Proper exfoliation gives your skin a refreshing feel like nothing else! It restores your skin's texture to its natural-self and makes your skin appear plump. These are not the only reasons why exfoliation should be a crucial part of your skincare routine! They are just the beginning of endless reasons why you should include exfoliation in your skincare regime for a brighter and healthier complexion. Be it cleansing, moisturizing or masking, every step in a normal skincare routine has its own set of benefits that you should not miss out on!
This post is going to be all about facial exfoliation and why it is so necessary for the benefit of your skin!
Why Facial Exfoliation Is Necessary
1. It gets rid of the skin's layer consisting of dead skin cells & reveals fresh new skin cells below
Our skin is made up of multiple layers. The topmost layer which is called the "stratum corneum", is the one that sheds dead skin cells regularly that may sometimes leads to clogged pores. While this layer of skin has the natural ability to get rid of dead skin cells, exfoliation just accelerates the natural process and is more effective.
The small particles contained in an exfoliator - whether it is a DIY one or one from the market, help to get rid of the dead skin cells when you scrub your skin in gentle circular motions. This step reveals a fresh new layer of skin cells that make your skin appear fresh and radiant while making your skin's texture smoother.
2. It gets rid of blackheads & whiteheads effectively
Blackheads and whiteheads are a result of clogged pores. Not to exaggerate, but blackheads are usually really difficult to get rid of! However, regular exfoliation is surely very helpful in getting rid of them while also preventing their future occurrence by clearing out the dirt and debris present deep within your facial pores!
In addition to that, it also controls acne breakouts by keeping your skin clean and fresh.
Remember - don't scrub your face aggressively while trying to get rid of your blackheads or whiteheads! Being aggressive with your skin while exfoliating it can cause inflamed spots on your face or lead to post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.
3. It removes tanning on the skin
Scrubbing your skin for just a couple of minutes can remove tanning on your skin and totally brighten up your complexion!
Sometimes, dirt and oil build-up on the skin is the main reason behind the dull and tanned appearance of the skin. An exfoliant rich in Vitamin C based ingredients can help out your skin by reducing the tanning and improving your skin's complexion. Our newly launched Lime Light Exfoliator Mask is enriched with lemon oil, turmeric extract, aloe vera and argan oil that improve the skin's complexion. Its walnut beads remove the dirt and dead skin cells off your skin and rejuvenate it.

4. It boosts circulation towards your skin
There are various ways to increase the blood circulation towards your skin, like facial yoga, using jade rollers or simply by massaging it with a moisturizer/oil for a couple of minutes! And exfoliation is about as effective as any of them.
The increase in blood circulation towards your facial skin accelerates the skin regeneration process. This increased circulation improves the elasticity of your skin and also carries away the free radicals from healthy skin cells.
5. It lets your moisturizer & lotion penetrate deeper into your skin
By sloughing off the dirt and dead skin cells off of your skin, exfoliation opens up your pores and makes your skincare products such as face masks, moisturizers, or serum, sink deeper into your skin's layers - giving you the maximum effectiveness out of them. It is recommended that you exfoliate your skin only 2-3 times a week and follow it up with a skin-pampering face mask or a natural skin brightening moisturizer like DeBelle Fairness Cream.
