Exfoliation has been under-represented in the field of beauty and skin health as its impacts on the prevention of aging is huge. When we are young, our skin renews itself every 30 days or so. Once we are over 40, this process of renewal takes more like 60 days! So we need some extra help shedding the layers of dead skin cells which cause dullness and uneven skin tones and make it more difficult for us to maintain that youthful glow. Enter the exfoliator or scrub!
Many scrubs actually strip the skin dry as they exfoliate, so look out for a face scrub which has an organic moisturiser as its base to ensure both the benefits of exfoliation and avoidance of drying out the skin. Whenever you choose a scrub make sure you choose a gentle one and only scrub 2-3 times a week unless you have quite oily skin. And avoid plastic microbeads.
