Exfoliate Your Skin

Who wants dead skin cells? No one!

Dead skin cells can be found all over your body. Take a look at your legs. Is your skin dry? Do you see flaky skin cells that can be easily brushed off? Well if you do, let me tell you that lotion won’t stop the flakiness. Your remedy is to exfoliate your skin regularly. It is important to take good care of your skin.

This post will help you identify different ways in which you can leave your skin radiant, fresh, clean, soft, and leave your body glowing.

First, you must know the different types of exfoliantes for your skin:

  • Chemical Scrubs (these include alpha-hydroxy acids and salicylic acids). exfoliate2Chemical exfoliants typically won’t irritate your skin as much as physical scrubs (depending on how often and how much you use them). When using this type of exfoliants keep in mind that when you use them in moderation, you might encounter flaky skin and some irritation.
  • exfoliate3Physical Scrubs (these can be sugars, salt, and oatmeal). Physical exfoliants can be also referred to as mechanical exfoliants because they involve physically removing the dead cells from your face. An important thing to consider when using physical exfoliants such as loofas is to not scrub so hard because it can irritate and break your skin; therefore, causing your skin to bleed. Your skin is sensitive so don’t overdo it.

Here are some videos I follow in order to take care of my skin:

Did you know that 30,000-40,000 skin cells fall off you per minute? Or to put it in a larger perspective: did you know that an average of 8.8 pounds of dead skin cells fall off your body yearly? These and other results are what The Boston Globe concluded in 2008.
