever by removing dirt and dead skin cells from the skins surface, which essentially is what has been leading your skin to feel a little worse for wear.
Helps to absorb the good stuff
Exfoliating your skin helps to unblock your pores by removing any dirt and dead skin cells present. If your pores are blocked, your skin is unable to absorb the benefits of those natural and organic skincare products you use on your skin everyday. So, by making sure your pores are clean and clear it can help to ensure your skin is gaining all the nourishment that is provided by your body lotions and oils. (Not only your face, but all over!) Our favourite facial exfoliators would definitely have to be Madara’s Exfoliating Oil -to-Milk Scrub and the Jojoba Bead & Bamboo Facial Exfoliant. Two classics!
Fights signs of ageing
A little prevention never hurt nobody! As we age we all know that everything starts so slow down a little bit… and in this case, it’s our skins ability to shed those dreaded dead skin cells. Dead skin cells are often what cause those unwanted lines and wrinkles, so by exfoliating regularly we can help to make sure our skin stays up to date with that shedding process, because who doesn’t want to age as gracefully as possible! The Raw Philosophy have three luxurious body scrubs that effectively buff and remove dry dead surface cells, whilst conditioning your skin with organic Coconut Oil leaving it incredibly smooth and supple. If you have trouble choosing which one to try we have a bundle of all three!
Exfoliating Glove and Towel Benefits
While exfoliating, dead skin cells are buffed off with an abrasive surface, such as a body scrub full of salt, sugar and coffee beans. Skin brushing, exfoliating gloves and towels are a great method of exfoliation while apply these scrubs. They provide a rough surface that helps remove dead skin cells and also produces good blood circulation.
Meeka Body's Ramie Exfoliating Towel helps unblock your pores and rejuvenate your skin. It has just the right texture to exfoliate the skin with out causing damage or irritation. Apply a small amount of body wash and scrub away. Regular use helps improve your bodies blood circulation and helps eliminate toxins.
