3 Reasons why you need exfoliation in your routine

When Egyptians started an ancient method to exfoliate their skin using wine and tartaric acid as the active agent centuries ago, they were already trendsetters of their time. They knew what they were doing if they wanted to achieve youthful and vibrant looking skin.

But why do we exfoliate? Is there really a necessity to?

Exfoliation is like the awkward cousin in the skincare routine family, where not everyone acknowledges its importance and are unsure if it should be embraced and included.

Here are 3 reasons why exfoliation is just as important as cleansing your face:

1. Unclog the Pores

Imagine this. Wearing the latest fashion, looking hot in your Steve Maddens and when checking yourself out in the mirror, alas! Your face looks like it has a multitude of pores, black and white ones populating all over. Not cool at all and it definitely doesn’t go well with your Steve Maddens. When you do exfoliate, the dirt accumulated in your pores will not only be scrubbed away, your pores will also diminish in size. This will help prevent acne or pimples that are caused by bacterial infection.

2. Improve Skin Texture

I am not sure about you but I don’t want to look tired all the time or God forbid, like walking dead, especially when I have an important date. Our skin regenerates itself all the time and truth be told, we carry dead skin cells everyday on our body. Exfoliating these dead cells will help our skin renewal process to speed up, revealing smoother and clearer skin.

3. Maintain Youthful Skin

As much as we wish time can stand still like in the movies, it unfortunately doesn’t. As we age, our skin ages as well and it becomes less supple and elastic. It will also become drier, causing lines and wrinkles to easily appear. When you exfoliate, you are clearing away the dead cells accumulated over the years, and your skin has a chance to look radiant, maintaining its youthful glow.

Knowing what exfoliation is about is important but knowing how to exfoliate is even more important. Try to exfoliate at least once a week, especially before you use any types of sheet masks or serums, so to elevate your skin’s ability to absorb the active ingredients in your sheet masks and serums. Choosing a good exfoliator is important as a wrong one could cause disastrous reactions to your skin. Try Flawless Skin Renewal Essence for gentle exfoliation using Glycolic Acid, Lactic Acid and an infusion of skin brightening antioxidants.

If you want skin exfoliation with professional results, our MatriCol Refiner Treatment is highly recommended. It is a skin peel exfoliation, where unique ingredients like Gluconolactone can be applied even on those with sensitive skin.

You can benefit from a significant reduction in fine lines and improved radiance, leading to a brighter skin glow. And if that’s not enough, we pair it with one of the best grade collagen used in the aesthetic field, where your skin can receive the much needed proteins to keep it healthy and youthful.
