When it comes to taking better care of your skin, there’s a lot of things that can be done. This can be based on your lifestyle or your environment. What you eat can also be a factor to how well your skin is. Regardless of what methods you implore, there’s one thing that you need to agree to; exfoliating is an important step to keeping your skin well and healthy.
Once you hit the late twenties or earthy thirties, you’re going to be experiencing a slower rate of your body pushing off the layer of dead skin cells. It’s important to get this layer off of your body or it will cause you a lot of harm such as acne and other skin care issues.
Exfoliating can be daunting to beginners but here are some easy steps you can follow:
- Exfoliation only twice a month, with enough days in between. This gives your skin the time to really repair from exfoliation and make the most out of tanned skin. It’s quite common for tanning addicts to exfoliate prior to getting a tan.
- You can make use of natural means of exfoliating. While there’s a lot of commercial products for exfoliating, there are natural ones too. If you have sensitive skin, oatmeal is a great way to help you exfoliate. They are gentle to the skin and also help in keeping it moisturized. If you think oatmeal isn’t good enough, why not go for some brown sugar? Brown sugar may seem sharp but its really not that harsh on your skin. You can make use of some buttermilk to really keep your skin well-moisturized.
- Avoid overdoing your exfoliation. Remember, you’re just removing the outermost layer of impurities and not rubbing off the bad emotions that are so desperately clinging to your psyche.
