Is Exfoliation Necessary?


 


Ever since skincare routines have evolved, exfoliation is always included in the list -- be it physical or chemical. However, not every individual is comfortable with the thought of exfoliating their skin. Some may be confused with all the products available in the market because the ingredients are quite confusing while some may have never considered using any exfoliator at all. Our skin naturally exfoliates every 28 days but it could use a little help for a faster turnaround time to regenerate healthier skin and that’s where exfoliators come in. 


Regular exfoliation enhances absorption of skincare products. Exfoliation helps get rid of dead skin cells so your skin will be ready to absorb all the goodness of the skincare products that you just applied. When you don’t exfoliate enough, applying layers of skincare products will be useless as they will just sit on top of your skin and not penetrate deeply resulting in little to no improvement. Try to exfoliate one to two times per week depending on your skin’s tolerance and needs. 

 


You will get fewer breakouts. Breakouts are usually caused by clogged pores. Since regular exfoliation helps get rid of dead skin cells, it also unclogs your pores making your skin less oily and less prone to acne. 


Achieve a healthy glow. Because skincare products are absorbed properly and penetrate deeper into your skin when you exfoliate regularly, you will be able to reap all the benefits of the skincare products that you’re using. Make sure you’re using an antioxidant like Wildleaf’s Vitamin C Serum to fight all the free radicals from the environment and help you achieve a glowing skin faster.

 

 

Get smooth looking skin. Aside from preventing breakouts by unclogging pores, regular exfoliation also helps get rid of whiteheads and blackheads making your skin look smooth if compared to not exfoliating at all. 


Exfoliation offers anti aging benefits. It helps stimulate collagen production to improve skin’s texture and keep the skin looking smooth and plump. 


It helps even out your skin tone. We know it’s a little frustrating to have dark spots, acne scars and hyperpigmentation. Fret not because when you make exfoliation a habit, skin regeneration will be faster and will help reveal a healthier, more even skin tone in no time. 


Exfoliation shouldn’t be confusing and difficult. Try our newly released product, Wildleaf’s Calming Oatmeal Scrub to gently exfoliate and cleanse your skin. Oats and aloe heal while our combination of botanical oils provide protection from free radicals and the adverse effects of the sun. It’s soothing, rich formulation will help reveal bright and renewed skin.
